Many of our landscaping clients believe that fall is not an ideal time to do any kind of landscape project outside. Many believe that fall is just too late in the year to be doing work outside, especially planting. This is not the case at all!
Below are five benefits to starting your landscaping project in the fall.
Fall Landscaping Benefit #1: Start Your Landscaping Project Sooner
Our landscape installation schedule is not as full in the fall months like it is in the spring. Because of this, we can start your landscape project much sooner after signing the contract than we would be able to during the crazy-busy spring and summer months.
Fall Landscaping Benefit #2: Save Money
Our vendors often offer special fall pricing on landscape materials to get rid of their inventory before the snow starts flying. Because of this, we can often offer better pricing on all types of landscaping projects during the fall.
Fall Landscaping Benefit #3: Less Stress on New Plantings
Plants and lawn areas installed during the fall months have a much better chance of survival due to the cooler temperatures. Fall plantings will also require less watering and maintenance after they have been installed than they would in the spring and summer.
Fall Landscaping Benefit #4: Fewer Work Delays
Weather delays frustrate both our clients and us as well. Come fall, there is typically less inclement weather compared to the spring so there are fewer chances for weather delays on your landscaping project. Considering there are fewer weather delays, combined with easier scheduling (see Benefit #1 above), tackling your landscape project in the fall makes a lot of sense.
Fall Landscaping Benefit #5: Enjoy Your Spring and Summer
By having your landscaping project completed during the fall you will be able to enjoy it for all of the following seasons. Who wants to lose out on the gorgeous weather spring and summer offers? Tackle your project in the fall and reap the rewards come spring.
