The joys of early Spring gardening include warm sunshine on your face and arms, blue skies, birdsong, and the scent of freshly turned soil. The temperatures are trending upward – finally – and we are all outdoors getting the yards in shape for spring. It was hard to get started in the garden this season due to heavy precipitation and very cold temperatures. It’s time to get the cold weather vegetables in, especially the peas, radishes, greens and parsley.
Leave your mulch in place until early May to protect tender plants from frost and cold nights. Address drainage issues early before you plant your annuals, shrubs or specimen trees. Be careful not to rake out or weed your perennial gardens too early.

If you have a yard that could use a little help, consider adding hardscapes to your property. The addition of a retaining wall, a stone walkway or patio are all ways to add functionality and interest. Border gardens and shrubbery enhance and soften the hardscapes as well. Our helpful staff here at Stonehedge can assist you with any sized project – large or small, we do it all. We offer design services, project planning, management, and installation for both residential and commercial customers throughout Connecticut.
