The early bird gets the worm! With spring just around the corner, now is the perfect time to start planning for your spring garden.

We’ve gathered a few of our most popular Spring services to help create a garden that’s ready for season’s festivities.

Orange Pink is the new Black

Seasonal color is a great way to quickly transform your garden. This small change can have a huge impact on your landscape, providing areas of your garden with more seasonal variety and colorful accents than any other plant choices.

Below are some of our favorite spring blooms!

Snapdragons

A classic annual, Snapdragons have been grown for generations. Not only are they appreciated for their bright, cheery colors, but they are also an important nectar plant for bumblebees.

Snapdragons come in just about every shade, from vibrant bold tones to soft pastels, and subtly shaded bi-colors; they are perfect for adding pops of bright color and height to any spring garden!

Begonias

Begonias have been around for ages, and with good reason: This easy-to-grow annual does well in a variety of conditions and needs little to thrive. Provide your begonias with light shade, rich well-drained soil, ample water, and plenty of fertilizer—and you’ll be rewarded with stunning flowers and foliage.

With so many different shapes, sizes, and colors, begonias have no problem taking the spotlight or adding a great contrast in any garden setting.

Bougainvillea

If you’re looking for a tough tropical vine with lots of color, look no further! Bougainvillea plants are tough as nails, which includes their nail-like thorns.

These plants put on a spectacular show of vibrant color in spring with their fresh new growth. If you’re considering planting bougainvillea in your garden, be sure to allow plenty of room for it to spread and grow.

For dramatic garden color [insert bulbs here]

With a little forethought, you can orchestrate a symphony of color in your garden this spring and herald an end to the gloomy winter days.

For inspiration, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite bulbs to catapult your garden to life and celebrate the change of season.

 Plant any of these bulbs in your garden and containers for a lush spring garden!

 Tulips

With so many shapes and colors available, it can be difficult to choose just one type of tulip to grow in your garden. Luckily, planting a combination of these brightly colored jewels is always an option.

Combine your favorite colors and varieties to create your own version of the famed Dutch tulip fields.

Daffodils

The most versatile and cheery of spring bulbs, Daffodils are beloved for their trumpeted blooms, bright colors, and ability to thrive in any and all conditions.

It’s no wonder Daffodils symbolize friendship; they are sure to entice all your guests out into the welcomed spring weather to admire their cheery colors and unmatched beauty.

 Ranunculus

Ranunculus flowers look almost too perfect to be real. An all-time LBJ favorite, their rose-like blossoms feature layer upon layer of tissue-thin petals and come in colors that range from cream and pale yellow to apricot to pink, orange, red, and burgundy.

Though not seen in home gardens as often as they deserve, the exquisite flowers of ranunculus are a staple in high-end flower shops and decadent wedding bouquets.

Show your Crepe Myrtles some love

Late winter (now) is the best time to give your Crepe Myrtles a haircut; this leafless state allows you to easily see all of the branches and make the necessary snips. Blooms form on new growth, so careful pruning now will guarantee the most blooms during the growing season.
