Winter Is The Time For Hardscape Design

Hardscape design is one of the most beneficial and valuable additions one can make to their outdoor living space. Hardscape combines the natural elements of your property with brick and mortar solutions to create exquisite landscape settings for outdoor enjoyment. But hardscape projects take planning, resources, and time to complete. The winter months provide the best scenario for hardscape design as the season is slow for landscapers and garden architects and you are not using the outside spaces of your home due to the weather.

Here are the top reasons why winter is the best time for your hardscape projects

#1 Less Damage To Your Property

Hardscape design and building can take a toll on the natural landscape. Hardscape involves heavy materials and digging of soil and ground to manipulate the space being created. In the spring and summer, a hardscape project can cause considerable damage to the surrounding landscape areas. But in winter, while your trees, shrubs, grass, and plants are dormant, hardscape design can be implemented with greater ease and less destruction.

#2 Easier Scheduling

During the winter season, the landscape business is at its slowest. Garden architects, masonry workers, and landscapers have much more time for scheduling which will make your hardscape project happen in the timeframe you are looking for. Winter also allows for more attention from the hardscape crew to plan, design, discuss materials, and last-minute changes as they work on your property.

#3 Save On Costs

As with the scheduling, the winter season brings cost savings to your hardscape design as the workers and crews have fewer appointments and projects in their books. This allows for a cost in labor, materials, design, and cleanup.

#4 Ideal Temperatures

The winter in the south is milder than in other parts of the country. Our average temperatures make it a pleasant and comfortable work environment for the landscape crew and make the job move more efficiently and effectively.

#5 More Time To Enjoy Your Hardscape Area

By completing your hardscape design in the winter months, your project will be ready to be used come spring and summer. This makes for a wonderful outdoor aesthetic when the weather is nice and keeps from the ugly mess that occurs during the hardscape building to be visible in spring.

No matter what your hardscape dream project is, the winter is the best time to set it up and make it a reality.
