Design in Fall, Build in Spring: Creating the Perfect Landscape Timeline
Fall is a great time to consider landscape design to reap your outdoor space's benefits in the summer. There are many elements to consider when it comes to creating your ideal outdoor space.
Regardless of the size of your outdoor space and well-planned landscape design can transform your landscape into an area that everyone will enjoy.
When working with a landscape designer, they will help you filter through different ideas and options to best suit your outdoor space. A well-designed landscape has also been attributed to increasing a home's value between 5-11%, which shifts this home project from an expense to one of the best investments you can make for your home.
To ensure your landscape design fits perfectly within your vision, taking advantage of the fall and winter season will be an ideal time to focus on the specifics to get ready for the spring construction, maximizing your use of your new landscape.
Ideas for your landscape designs may include:
- Rock features
- Upgrading your bed border for plants
- Creating garden beds
- Adding water fixtures
- Creating a pond
- Water wall
- Adding a patio
- Creating stone walkways
- & much more
Your landscape designer will help you go through different options and inspire you from previous work with an extensive gallery to visualize better. There are also other factors to consider; for instance, if you desire a waterfall, pick a sloped spot if possible. Think about what sort of water sounds you would like to hear. Decide where you will be viewing the water feature from inside the house. Position it by a window you use often. You may want to design a pond for koi or other ornamental fish. Think about what sort of paths, rocks, and plants you want near your pond.
An experienced landscape designer will walk you through your different options and provide suggestions to create your ideal landscape. Your landscape design will all provide that layer of visuals to help bring the concept to life.
