Hoosiers have been designing and planting their gardens earlier this year because of the mild winter and warm spring.

The mild winter and hot spring so far is ringing up early business for Hoosier landscapers. Some say landscaping season which normally kicks off the first week of April, began almost a month ago.

Gabriel Gluesenkamp of Gluesenkamp‘s Designscape Horticultural Services in Nashville says business has been great. Gluesenkamp says planting season began way early this year. He says flowering trees have been blooming early and his firm has been busy landscaping and planting when they might normally be plowing snow around this time.

“The first of April is really when we start receiving a lot of consultation requests for design and that started, the phone have been ringing off the hook for the past week which is way earlier than normal,” he says.

Gluesenkamp says ordinarily they would begin design consultations in a couple of weeks, but they‘re currently working full jobs now. And most businesses don‘t turn on their irrigation systems until May, but that‘s already happening.

Frost is still a possibility until Easter, something Gluesenkamp is hoping doesn‘t happen. He adds that even though landscaping season has begun early, it‘s too early to say how business will be affected long term. He says the weather will determine that.
