A well-landscaped property has the potential to boost your mental health and create a welcoming vibe for your guests. Starting a new landscaping project is an exciting process, but starting at the right time is key to preventing unwanted stress. So when exactly is the best time to start a landscaping project?

If you ask us, we say the earlier the better! Shooting to get your landscaping project finished by late winter/early spring means you can spend your entire summer ogling at the beauty of a job well done. Rather than stressing about an unsightly mess, you and your guests can admire the finished product.

Let’s go over the benefits of starting your landscaping project early and how to go about doing so when the days are still chilly.

The Benefits of Starting Early

Depending on the size of your desired project, the process can take weeks or even months. However, if you start the process of planning and hiring contractors early, you can decrease the timeline and save a lot of stress in the process.

Although DFW nights can fall below freezing, daytime temperatures give you a leg up as winters are generally mild in the area. Because of this, work can be done year-round here. You don’t need to worry about harsh winter storms messing up your project timeline unless we experience an unusual weather pattern.

With that said, winter tends to be a slower season in general for landscapers which means you are far more likely to get on our books for the timeline you desire if you hire during late winter. All in all, if your goal is to enjoy your home to the fullest during the summer, getting your landscaping projects finished and out of the way early is your best bet.

What Can You Do in Winter?

Although winter may not seem like the time to start summer landscaping projects, it’s actually on the contrary. Late winter is the best time to begin the planning and hiring process. When it comes to planning out your project, doing so early means that when it’s time to meet with your contractors, you have a clear plan for them to follow.

A clear plan also means your contractors can give you an accurate timeline for when they expect to finish the project. Accurate timelines are important when it comes to hiring the best possible contractor for the job. 

In general, it’s best to hire your contractors during late winter as spring-fall is the busy season. Reaching out early is also recommended as landscaping has seen far more interest lately due to the pandemic and everyone spending more time in their home.
