Why Fall is a Great Time to Start your Landscape Architecture Project

Dear friends,

As winter creeps closer, you may be wondering if you missed your chance to plan your landscape architecture project.

But, fall and winter are some of the best seasons to start a new landscape project to enhance the beauty of your home. Rather than rushing to complete your landscape plans for your summer entertainment in the spring, fall and winter are great times to start designing your perfect yard now so you’re ready when the warm weather arrives.

The process of building larger projects, like a pool, could take months to fully complete. If you have plans to swim come the spring, now is the best time to start designing that in-ground pool. Getting your construction done in the winter will ensure you’re enjoying your landscape come summer, not grilling in a construction zone!

Although planting is on hold during the colder months, it’s still the ideal time to connect with a landscape professional to start drawing up designs for outdoor gardens so plans can be implemented in stages and ready when the time is right.

Don’t put off hiring a landscape architect because you think you can’t afford it or it’s not the right timing. Ignoring your landscape is missing an opportunity to not only enjoy your outdoor space, but invest in your most valuable asset.

Best wishes,
Ed Ball
