Off-Season is the Best Time to Plan Landscape Projects

Even though we’re in the middle of winter with snow piled high and freezing temperatures, the off-season is the best time to start thinking about your upcoming landscape projects.

It might be hard to wrap your head around the idea of spring with budding flowers and grass turning green, but it’s a great opportunity to plan out your landscape design from the comfort of your home.

Like any good future project, you’ll have the time to plan and carefully consider what you want to accomplish for your landscaping venture.

Here are three good reasons to begin planning in the off-season for your landscape project.

Time to Plan for Spring Landscaping

By planning ahead now, the actual process of implementing your landscape project will be less stressful since you’ve already done your homework and worked out your plan. To realize your landscape vision requires planning with a design and the most critical step is getting your ideas down on paper. Now is the ideal time to think about what you want for the final dream.

No matter how you envision your property, you need plenty of time to review the small details, so planning cannot be rushed. Whether you’re considering adding a serenity corner overflowing with a water feature, adding a backyard patio, deck, outside kitchen or even a pool, winter is the opportune time for you to really think about what you want and how to tackle it. You want to have the time to dream, sketch, research and determine how everything will work together and budget accordingly.

Planning in off season allows you lots of time to look at design layouts, features, and materials. Thus, you won’t feel like you’re being rushed into making decisions. You also get time to compare costs if you happen to decide on a feature that is a bit more expensive than you originally thought.

Easier to Find a Landscape Designer

If you wait until the spring crocuses come up, finding a landscape contractor will be challenging. If you wait to meet with a contractor during peak season, you may discover that there are few booking options and it might not be until the season is almost over before a work crew can arrive at your home.
