Warm Weather Leads To Landscaping Rush

May 24, 2014, 5:55 PM by Jared Ransom

Warm Weather Leads To Landscaping Rush
SIOUX FALLS, SD -

With warm weather seemingly here to stay, plenty of people are rushing to take care of any yard work and landscaping projects they've had to put on hold.

The cold weather this spring kept a lot of people out of their yards until now, and businesses like Oak Ridge Nursery in Brandon were prepared for the rush. Weekends like this have the nursery at full staff ready to help a non-stop line of customers hoping to get exactly what they need.

"We had kind of a slow start, but now the weather's finally turned around. Everybody's anxious to get out in the yards, get plants and flowers going, get the gardens now that we should be past any frost state," landscape designer Daemon Coughlin said.

May is typically the busiest month for nurseries like Oak Ridge, but the crowd has grown even bigger this year because of the small transition from cold to warmer temperatures.
