Fall Flower Installation

With the changing seasons comes new flowers for the properties we maintain. The fall flower mix is predominately pansies because they survive the (mild) South Carolina winter and provide a nice splash of color during the cooler months. The flowers arrive in large flats on a truck from our supplier. Here is one delivery waiting in our nursery.
After the summer flowers are removed and the soil is prepared for new flowers, our crews carefully position the pansies and accent plants. Here Dusty Miller has been planted and the holes for pansies have been punched.
Once the bed is prepared, the installation goes surprisingly fast.
Installing a large bed requires many hands.
Although the new flowers are smaller than those they are replacing, it won't take long before they're flourishing.
