Early spring is the perfect time to say goodbye to the winter blahs and bring your landscape back to life with new plantings. The team at Landwork Contractors offers a wide variety of options for your spring planting designs.  

What Should I Plant in Spring?

As the earth warms up, it creates a perfect environment for new plants to grow and thrive. The temps are perfect. The soil is moist and rich. There’s plenty of time for plants to take root. Here’s a guide for your spring planting plans. 

Sod/Lawns- Your lawn can really take a beating from winter weather. Brown spots, layers of thatch, and silt often pop up during those winter months. Although you can install sod at most anytime, spring is a great time to consider a sod installation. A fresh layer of sod in the spring gives your grass time to take root before summer. 

Dogwoods– These beauties are a crowd favorite. They have lovely blooms that give off a soft, pleasant fragrance. Dogwoods stay beautiful throughout the summer. Even better, they turn vibrant colors in the fall, giving your home year-long beauty. 

Spruce- Spruce trees offer lush colors all year long with a variety of benefits. These trees can create shade, add privacy, lower noise pollution, slow erosion, and even help you cut utility costs

Magnolias- The soft, sweet scent of magnolia blossoms makes every day better. From their pink and white blooms to their hardy bright leaves, these trees can turn your home into a regal retreat. 

Perennials- The brilliant colored blooms and vibrant leaves of perennials are showstoppers each spring. Some perennials are better planted in the fall, so contact your trusted professional landscapers to help you choose the right fit. Here are just a few to consider:

  • Forget-Me-Nots
  • Hellebores
  • Creeping Phlox
  • Primrose
  • Peony
  • Clematis
  • Iris
  • Verbena
Petunia Annual Flowers

Annuals- A spring garden isn’t complete without a few fresh annuals. Annual flowers are planted in the spring and bloom all season long. After the season is over, they often die out, giving you the perfect opportunity to switch up your designs twice a year. Consider these beauties for your spring annuals:

  • Pansy
  • Petunia
  • Annual Phlox
  • Lobelia
  • Snapdragon
