Now is the Time to Plan a New Landscape Design for Your Residential Property
Most residential property owners would probably admit that landscaping is not a top-of-mind subject during the winter season. This should not be that much of a surprise, since any notions of landscaping are often associated with the warmer times of the year when amateur gardeners and professional crews can physically work around a property.
Granted, property owners might, over the winter, go to the extent of casually expressing their thoughts on what they should do in terms of gardening and landscaping once the spring arrives. And while this thought process may be admirable in its own right, it can also engender a lack of planning, last-minute decision-making, and perhaps even total procrastination when the time comes to actually get down to work – all of which can result in accepting/settling for landscaping that falls short of its potential.
The transformation of a property requires a substantial investment of time for both the design and the build stages. There are many factors that must be considered before the first shovelful of earth can be turned, so to speak, as residential property owners must make decisions on and/or allow time for all of the following:
- Initial landscape design
- Refinements and final approval
- Choosing what to plant/transplant
- Budgeting or securing any financing
- Obtaining municipal permits as needed
- Ordering construction materials (wood, stone)
- Scheduling crews and the project start/end dates
These are all viable reasons to use the so-called downtime of the winter season to one’s advantage; yes, winter would be an opportune time to collaborate with the designers of a landscaping contractor such as Landcare.
