The beginning of March brings with it a sigh of relief: winter is coming to an end. Spring is in sight, and here at Happy Gardens, we’re looking forward to everything that comes with that first bloom: longer days, sunny afternoons and tons of time to get our hands dirty or simply relax outdoors.
Here are five great ways to start getting ready for spring today:
- Make a Garden Plan
- Order New Garden Decor
- Add a Pop of “Classic Blue”
- Invest in Easy, Eco-Friendly Lighting
- Consider Something for the Birds
1. Make a Garden Plan
Now is the time to tidy up flower beds and make space for whatever you want to grow when the weather warms up. Order your summer-flowering bulbs and seeds now, and sow the seeds that need a longer season (like eggplant, peppers and geraniums) ASAP. Now is also the perfect time to maintain your garden tools and reorder any items (like a shovel or tool belt) that need replacing.
2. Order New Garden Decor
It’s also the perfect time to order unique garden decor you wish to debut as soon as weather permits. Colorful pieces like funky rain chains, statement garden stakes, and bold wind chimes bring instant charm and energy to your garden. Try adding decor in both traditional (along a walkway, on a stoop) and unexpected (within a flowerbed or alone in a grassy field) places.
3. Add a Pop of “Classic Blue”
Classic blue is Pantone’s color of the year in 2020. It’s a bold but simple neutral that goes with most every style of home and garden, from traditional to beachy to shabby chic to modern. Try adding classic blue pillows to your outdoor furniture or a sapphire-hued garden stake, like our blue heart garden stake.
4. Invest in Easy, Eco-Friendly Lighting
One way to “light up” your garden without investing in timers (or an electrician) is by choosing outdoor lights that are solar-powered. From illuminating a walkway to stringing bistro lights from your favorite trees, don’t underestimate how much of a glow-up your garden can enjoy with just a $100 or so of new lights.
5. Consider Something for the Birds
Finally, if you’re going to do a bit of redecorating, why not pick something out that benefits both you and your local feathered friends? At Happy Gardens, we have a vast collection of gorgeous, charming and handcrafted birdhouses for you to choose from. We also have birdbaths, bird feeders and tons of bird-inspired garden decor.
