While the winter months tend to have us focus on the indoors, this is actually a great time to think about the outdoors. Thinking and planning about your summer landscape design during the winter will allow you to take your time and not feel rushed.

How long does it take to plan a landscape design? A landscape design project can take several weeks of planning. Think of it as a big event like a wedding, or big vacation. Well…it is a big event and one you will cherish for many years. You want it to be done right! A landscape design project fuels hope and confidence as it helps you create a road-map toward a better garden. Landscape construction is a financial investment in your home – the one place you go to relax, entertain, and enjoy life.

So start early. Now is the time to call a designer and begin the planning process for your new landscape. You may also want to look through several landscape magazines and books to find pictures of landscape designs, water feature, decks, patios, and walkways that you like. There are so many details it can be overwhelming, but we are here to help. While we ask for a nominal fee for an initial consultation, we are happy to refund it back to you if you hire our firm for follow up landscape design or construction work.

Brainstorming about your landscape with a green industry professional should provide allot of fuel for your creative fire.

It takes time to complete the planning process. Transplanting existing desirable plants may be part of the process. Transplanting plants in the dead of winter when they are dormant will greatly increase their survivability. After planting new trees, shrubs and groundcovers it takes a while for them to root out and establish. If the work can be completed in the winter or spring, you will be able to enjoy healthier plants during the summer. So plan your landscape project during winter, plant in the winter or spring, and enjoy your new landscape in summer.

If you are planning a landscape design project for your home, you do not need to call a landscape architect. Actually, you will save some money by dealing with a landscape design/build company like Environmental Construction, Inc. Just make sure whoever you call has been in business for a long time and have a history of happy customers and quality work.

Environmental Construction Inc has been a BBB Accredited business since July 1997.
