Is one of your New Year’s resolutions to have a beautiful yard? It may still be winter, but now is the time to start planning for your spring and summer landscaping projects. Most landscaping companies are slow during the winter months, making it the perfect time to get a consultation and start designing the yard of your dreams. There are several benefits to beginning your landscaping plans now, instead of waiting until the busy spring and summer seasons:
- Have a plan. Starting early gives you time to plan out what you want done, and when. Certain projects need to be done at different times of the year, such as planting trees or laying new sod. Sit down with your landscape designer and create a plan of action for the next few months.
- Distributing cost. Instead of having a large landscaping bill all in one or two months, spread out your projects over several months. This can help you stay within your budget, and make the total cost easier to absorb.
- Winter rates. You may be able to get a better rate or price on some items during the off-season. Talk to your landscape supplier or designer about what items are better to buy or have done during the winter, versus the spring or summer.
- Have your projects done by summer. Instead of spending your summer doing landscape projects, why not plan to sit back and enjoy them? Starting early can give you the opportunity to have everything in place for that first big backyard party on Memorial Day weekend.
Make 2015 the summer that your yard is the envy of the neighborhood! Resolve to get your landscaping projects started now, and beat the springtime rush.
