With the new year comes a fresh start and the perfect opportunity to transform your outdoor living space into your very own oasis. While January’s chilly breeze might make you want to stay cozy inside, it’s actually the ideal time to kickstart your landscape design project. Here’s why getting a jump on your outdoor renovations now can pay off in lush, leisurely dividends by summer.

The Early Bird Catches the Worm

Scheduling Your On-Site Consultation

In the quieter months of January and February, landscape designers’ calendars are more open, allowing for prompt and personalized consultation appointments. This timely beginning ensures that your project doesn’t just become another number in the peak season rush. Waiting until spring might mean competing for attention, as designers’ schedules fill up 4-8 weeks in advance.

Securing Your Spot

Choosing a design and build firm early in the year not only means securing an initial consultation but also getting a detailed proposal within weeks. This early commitment translates into a secured spot on the construction schedule, offering peace of mind that your landscape will transform before your eyes in time for the winter holiday season.

Conversely, beginning your project with a landscape-only designer or freelancer during the warmer months could set you on an extended design trajectory of 8-12 weeks, post which the search for a construction team begins. Unfortunately, by late spring, most reputable contractors’ schedules are packed, pushing your project completion possibly into the next year.

The Advantages of Swift Action

  1. Peace of Mind: Knowing your project is slotted for completion allows for a stress-free experience, offering more time for anticipation rather than anxiety.
  2. Maximized Enjoyment: Initiating your project in January means you could be enjoying your new outdoor space by the time summer sunsets roll around, rather than watching the season pass by amidst construction.
  3. Cost Efficiency: With demand for landscape contractors lower in the early months, there may be more room for negotiation and better rates than during the peak season rush.
  4. Thoughtful Planning: The extra lead time allows for a more thoughtful, detailed, and collaborative design process, ensuring no rushed decisions that you might regret later.
  5. Optimized Growth: Planting in the earlier parts of the year gives new plantings time to establish themselves and flourish throughout the growing season, providing a fuller, more vibrant landscape by summer’s end.
