In the midst of winter, it’s hard to imagine that there is such a thing called the “January Thaw”. With its beginnings in New England folklore, the January Thaw is a string of days, usually around the 19th-28th, that are unseasonably warmer than usual. It is the winter equivalent to Indian’s Summer in the autumn. While the thaw does not occur every year because of fickle and changing weather patterns, almost every January has at least a few days when this happens.
With Spring only a few months away, it is the time of the year when our friends and clients are poring over seed and plant catalogs and dreaming of any additions or improvements to their yardscapes. Getting a head start on planning now will let you enjoy every precious minute outdoors later! Are you uncertain on where to start and need some design inspiration?
