At Five Star Landscaping, we often recommend starting your landscaping project as early as possible. In fact, it can be ideal to begin the planning and designing stages of landscaping before the snow has even melted. That way, as soon as the ground has thawed, our team of professional landscapers can immediately begin crafting your new home oasis.
But there’s no rule that says your landscaping project has to be finished before Canada Day. It doesn’t even have to be started before Canada Day. September is (usually) quite mild in Alberta, so it’s entirely possible to start a new landscaping project going into early fall.
Should You Start Now or Wait Until Next Spring?
As we approach the end of construction season, many Calgary homeowners are wondering whether they should jump into their landscaping project now or wait until next spring. As with most things in life, it depends.
If you already understand the design and scope of your project, and your trusted Calgary landscaping team says that your dream yard can be finished before the snow arrives, we recommend moving forward with the project. You may not get too much time to enjoy your beautiful, new yard this year, but next year everything will be perfect. You get to avoid the busy, spring landscaping rush and just enjoy your finished project from the moment winter fades.
On the other hand, if you’re still not sure how to best get the most out of your property, or if you have a lot of ideas but no concrete plans, then it may make sense to wait until 2020. Of course, you should still start the groundwork now. Over the winter, our designers can help you organize all your thoughts and craft a little piece of paradise. And, as soon as the snow is gone, our landscaping team will be primed to begin your project.
If you’d been planning on scheduling a landscaping project for this summer, but it got a little away from you, don’t worry! There’s likely still plenty of time to have our professional landscapers complete your project. Contact our Calgary landscapers today, and we’ll work with you to decide whether it’s best to start now or wait until next spring.
