Five Reasons to Design Now for Your Spring Landscape Project

November 26th, 2018

If you are dreaming of a fresh landscape or a renovation of your backyard with a flowing fountain and wood pergola, now is the time to start planning. The time it takes to design, plan, and install a landscape will vary depending on the uniqueness of the project and the customers wants. Below you will find five reasons you should start the design process now for you spring or summer landscaping project.

Design time

There are many factors that can play into the amount of time it takes to design a layout. If Alpine Gardens makes a trip to the location to assess the space or if it is a more complex design, the time to complete may take longer. If the project is simpler and the customer already provides measurements and the concept, design time can be shorter. 

Choosing product and trees

The customer is presented with plant and tree suggestions by the project manager to fit into their landscape design. If the customer would like more specific plants or to tour the grounds of Fossil Creek Nursery to select their plants, this may take more time in the planning process. Either way, Alpine Gardens want to make sure their customers are happy and that they achieve the right look that they imagine for their space.

Schedule of sub-contractors

Sub-contractors are in a high demand in Colorado with many other projects going on. However, since winter tends to be a slower time, now is the time to lock sub-contractors in to get started on projects before the heavy season comes. Pre-scheduling install now for the March/ April timeframe will help your project be finished in time to enjoy in the warmer weather.

Winter is a less busy time for landscapers

Winter time brings more time for planning and lining up a project for spring. With the colder weather moving in, Alpine Gardens has more time to focus on a design and planning of a project now. If the design and planning process starts now, you will be ahead of the game.

Have your project ready to enjoy in nicer weather

If you design now, you have 4-6 months before the nice weather rolls back around. That gives Alpine Gardens a large amount of time to get plans in place. Before you know it, your project will be ready in time for you to enjoy the warmer weather and to fully utilize your finished landscape!

If you are thinking about adding a new landscape to your home, the time to plan is now. The Alpine Gardens staff can start designing, planning, getting approvals, and lining up work now so the project will be ready to go come spring.
