It's Winter, Why Design Now?

Grasshopper Gardens - Thursday, January 02, 2014
As a landscape architect, the number one question I get is, “What do you do in the winter time?”  The answer is always, Design!   

Good design is the basis of any great project.  The creative process takes time, so it is best to start earlier, rather than later. 

 The benefits of designing in the winter: 

-Allows for time before the planting season to create the best design possible. 

-Having the design in place earlier, allows the landscaping crew to start prep work, even in the winter, in some cases.

-Signing on with a landscape designer in the winter can beat all the procrastinators.  You could be enjoying your new yard, while others are just thinking about the design.

-Limiting the number of under-pressure decisions to get the project done quickly. 

-More time to select and order the desired materials, rather than working with the landscape supplier’s leftovers. 

-Better pricing, as the landscaping crew is generally a bit slower and pleased to be able to work, when the weather allows. 

Grasshopper Gardens’ design team is open this winter, and every winter, and ready to design your dream yard.  We offer free consultations, so there is nothing to lose.  Give us a call today and be on your way to enjoying your yard in the Summer!
