weber4At the moment, I am gazing angrily glaring out my window at a blanket of snow, with more due to fall for the remainder of the day and into tomorrow morning. Even so: I’m eagerly looking ahead to warmer temps, those first crunches of shovel blade into thawing earth – turning over the garden beds, and the start of spring!

Just because everything is frozen over doesn’t mean we can’t dream a little, right? In fact – cold days that keep us mostly-indoors are the perfect opportunity to draw up those garden plans that we won’t have time for once things heat up in March.

For anyone who was not aware, 4 Seasons Lawn Care does custom-built garden bed frames for those who understand the benefits of raised bed gardening.

Remove existing landscaping. Remove excess mulch. Dig a fresh edge along walkway.


Dig holes for new shrubs, and cover the whole bed with landscaping fabric. Then cut the fabric away to reveal the holes beneath.

Make a mud-hole! Partially fill the hole with a combination of native topsoil and compost. Soak and mix with shovel until it has the consistency of mixed concrete.

Install shrubs and cover beds with 4″ of root or hardwood mulch.
