Spring is Around the Corner

This has definitely been one of the snowiest winters I can remember, but take heart fellow gardeners, spring is just around the corner! Now is a great time to be planning for spring. It's also a great time to consider a landscape design. Designers are less hurried and often offer winter discounts. Then you'll be ready, when the ground is warm once again, to start digging! I'll be ready to trade in my snow shovel for a trowel that's for sure!

Bubble Wrapped Deer

We thought this was kinda funny. We ordered this decorative deer for one of our clients recently. It's not everyday you receive a giant, bubble wrapped deer with a fragile sticker on it's behind! It was waiting for us just like that when we got home. We got a laugh and wondered what the neighbors thought.

Winter Pots

Okay, admittedly, these photos are a little late for the season! It's always good to plan for next year though right? This is a pot we decorated for some clients. We kept the look natural with a grapevine wreath shaped into a ball as the focal point. We then wrapped it with white lights. The rest is so simple, but classic: fresh mixed greens, some gold twigs, chocolate brown ornaments and a chocolate brown bow (which is hard to see in these photos). We love doing holiday decor here at Olive Branch! We offer container planting and decorating year round, as well as consulting, services and products for larger holiday decor projects (commercial or residential).
