Adding Spring Zing to Your Huntsville AL Real Estate

By: Huntsville Real Estate Expert Mike Manosky On April 5, 2013

Yes, the official start of spring has come and gone, but most residents of the United States are still waiting for warner weather and/or a string of sunny days to celebrate the new season.  In spite of the un-spring-like conditions, some flowering shrubs and hearty annuals have been spunky enough to blossom, but a large number of owners of Huntsville AL real estate have questioned the wisdom of planting too early this year.  And yet, we want our yards to be colorful and cheerful as April approaches…

So what to safely plant to proclaim that it is indeed spring at your Huntsville AL real estate holding?  Many flowers can be planted in early spring as soon as the ground is soft enough to work. In some cases, they can even withstand a late freeze. Annual plants/flowers such as pansies, daffodils, forsythia, crocus, snapdragons, snowdrops, and camellias are surprisingly hearty and will give you an instant burst of color.

One way to add bright spots to the landscaping of your Huntsville AL real estate but reduce loss due to springtime frosts is to rely on container gardening, Because of the portability of such gardens, you can bring them in on very cold nights or place them in more protected outside locations.  In addition to the splashes of color provided by your choice of flowers, the containers themselves will add visual interest in terms of color, shape, and texture.  Among favorite container flowers are the prolific calibrachoa, the profuse and forgiving verbena, the cheerful and spritely cape daisy, the enduring bush violet, and the hummingbird and butterfly attracting penta.  Click here for information about each of these flowers or here for even more suggestions.

Another advantage of container gardening is its mobility.  The appearance of decks, porches, front door steps, driveways, and patios is easily enhanced by the addition of colorful flowers in often clever and unusual containers which can be matched with holidays and special occasions.  For ideas and inspiration offers 46 different designs (with photos) using small trees, vegetables, succulents, grasses, and herbs—and all are guaranteed to make you catch your breath.

Remember, too, the allure of garden art, trellises, benches, door wreathes, inlaid mosaic stones, colorful flags, and wind chimes—all things which add real zing to your Huntsville AL real estate!
