Most commonly, landscaping and hardscaping projects are undertaken in the spring and summer seasons. For landscaping, this makes sense—in areas that experience a true winter, the ground will harden and become difficult to work with in the winter. In addition, most plants and trees become dormant during these months, so there isn’t much reason to plant new greenery. On the other hand, many hardscaping projects can still be completed during the fall and winter months, even after the first frost. There are a few particular benefits to taking advantage of this and having your hardscaping done in the fall or winter.
One of the reasons it’s best to do hardscaping projects in the fall and winter is that these are slow seasons for professional landscaping companies. As the weather grows colder, many people turn their attention away from outdoor projects and start working on getting their home interior ready for the holidays—exterior work is often limited to winterizing and holiday decorating. During these slower seasons, there are still plenty of hardscaping projects that can be completed, such as fire pit installs, walkways, driveways, and stairs. The work can get started and completed much faster when you’re not fighting for priority over other clients. It also means the company can offer you more personal attention and get your project done perfectly down to the finest detail.
When you have a hardscaping project done during the spring or summer months, it hinders your ability to enjoy your outdoor living space. As we are all often aware, construction is noisy and messy—it makes it difficult to be in the immediate area without some level of discomfort. During the fall and winter months, especially as it gets too cold for comfort, construction will be far less invasive to your lifestyle if you’re already foregoing extra time outside to stay toasty in your home. This gives the workers room to complete the job without interrupting time with your loved ones.
Ready for the Spring
If you have your hardscape projects completed in the fall or winter, they’ll be ready for your enjoyment as spring comes back around. This is great since you won’t have to deal with starting the project while you’re trying to enjoy your outdoor space. It’s less invasive for you and your family, and it ensures that you get more time to enjoy your new hardscaping during the first year.
