Yes, it’s a trite cliché. But here in North Central Texas, it seems like Spring. Not technically of course, that’s not supposed to happen until Saturday, March 20, at 5:37 A.M. EDT, and today is only the 11th.
But temperatures are in the 70’s. In fact, as I write this, it’s almost 80 degrees. The robins are out and some trees are starting to bud. Seems like Spring to me.
At this time of year, especially on sunny and beautiful warm days like this, people start thinking outside. Landscaping renovation and rejuvenation rises to the top of the weekend chore list.
So, we run to the home improvement and gardening stores and we buy fertilizer and new plants and everything we need to prepare spring for summer.
Yes, it’s a lot of work. There’s the cleaning of the beds, the trimming of lawns and bushes, and all that fertilizing and weed prevention that needs to be done. Then we water the lawn or wait for the inevitable spring rains, and smile. It’s going to look beautiful; we think. And we’re right. It will look beautiful.
In the landscape lighting business, we love this time of year. It gives us a chance to visit with last year’s customers and make sure the winter (which got to be pretty harsh where we are for a short time) didn’t damage existing lighting.
But even more importantly, we can anticipate all that landscaping and bed rejuvenation and new planting. Your landscape IS going to look beautiful. And we want to be part of that.
Why not light it? Why not show it off to your neighbors and anyone who might be driving by at dusk or on their way to work before the sun comes out? Don’t you want everyone to appreciate all the work (and expense) you’ve put into that landscape?
Once you see your beautiful landscape lit up properly at night, you’ll be thrilled. That’s a promise.
