It’s Almost Landscaping Season in Calgary

Plant Big Trees for Calgary’s Short Growing Season

We have just come from The Horticultural Society’s Garden Show, where our sister company, Larchwood Nurseries had a booth.

The weather was uncooperative to say the least – it was cold and trying to snow on Saturday, and by Sunday we had a solid 2 or 3″ of the white stuff on the ground.  To get to the show visitors had to navigate a mixture of slush and ice on Calgary’s roads, so thank goodness Calgary gardeners are a determined and intrepid lot!

It was a great show with lots of excitement about Spring, which will surely arrive eventually.

As always we’re very excited about Larchwood Nurseries‘ trees which are grown right here in Alberta in root control bags.  Using this unique growing method they’re able to grow large, healthy trees that have just an 18″ rootball and weigh only about 130lb.  That’s light enough to pick in a 1/2 ton and plant without the use of machinery.

We use Larchwood’s trees in our own landscape design and construction projects whenever possible because they’re large enough to create instant impact in a yard.  Our clients love the fact that they establish quickly and are easy to look after.

If you would like to see the trees available from Larchwood Nurseries, visit their website at www.larchwoodnurseries.ca.
