Think Ahead: Start Planning Your Spring Landscaping Project Over The Winter

spring landscaping

Most homeowners don’t tend to think too much about their landscaping once the winter descends on the area. They are quite content to clean up the yard, winterize their existing landscaping features, and wait until the following spring to make improvements or changes. However, winter is actually the best time to begin planning spring landscaping projects. Here are a few reasons why.

Landscaping Projects Take Time

With a space as large as your backyard, your landscaping designer will need some time to carefully assess your property and design a landscape that is best for your aesthetic needs. Winter is typically a down time for landscaping design, so landscaping companies like TDH Landscaping are more easy to reach. The extra time afforded by the winter season allows for any design revisions or transformations that may come up without impacting the timeline of the actual project. Once spring returns, your project can be completed on schedule so you can start enjoying it as soon as possible!

Get a Head Start on the Permit Process

Building permits are a necessity in many jurisdictions before any construction or landscaping project can begin. And many homeowners can attest to the length it can take some offices to issue permits. During the spring, the average wait time for a permit can be anywhere from four to six weeks because of the sheer quantity of applications. Applying for a permit during the winter, however, avoids this busy season and will most likely expedite the process. Plus, you’ll have your permit in hand and ready to go when the weather starts warming up, so your spring landscaping project can begin earlier!

Get on the Schedule

Once spring weather starts, landscape designers like TDH Landscaping have around the first two months of their schedule already filled up. Starting the planning process in the winter allows for you to get on the early portion of the schedule as your landscape designer can begin securing the necessary materials for your project prior to the construction start date.
