Seasonal Flowers will add color and beauty to any or back yard. Red Carpet Landscaping offers seasonal flowers and planting programs for residential and commercial clients in Darien, Stamford and Greenwich.
Annual flowers can provide landscaped areas with more seasonal variety and colorful accents than most other plants. Seasonal color can have more impact on the landscape than any other design element. However, nothing has a more negative impact than a poorly designed or maintained color area. At Red Carpet Landscaping, we can help you choose the right seasonal flower varieties and stunning color combinations for your landscape. We know when it is the best time of the year to plant specific annuals. We can properly prepare the soil with appropriate organic matter and plant the flowers where they will thrive in their new environment. We can plant the flowers ensuring proper drainage as needed by the specific plants which you have selected. Our professional landscapers are available to plant trees and shrubs in your lawn. We can also change out flowerbeds, hanging baskets, planters and window boxes with seasonal flowers. If you want to plant a vegetable or herb garden, we can help with this too.
Grow in the summer months, April – frost. The foliage should be cutback to the ground, then mulch should be placed over the root zone to protect the roots from extreme winter cold. Hardy perennials will come back year after year. With proper care they provide a colorful display of flowers and foliage.
Perennial plants require less fertilization than annual flowers. Fertilize 2 -3 times per year with a complete fertilizer such as 10-10-10 or a liquid fertilizer may be used more often.
By having us schedule your residence, community, or commercial property with routine seasonal flower bed installations, you will always have something in bloom and adding color, texture, and visual interest to your landscape.
Offer color into the landscape for a period of 2 to 4 weeks. Daffodil bulbs will naturalize in the landscape and repeat blooming, year after year. Bulbs are planted only in the fall of the year and produce spring blooms. Tulips are planted in the fall, bloom in the spring, and very seldom repeat bloom. Tulips should be removed from seasonal color beds when summer annuals are installed in the spring. Soil preparation for bulbs will include tilling, soil amendments, and fertilization to insure a successful program. Foliage from bulbs can be removed when it begins to show stress and discoloration. Repeat bloomers should be fertilized each year to insure growth from year to year. A 2”-3” mulch layer should be kept in bulb beds.
