Count on the Professionals at Meadowlark to Bring Your Landscape Design Ideas to Life

The cold weather is ramping up in Wichita, which means it is the ideal time to put your garden to bed for a long winter’s nap. Putting in the work now means that your garden will be ready to go when spring arrives.

Winter also happens to be the ideal time to get started on those large landscaping and hardscaping projects you have always dreamed about. Although this may sound premature to some, starting your spring landscaping and hardscaping planning now affords you the luxury of time.

When homeowners have multiple months to devote to their spring landscaping ideas, it allows for thoughtful design, efficient execution, and a well-prepared canvas for the season of renewal. After exploring some spring landscaping and hardscape design ideas, we will provide some useful information about how to get started on your project.

Spring Landscaping Ideas to Boost Your Curb Appeal

The dormant period of winter turns every yard into a clean slate, which makes the conceptualization of spring landscaping ideas a little easier. Without the usual flora in bloom, you can assess which areas of your property can use a pop of color, a fresh vegetable garden, or a new tree.

Consider the following landscape ideas and tips when planning your outdoor space:

  • Designate the areas where your new ideas will go. That includes any spring flowers, hedges, bushes, tree saplings, and hardscaping upgrades. Because hardscaping is a permanent feature, it is usually best to plan around your must-have hardscape design ideas.

  • Daffodils, tulips, and other plant bulbs can be planted in early winter so long as the soil is still workable and the hole is dug deep enough. Be sure to document where you planted your bulbs so they’re not overlooked during your landscape design process.

  • Most of your bold colors will come from spring flowers, which essentially serve as splashes of paint in your landscaping’s canvas. When evaluating your flower options, be sure to consult with your local landscaping professional about your options and what you need to do to ensure a successful season of spring blooming.

  • When evaluating plants, do not focus on color alone. Focus on their shape and texture, too. For example, a spiky green plant positioned adjacently to cloudy bouquets of citrus orange flowers will engage the eye.

  • If your spring landscaping ideas include a vegetable garden, be sure to set aside space for it. Squash, onions, turnips, tomatoes, beets, and peppers can all thrive in Kansas.

Hardscape Design Ideas to Consider This Winter

Hardscaping introduces grays, earth tones, and an entirely different world of textures and shapes. They also bring some much-need functionality to an unused area of outdoor space. Hardscaping can be used for small projects like walkways, garden bed edging, or to diversify the scenery.

For those who truly wish to enhance their outdoor space, consider fire pits, outdoor patios, outdoor kitchens with dining space, and custom designed solutions. If you can dream it, the team at Meadowlark can build it.

The beauty of hardscaping is that the outdoor space becomes an extension of your home where friends and family can gather and socialize.
