However, now is the perfect time to start planning your landscape projects. Here are three reasons that the 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

Every year, landscape companies get bombarded with calls in the early spring from homeowners. Contacting a landscape company in the winter will help you get to the front of the line. With more openings on their calendar, it’ll be easier to set up appointments and meetings with the companies. By planning landscaping projects in the winter, you’ll be in a great position to choose the company you want.

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 it hasn’t rained as much. Looking carefully during the off-season handles things like:

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