Is Winter a Good Time to Think About Landscaping Projects?
Is Now the Time to Think About Your Garden?
Happy Holidays, everyone! We're getting deep into December and signs of the holidays are all around us. There is plenty on our mind with family, events, and tasty treats. And while we're cozied up in front of a crackling fireplace or curled up with our favorite winter book on the iPad, making changes to our outdoor living spaces are usually pretty far from our thoughts. But - this is actually a great time to start thinking about landscaping.
Plenty of Time to Plan
It doesn't matter if you want to completely re-do your yard or do touch-ups, there are always a lot of decisions to ponder: Designs, colors, or maybe wondering if this is the year to build that outdoor fireplace you have always wanted. By starting on the earlier side, even with taking your time to choose exactly what is right for you, your project will be done earlier. That way you can enjoy your new space this Spring and Summer!
You can be Choosy
The closer we get to Spring, the more local contractors and landscape contractors book up. By starting earlier, you can avoid that rush (once again helping you enjoy your new garden longer!) as well have the time to interview and choose the contractors that you feel the most comfortable with (complimentary personalities make for the best construction experiences).
Winter really is a great time to start thinking about your home and landscaping. So, go ahead, sip that cup of hot cocoa in front of the fire -- and start dreaming about how beautiful you can make your back yard.
