Spring and summer are often considered gardening and landscaping season. And for good reason. It’s easy to see the fruits of your labor pretty quickly in the bursts of colors. But did you know you can do a landscape renovation, or even minor lawn refreshening, during the fall and winter months? And not only can you, here are four amazing reasons why you should.
Reason 1: Perfect Weather for Your Landscape Renovation
Not only are the crisp autumn mornings, warm afternoons and beautiful evenings ideal for enjoying landscape renovation work, your plants will love it too! Soil temperatures hold a steady, ideal temperature, allowing firm and healthy roots to develop. New plants also require less watering when planted in the fall or winter because the hot summer sun isn’t depleting them of their nutrients.
Reason 2: More Affordable
Fall and winter months are considered off-season. This means not only are the costs of the materials such as some new plants more affordable, the costs associated with professional landscape companies may decrease. Off-season sometimes means less work. In order to keep their staff working, companies may offer a discount.
Reason 3: More Time to Finish Your Landscape Renovation
Not every landscape refresh can be completed in a day or even in a weekend. By starting in the fall, you can take advantage of a less busy season and complete the project at your leisure. Then, when spring finally does come around, the workload is lessened and you can fully enjoy the fruits of your labor. Just imagine actually enjoying the beauty surrounding your home as the daylight stretches longer. When you’re home from work, whether in the evening or on the weekend, you have more time to relax instead of more work.
Reason 4: More Availability
If you are considering a large-scale renovation, that means hiring companies and pulling permits. By using non-peak months, you improve your ability to have permits approved more quickly and get the landscaping company you want. They will also be more able to focus on the timely completion of your project.So instead of halting the garden and hibernating, enjoy the cooler temperatures and keep a steady hand to the garden. (Slow and steady always wins in the fairy tales, at least…)
