The hot summer weather is cooling off. But it’s still comfortable weather to get outdoors with a landscaping contractor and start designing your outdoor living space for next year. Why landscape in the off-season, you ask? Here’s a list of benefits to consider.
- Hire a landscaping contractor now for next season
If you spent the beginning of the spring season calling landscaping contractors, chances are likely the good ones were already booked up. But getting ahead of the pack by calling landscaping contractors now means you’ll have a better chance of hiring the first contractor on your list because you’ve booked them in advance.
My recommendation? Contact a minimum of three landscaping contractors, get three separate quotes for your project, and call their references.
- Time is on your side
Coming up with a landscaping design takes time. Between having a landscaping contractor visit your house to see your space, to sketching out a plan that meets your budget and lifestyle needs. You won’t feel pressured to settle on a design because the warm weather is arriving.
- Take advantage of savings and discount
If you spend your fall season working with a landscape contractor, you could cash in on some savings! Some landscaping vendors will offer designs/sketches at off-peak prices because the season is quieter than the spring when designs are in full demand. . Most contractors have to sell off their inventory before the cool weather is here to stay, so they can offer discounts. You can transform your home and save at the same time!
- Save up for the landscaping design you want saving money
The benefit to planning your landscaping plans in the fall means you’ll have more time to save money for the landscape renovation since the project won’t be starting for another several months. Of course, starting your design early also means you have leeway to change it as you see fit. It also gives the landscaping contractors you’ve hired time to adjust the plans. After all, they won’t be purchasing plants right away!
Relax and Enjoy the outdoors next year!!!
