Spring Thaw and the Explosion of Color (in Decking, Railing and…Plant Life)

In my St. Patrick’s Day post here, I discussed the broad spectrum of colors available in the wood-alternative world of decking and railing.  This discussion will tie back to that again (refer back if you want)…without the green beer.

With the Spring Thaw comes the explosion of colors in plant life.  The grass is getting greener by the day (mowers are anxiously awaiting).  Daffodils and hyacinths are sprouting and will soon show their yellows and blues.  Tulips of all colors won’t be far behind (and our trips to Pella’s Tulip Days).  Magnolia and Crab Apple trees will explode with their white, pink and purple hues.  The older I get, the more I enjoy the renewal associated with Spring. 

With the Spring Thaw comes a promotion by the Des Moines Register that we are participating in this week…and beyond.  Details will be in the March 28th Des Moines Sunday Register; look for savings, coupons and special offers from local businesses focusing on outdoor products.  Check the Special Offers section of our web site for our specials.  In addition, the Des Moines Register is offering a Spring Thaw Sweepstakes for a chance to win a $100 gift card to a participating Spring Thaw retailer…like us.  You can enter the sweepstakes on the Register’s web site; be sure to select “Archadeck” as your Retailer Choice.

With the Spring Thaw promotion comes our incentive to “renew” our showroom a bit.  Two reasons for this:

  • The explosion of colors available in the wood-alternative world of decking and railing over the past 2 years since we opened our showroom has been significant (see March 17th blog post).  We need to (and will…this week) update our layout and displays to better reflect what we’re doing now in the real backyards and front porches around Central Iowa.  Which is a real challenge; just this morning I received notice that TimberTech has announced a new XLM color, Rustic Bark, available in May (and maybe in our showroom sooner…we’re working on that).
    • As a result, our showroom will be closed (for remodeling) Tuesday thru Thursday the week of March 28th
  • For this Spring Thaw promotion, our renewed showroom, with fresh spring colors, will be open 9am – 8pm on Friday and Saturday, April 2nd and 3rd for your convenience.  You’re invited to stop in this weekend to see the latest – and I do mean “latest” – in outdoor living designs and materials and learn more about our design/build services and product recommendations.  If this weekend doesn’t work for you, give us a call and we’ll be glad to schedule a time for you to come at a later date.

Enjoy the Spring Thaw.  Start living outside.
