Top 10 Spring Must-Haves
Spring is the favorite season for many of us because it signifies renewal and rebirth. When those first crocuses peek through the frost, that little wink of color is just what we need to perk up our senses as we look forward to longer and warmer days.
Get an early start on spring and make the most of the season with easy updates that bring on the color and sunshine even before the shrubs start to bloom.
Start with updates that will get noticed, in-your-face pick me ups in bright colors.
1. Cheerful Spring Wreaths
The front door is a great place to start your spring refresh. It welcomes you and everyone else while giving a hint about your style and personality to neighbors and passers by.
The forsythia is always the first bush to bloom, and our Forsythia Wreath is a reminder that spring is on the way. Faux blooms won’t crumble like dried, and you can enjoy its classic design year after year.
Our gorgeous, handmade Metal Floral Wreath is a confection of color in a finely detailed design, handmade just for us in Bali.
2. Indoor/Outdoor Rugs
Get an instant refresh with colorful accessories that go anywhere, from front porch to kitchen, sunroom and more. Our coordinating hand-hooked polypropylene accents offer great color and cheer, and you can switch them out to match your mood and the seasons. Bonus: they hose clean!
3. Flawless Faux Florals
It’s spring and everything is (not quite) in bloom. A few early bulbs may pop up in March, but the real show won’t begin until later in the season, when most of your flowering bushes, perennials and annuals show their colors.
But why wait?
You can have beautiful blooms right now, in any season, with no effort at all. No watering, no deadheading, no fading. Just plop some of these beautiful Faux Petunias in your favorite planter and enjoy their lustrous color.
Our Faux Grasses add texture and color without shedding. And they look so real!
4. Lush Lighted Accents
Add some trees to your indoor or outdoor landscape. These add height and light anywhere. Place them on your porch, deck or in the foyer and enjoy the flowers and lights while you wait for your natural blooms to open.
Plow & Hearth is headquartered in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains in beautiful Virginia, where Dogwood Trees grow wild in the forests and are planted in yards everywhere. Plant our state flower in your home too!
If you don’t have space for a tree, our battery-operated Lighted Dogwood Branches and Cherry Branch Garland give you that natural feeling on a smaller scale. They can grace any space from your table to mantel, sideboard and beyond.
5. Arbors and Trellises
Every landscape needs a statement piece. It’s easy to do with an Arbor or Trellis. These add height and artistry to your yard or garden entrance, with or without climbing flowers and vines. From wood to metal in simple to ornate designs, let one of these speak to your individual style.
Our unique Arbor Bench provides not only a focal point, but seating as well.
The Montebello Arbor has been a customer favorite for years. You can’t go wrong with its graceful design.
You can also choose designs in wood or durable wooden composite for a natural look.
Trellises can either support vines or stand alone to hide bare spots or simply add decorative flair.
6. Garden Spinners
Our grand and gracious Spinners offer another way to add height and style to your yard. Choose bright or subtle colors, vertical or horizontal movement, even solar options to add interest to your garden after dark.
7. Backyard Birding Accessories
Bring on the birds! Spring is time for the birds to begin building their nests. As they become more active, their cheerful chirping will fill the air, heralding spring’s arrival. Create an environment just for them with birdhouses, feeders and birdbaths they’ll love.
It all starts with the right home. Ours have properly sized openings that fit smaller songbirds such as finches, wrens, chickadees and nuthatches. Ventilation and easy clean-out features ensure optimal health.
Add a splash of color and distinctive design with fun and functional baths. Pick one that suits your style and watch the birds and the complements flock in.
With housing and recreation in place, all you need is a dining establishment to complete your birding paradise. Our menu of different styles includes platforms, mesh and more.
8. Garden Art
Brighten your landscape with statues, accents and fun ideas ranging from cute to quirky and even elegant!
Hide a bare spot or utility item with artistic panels, available in various styles to suit your garden’s theme and colors. Our Sunflower Panels create an outdoor mural with lighted centers on a battery-operated timer. Ready to shine in minutes: just stake into the ground.
Solar Garden Statues add light and whimsy to your yard. There are many styles to choose from, from bunnies to puppies, hedgehogs and more. You’ll enjoy their designs day and night!

10. Perennial Garden Collections
