However, now is the perfect time to start planning your landscape projects. Here are three reasons why winter is the best time for planning landscaping projects.

1. It Gives you Ample Time to Plan

Planning landscaping projects in the winter will give you time to gather everything together and not rush in the spring. You’ll need time to:

Tip: If the weather is mild and cooperates, some contractors may be able to complete your project over the winter so that you may enjoy it come spring. Ask your contractor about the possibility of winter projects.

2. Beat the Rush

As the early spring approaches, landscape companies receive a flood of calls from homeowners seeking their services. However, getting ahead of the crowd and contacting a landscape company during the winter can put you at the front line.

Winter is often a quieter period for landscapers, meaning you’ll have more flexibility in setting up appointments and meetings. It will give you ample time to discuss your landscaping projects in detail. By planning ahead in the winter, you’ll position yourself to select the ideal landscape company that perfectly suits your needs and preferences. So don’t wait until the rush hits. Take advantage of the winter season to secure your spot and ensure a seamless and enjoyable landscaping experience in the early spring.

3. Spot the Trouble Areas

While it doesn’t look its best in winter, your property will reveal itself over the winter. Planning landscaping projects in the winter gives you a great opportunity to spot trouble areas. It’s easy to forget about trouble spots when it’s sunny and hasn’t rained as much. Looking carefully during the off-season handles things like:

  • Rain, Snow, or Freeze-Thaw Cycles
  • Run-off
  • Drainage
  • Irrigation
