5 Reasons to Start Designing Your Spring Landscape Now

If you’re like many people, you’re tired of winter and ready for spring. That’s all the more reason to start thinking about your spring landscaping. Why wait? Design your spring landscape now, and you’ll be prepared once the ground thaws and the clouds lift.

  • Your yard takes up a lot of space. If you look at the yard as an extension of your home, it’s the biggest room in the house. If you were going to redecorate a room, you’d take your time to establish a plan, wouldn’t you? There’s no reason you shouldn’t take the same type of care when you’re landscaping. Consider hiring a professional landscape designer to help you create a design that works with your home’s architecture.
  • During the winter months, you have time to think about priorities. Consider your budget and your list of ideas, prioritizing your list of thoughts in order to stretch the budget. What are your family’s current needs? Will they change any time soon? Establish a loose idea of your wishes and a solid sense of your budget before you enlist the help of a professional.
  • It’s smart to start early because makeovers take time. It will take time to create a plan, particularly if you’re communicating that plan with a designer. When you start in the off-season, you have time to plan, even if you need to modify that plan. What’s more, landscape designers are more accessible in the winter when it’s not as busy, so you’ll have a better opportunity for personal attention.
  • Sometimes, outdoor makeovers require permits. Permits can take a while to be processed: the average is 4-6 weeks. Because you’ll need your permits approved before you can begin any kind of construction, it’s smart to apply well in advance of when you plan to complete your project.
  • Schedules are more open in the winter. Your pace is probably slower, giving you more time to make decisions, and as noted, landscape designers have more time. What’s more, when you give advanced notice to the professionals who can make your vision a reality, you’re more likely to get the plum spots on their spring schedules.
