You might be thinking that you should put “landscape planning” on your list of things to think about in May. However, the benefits of planning ahead for your landscape project are pretty enormous:
Be the first in line
Once the sun comes out everyone starts looking at their yards. They start imagining the BBQs and relaxing that could be done in their perfect yard. And they start looking for landscapers. And they will find that landscapers are 3 months out which means they won’t have their perfect outdoor space until fall. But that won’t be you. You planned. You called in January.
You Won’t Be Stressed in the Summer
Planning your landscape now means all the time and decision making for your outdoor living space is already done. You can relax knowing that all the details have been worked out and you are in control of your summer. When the sun starts shining your yard will be ready for sitting and soaking up all that Vitamin D.
Your Yard Will Be Ready for Your Summer Parties
A warm summer day may seem a long way off, but it really isn’t. All those fun backyard parties you want to have in 2019 can be done in your new yard. Don’t like parties? How about some self-care with a glass of wine and a good book?
Anticipation Will Help the Time Fly By
Spending the late winter and spring getting your landscape design finalized and installed will help summer come quicker! Well, not really. But it will make the time fly by. Anticipating spending time in your new landscape will make summer seem that much closer.
It Feels Great to Be Ahead
Alan Lakein famously said, “Planning is bringing the future into the present so that you can do something about it now.”
Knowing that you are planning for your future with help you feel less rushed. You are able to stand back and make sure that you are communicating with your landscaper so all the details are perfect. And if any issues arise you and your landscape professional are ready to deal with it – stress-free.
