Fall is the Best Time to Build Your Deck

Honeysuckle Nursery & Design Fall Deck

There are several benefits to building a deck in the fall for both the contractors and the client that make it worth considering.

Now that it’s officially meteorological fall, you may feel like you’ve missed your opportunity to install and enjoy a brand new deck. Those lazy summer days of sitting out in the sun and enjoying the warmth while admiring your landscaping are gone for another year.  That isn’t true, however. Fall is a great time to continue enjoying your outdoor living spaces, and it’s not too late to schedule your deck installation and still get a little use out of it. If you can find the right contractor for your needs, fall may actually be the best time to install a new deck. Read on to learn more.

Advantageous Conditions

the weather in fall is gorgeous and comfortable, and doing construction projects outdoors in the fall is preferable to almost any other season. Spring is also nice but tends to be much more rainy and wet. The fall is the perfect time to build. In addition to the nice weather, the ground is also easier to work in and on since it hasn’t frozen for winter yet. All of this, combined with a seasonal slow period, means that many contractors are happy to work at this time of year and often even offer seasonal discounts.

Easier On Landscaping

Building in the fall will also be easier on your existing landscaping. During the spring, when everything is busy sprouting and growing, it is easy to harm your plants with misplaced feet or equipment, but in the fall, they are sturdier from a full summer of growth, and many will be heading into a dormant period, which will protect them even more.

Less Rush

If you wait until the spring and try to get on a schedule for a new deck, you will have to rush through all of the decisions in order to secure your spot. When a spot does pop up in the spring, you have to jump on it, or someone else will, especially if you have a deadline for a Memorial Day cookout. In the fall, you have fewer looming deadlines and less stress forcing you to jump on the first opening in the schedule. In fact, if you need more time to plan your perfect deck, you could even install it in the winter instead.
