Many homeowners choose to follow through with their landscape design process during the spring and summer months. However, winter can be one of the best times to hire landscape design services to turn your backyard into a wonderland of sorts. Why consider landscape construction and a backyard remodel during the colder part of the year? Consider the following benefits of designing your backyard for spring but hiring a landscape construction company during the winter.
1. Washington winters are mild
The winter months in Washington can be chilly, but they don’t often get too bad. This means that your landscaping is on display longer throughout the year than you’d think. What’s more is that it enables you to utilize landscape construction in Seattle well into January without worrying about heavy snows.
2. Winter increases availability of landscape design firms
Landscape construction in Seattle, Spokane, and Bellevue can be busy during the warmer months. This isn’t usually a problem, but it’s nice to have a more flexible schedule. Additionally, getting your landscape project done in the winter puts you ahead of the competition.
3. Winter shock is better than spring shock.
When flowers are transported from one place to another and replanted during landscape construction in Seattle, they often experience what’s called “shock.” Shock is often caused by changes in the soil or the climate. Flowers wilt and discolor as a result of shock. This makes winter an ideal time to replant your flowers and ease them through the shock so they’re beautiful and ready to bloom come spring.
There are multiple landscape design options such as outdoor kitchens, patio designs, and water features. Starting a larger project during the winter gives you more time to finish it and enjoy your finished project come spring. Homeowners often believe that landscape design projects and revamping their space are best left for the warmer seasons. Up to 64% of homeowners who choose to upgrade their landscaping make changes to their backyards. However, just because it’s a little colder outside doesn’t mean you should put a hold on your landscape architecture and construction. Consider giving a landscape designer a call this holiday season. You’ll be happy with the leg up you receive come spring.
