Many people who are in the market for landscaping services are unaware of the most ideal time to begin planning. The winter months tend to be the slow season for landscaping contractors, which means it is an incredible time to start planning. If you start planning now for your spring landscaping project now, you will beat the rush of the busy season and be able to enjoy the results by the time the flowers begin to bloom! Rhine Landscaping is here with some tips to consider when starting the planning process.
Evaluate Your Current Landscaping
Before you contact a contractor, it is a good idea to personally assess your landscaping and identify your needs. Of course, a contractor will do a better job of prioritizing these needs for you as the process continues, but it is helpful to provide them with a simple idea of your vision to start. Take notice of plants that are overgrown, cracks in hardscaping, etc.
Know How Much You’re Willing to Spend
It is responsible to go into every major remodeling or landscaping project you take on with a pretty clear idea of how much you are willing to spend. It doesn’t have to be an exact number, but coming up with a ballpark range of your ideal budget will help your contractor propose a landscaping plan that is within your means.
Prioritize Your Landscaping Features
If you have a long list of things you want to incorporate into your new landscape, try to list them in order of importance. You may be able to include them all, but if you need to cut a few ideas for the sake of your budget, already having a list compiled will help you narrow things down. Ask yourself what is more important to you – for example, planting robust flowers and trees or installing the patio you’ve been dreaming of?
