Winter is the Ideal Time for Homeowners to Plan Their New Landscape Design
Although Toronto and the GTA has certainly experienced less snowfall to date this winter than over similar periods in previous years, temperatures have still been sufficiently cold to keep people indoors most of the time. Other than the occasional times spent clearing away whatever amount of snow may have fallen on their driveways and sidewalks, most area residents are likely not lingering about their properties very long.
But this does not mean that they should ignore their properties completely while they sit huddled in front of the fireplace; the warmth of that fire should actually trigger thoughts about the warmer weather of spring and summer, which in turn should lead to visions of how their property will look when the snow is gone and the trees and plants are again in bloom.
In fact, winter would be the ideal time to start planning a new landscape design; not just for the homeowner, but also for the residential landscaping company that will eventually be contracted to do the work. Reputable landscape services providers, such as the team from Landcare, will be in demand by Toronto and area property owners once the spring arrives, so initiating the design stage during the cold-weather months will offer sufficient time for the homeowner to address the following:
- Obtaining multiple quotes
- Finalizing contractor selection
- Approving the landscape design
- Confirming the earliest start date possible
- Arranging any financing that may be required
- Securing any and all necessary building permits
- Purchasing all materials in advance of the project start date
Transforming any property requires considerable thought and planning before the project can even begin. Using the so-called downtime or idle time of winter to address this part of the overall process would not only help to lessen any cold-weather blues but also give the homeowner an edge with respect to the following:
- Securing their preferred contractor
- Securing their preferred timing/scheduling
- More time post-build to enjoy their new landscape design
