Written by Debbi Spiegel  |  27. March 2013

We are waiting with anticipation for Spring to make its welcomed return. After being trapped indoors due to frigid temperatures and snow, we all welcome the warmer weather and heading back outside. Start this fresh new season off right by refreshing your garden.  Our landscape has taken a beating from Mother Nature from both Superstorm Sandy and the blizzard Nemo.

Now is the time to start thinking about your future garden. Check out local nursery's selection of lovely annuals for your garden. Garden centers are  happy to share their knowledge about various annuals, colors, sizes and combinations that you can purchase there.  They can also answer questions about watering and sunlight requirements.  Butterfly bushes come in a variety of colors and truly attract butterflies.  They can add another level of excitement to your garden.

Landscape architects can be very helpful if you are looking for major changes.  Their detailed plans will help you see the endless possibilities for your garden.   Start thinking about green lawns, perennial gardens, ornamental trees, pond and container gardens and vegetable gardens. 

Here are some great places to shop for your garden:
