You may not think of winter and landscape design in the same sentence, but the truth is that winter is the prime time to be planning your landscape design. The cold is just arriving in Northeast Ohio, but we know that months from now, as spring begins, temperatures will start to thaw and we will want to start enjoying our outdoor areas. Wouldn’t it be nice if your new landscape design was thoroughly planned, ready to be executed at the start of the spring season? If you connect with your landscape designer now, it can be! There are many advantages to starting your landscape design now:


Fall weather is perfect for initial design planning. At the beginning of any landscape design project, there will be many measurements and pictures that need to be taken. If you do so before the harsh snowy weather arrives, you will have all the information you need to begin your planning in the winter, rather than having to wait until the end of winter to get started. Those are valuable planning months that shouldn’t be overlooked!


The planning process takes time and patience. Much like a home renovation or custom home build, a custom landscape design will take a great deal of communication between clients and designers. This communication requires both time and patience. If you wait until the spring to start the conversation, you likely will not be able to begin executing your design until much later that season. Take advantage of wintertime to allow for communication about any budget concerns, your vision, and your needs for the design. Rather than rushing to make decisions in the spring, you will be able to do so in a more relaxed manner.


With planning complete before spring, your landscape design can begin earlier in the season. By being proactive and completing your plans during the winter, your project can get started as soon as the weather allows next spring. Your landscape designer can pre-order all necessary materials and have them ready to go on your project site. You will be able to enjoy your new landscape design, whether it is a custom outdoor kitchen, patio, or water feature, for much of the spring and summer!
