It's a great time to reflect on the path you want to take - in life, & as well with what you want your property to become as an expression of you & as a sanctuary for you & your family. Are you on track? Are you being true to your heart's direction or simply keeping up with the Jones so to speak.

Express yourself! Add some sparkle to your property! Firepits, water features, gathering places for family, night lighting for stretching your outdoor opportunities, fall colour plantings & adding art touches to evoke emotions.... the list can go on & on & on.

As summer comes to a close & the lessons are fresh it is an optimal time to move forward. If you put it off until spring often those ideas are lost or the frenzy of spring construction can interfere. There's no time like the "present"- it's really a gift!

This is just a gentle reminder to all of us to simply smell the roses- enjoy the pleasurable moments, the small gifts, & most especially the awareness of all the good things we have in life. That is especially so here in West Grey/Southgate- it is such a beautiful place! And yet is so easy to get wound up or drawn into life's dramas, world happenings or the needs of business & these can totally take over.

Taking time to place your awareness on the beauty, wellness, wealth & privileges we DO HAVE rather than shortcomings , will enhance onc's awareness & thus happiness. It's a choice as to where one places their attention & the position one chooses to adopt on any situation- chose to look for the good! It really works! We have control only of ourselves

Chose to spend some time in the garden, in nature & do the things that are uniquely YOU! You'll be happier for it & we all benefit!

As of JUNE 1st we are operating out of north SOUTHGATE & Belwood communities so our service area is changing slightly.

We will now concentrate on areas in between such as Southgate, Shelburne, Orangeville, Fergus, Mt.Forest, Grand Valley, & areas within reach where we find those irresistible creativity opportunities for really great folks!

With the move comes a quantum leap in creativity, good energy, & desire to make a difference. We're becoming more interested in stretching the design boundaries, adding a spiritual nature & greening up!!!

SPRING RENEWAL ART SHOW - Sun., April 2 (only a fool would do it April 1st :)) -abstracts, nature scenes & more, Inglewood (south Caledon) to be confirmed

As of the first day of spring we are officially starting to break ground. While designs have been ongoing for a while, the weather has been steadily improving & earlier than usual! We're under way Monday in Caledon Village with our first great project in our new region for some really great people...we think all our clients are wonderful!

We'll be flagstoning a porch & have a completely updated look for the front entrance of a home.

What we're after is an uplifting, lush fel that marries with the existing architecture of the house & of course suits our clients tastes. We'll be introducing banded Unilocking reating wall & paving patterns, a small refreshing water feature , elegant 12v lighting & intending on bringing smiles to all.

We believe that the ability to enjoy something comes primarily from within a person. No amount of home renovation or landscaping by anyone can achieve happiness for a person - that comes from a predisposition or intended growth toward of happiness allowing someone to recognize a good thing. One cannot make another be happy, but we can build in triggers to remind ourselves to chose happiness & those triggers we're in search of in our designs, our process & implementation...

Can you believe this weather? Wow! We are starting earlier than ever before. It appears that we will be well under way starting as soon as March Break ! Some have gotten the message & are getting under way.

Perhaps this will mean a longer growing season for plants as well. More than likely, additional pruning measures will be a good idea this season. Pruning not only stimulates new growth, it is a terrific way to make your landscape last longer with plants retaining form a lot longer & avoiding disease as well. It can be an excellent time to prune plants before the foliage masks underlying issues. Often you can get stronger healthier growth with taking action now.

With two designs completed & about 5 more jobs/designs to give attention to it's been getting busier!

It sure is nice looking through various pictures of beautiful green grass, flowers, & really neat design ideas.

I certainly appreciate the snow, winter wonderland atmospheres & the ice on all the branches was really exceptional,but the anticipation of spring is growing my excitement! It is projected to be plus temperatures in about a week & from then onward for the most part, so we may be starting earlier than ever before

Enjoy your weekend & stay in the MOMENT!

Dave ;)

While there is never any pressure with dezignwerx.ca , just a word to the wise. Everybody is booking up now for those prime spring spots. No matter who you talk to, if they are a repuatable company, they are most likely busy as anything! Occassionally smaller projects can be fit in & sometimes jobs do get bumped around. In our case we are in a new location & restarting so to speak, but already it is looking to be a record year.

It's great to get the ball rolling now as we are only about 3 weeks until spring & it has been an exceptionally mild winter which translates into opportunity to commence a bit early, but still it's wise to get rolling now...

As a counter point, it is also important not to rush or feel rushed. This isn't something you're likely to hear elsewhere, but it is so true. Rushing equates to fear which means somebody or something is going to get rushed or out of the happiness zone shall we say. That's no good. In our books enjoyment IS the key!

Towards that enjoyment, it's a great time to enjoy the colourful, warm, rejuvenating aspects of spring - we're nearly there!!!
