Our Canadian winters can be so long and tedious, which is why it’s the best time of year to start planning your spring landscape while dissipating those winter blues. Landscaping projects need careful planning and thought in order to create an attractive and cohesive design that doesn’t end up looking like it was thrown together. To create a show-stopping poolscape in your backyard, here are four reasons to consider getting a jump start on your spring design now.
Take Your Mind Off the Weather
Once the holidays are over, there isn’t much to distract us from the ugly winter weather outside. Planning out your spring landscape is a great way to spend your time when you’re cooped up inside. You can take the time to browse through websites like Pinterest to get some inspiring ideas, sift through garden magazines, and start to formulate the scope of what you want your backyard to look like when it’s completed. It’ll give you something to do while taking your mind off of the slushy, messy weather outside.
Beat the Busy Season
By having a well-integrated plan ready to go, you’ll be able to beat the busy spring rush. You can book your date with your preferred landscaping company and get your project started once the ground thaws out. This will also give you some time to actually enjoy your new and improved landscape during the summer.
Overcome Design Hurdles
When you’re planning out your pool and backyard design, you’ll also be able to consider any problem areas that might need to be addressed. For example, pooling water could highlight a drainage problem and a lack of privacy could require a new fence installation. Erosion or other issues with your terrain can also be mitigated with solutions ahead of time to ensure a smooth process before any shovel hits the ground.
Increase the Value of Your Home
A poolscape and well-kept exterior can boost the value of your home quite dramatically. Most buyers these days want a turn-key property that’s already been updated, and that includes a landscape that they can sit back in and enjoy. If you’re planning to place your home on the market in the near future, this is an ideal time to spruce up your yard.
