Spring Exterior Plantings!

This Sunday (March 11th) is Daylight Savings and the official day of spring is only 9 days after that!! Although it makes the mornings dark again, I love the light that "springing forward" gives us and I can't wait to have longer and brighter evenings! 

All this talk of Spring makes me so excited for budding trees, flowering bulbs, and the smell of spring rain! Below are just a few samples of some of our stunning spring planting that we have installed (and maintained)!! Take a look at some of our other installs in our Gallery.

Spring is Just Around the Corner!!

Good ol' New England weather always leaves us wondering how many days of winter we really have left! It can be 70 degrees one day and the next expecting snow!! I am looking forward to being able to completely thaw out and enjoy the warmer days outside. As I sit here, still in my winter jacket, I dream of Spring and am enjoying looking at pictures of spring flowers and spring green gardens! 

We can't wait to get our hands back into the soil and planting container gardens for our clients! We'd love to lend a hand in helping you with sprucing up your building with flowering container gardens and lush garden beds. Give us a shout and we'll happily get designing! You can reach us through phone or email, visit our contact page for our information. 

Here are some spring flower container gardens that are inspiring and are making me smile! What do you look forward to most about Spring?!

Why Moss walls?

The demand for moss walls continues to grow! We love these walls because they are so beautiful and inspiring. Moss walls are able to bring artfully curated nature into your office space without it being obtrusive. While they are relatively expensive as an upfront cost they save money due to the fact that they are so low in care and maintenance. Take a look at some of the awesome moss walls that Harding Botanicals offers that can spruce up and enhance your office space or lobby!

2018 Pantone Color of the Year!

2018 Ultra Violet Pantone_Harding Botanicals

"A dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade, PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future.

Complex and contemplative, Ultra Violet suggests the mysteries of the cosmos, the intrigue of what lies ahead, and the discoveries beyond where we are now. The vast and limitless night sky is symbolic of what is possible and continues to inspire the desire to pursue a world beyond our own.

Enigmatic purples have also long been symbolic of counterculture, unconventionality, and artistic brilliance. Musical icons Prince, David Bowie, and Jimi Hendrix brought shades of Ultra Violet to the forefront of western pop culture as personal expressions of individuality. Nuanced and full of emotion, the depth of PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet symbolizes experimentation and non-conformity, spurring individuals to imagine their unique mark on the world, and push boundaries through creative outlets.

Historically, there has been a mystical or spiritual quality attached to Ultra Violet. The color is often associated with mindfulness practices, which offer a higher ground to those seeking refuge from today’s over-stimulated world. The use of purple-toned lighting in meditation spaces and other gathering places energizes the communities that gather there and inspire connection." - Pantone
