Gearing Up For Spring

Even though it just started getting cold, preparations are already well under way for the spring season. In October, some dated plant material was removed from the south entrance bed to make way for some new plant material and an updated look. All part of gradually updating the landscape beds around the club. As you can see from the photos, the removal of Boxwoods, Euonymus, and other material, we were left with a great space and blank canvas to add some new plants to compliment the building and surrounding areas.

Also as the colder weather sets in, it's time to start planting spring time bulbs. Last year, 4,000 Tulip bulbs were planted. This year we have doubled that amount. With a combination of Tulips, Daffodils, Hyacinths, and Galanthus, roughly 8,000 bulbs will be planted this year. Sure to be an explosion of color and scents come spring time around the clubhouse grounds.

Enjoy the winter months and keep an eye out in the spring for many new plants.
