When the cold weather hits and your yard is covered in snow and ice, landscaping is probably the furthest thing from your mind. After all, what’s the point of starting a landscape project now when you won’t be able to use it or even start building for months?
Outdoor planning in the industry’s slow season is a great strategy for nabbing some good deals and assuring your pick of the best landscaping company in the area. When you consider these advantages along with the reasons below, you’re going to find yourself dreaming of your summer backyard as you’re putting your Thanksgiving turkey in the oven!
1) Landscaping takes a lot of preparation.
Bringing the vision you have for your yard to life is going to take a lot of time and resources. To achieve the best results, you need to plan out every detail and determine what you need to make it happen before you get started. If you start this process in the winter, you’ll have plenty of time to get the best supplies, coordinate with your landscape contractor, and obtain any permits you need.
2) Start with a blank canvas.
In the winter, your yard is basically a clean slate! It’s free of vegetation/foliage and any furniture or features you pull out of the garage in the spring. This is a great opportunity for you to visualize a fresh design and get a more accurate idea of the space you have to work with.
3) Get more use out of your outdoor space.
If you have your supplies, master plan, and project schedule ready to go by the time the warm weather hits, you’ll maximize the use you get from your outdoor space in the upcoming season. Spend less time waiting for your project to be completed when the weather is ideal for using it! Start planning out your landscape in winter and it’ll be finished in time to throw a killer party to kick off the summer.
