Home Landscape Planning Checklist 2019
With the weather being in the 60’s the past few days (don’t get used to it though its only the middle of March!), many of us may be considering what updates we’d like to see for our home landscaping this spring and summer season. So, instead of simply picking up last year with mowing and yard cleanup, consider what larger scale projects you put off last year or the past few years to tackle this warm weather season.
Here is a brief look at what you can do to make the most of planning.
Mowing the lawn on a weekly or every few days (if heavy rains and sun), is a high priority but not the kind of priority we’re talking about here. Think about a failing our outdated sprinkler system, think about a pool that is in need of major repairs, or a retaining wall that is falling apart, a walkway that is broken and damaged; these are the sort of high priority items you should be considering first. Making a plan to do this can be the perfect start to the spring for your outdoor decor.
Considering redoing the mulch areas of your yard or planting new trees and shrubs will go a longer way if you know your budget and what styles and varieties you like to meet in the middle. How large is the area that needs new soil or mulch? What is your budget for this years outdoor landscaping? This goes along with prioritizing because making the best decision for you financially can also be the best decision for the look and feel of your landscape design.
When you have your priorities straight and your budget mapped out, start to seriously plan with a local landscape contractor on what to tackle first and then in what order to move from there. Knowing what you want to see done in our 6 months of good weather is different than actually having a plan in mind (or even set on paper), for what and when you want things finished by. Want the pool redone by the 4th of July? Or the patio pavers finished for your daughters high school graduation party? Keep the time frames of good weather in mind.
With so much going on in our day to day lives and the warm weather of Spring approaching, thinking about this sort of thing now is a great advantage when it comes to making things happen. Discuss this sort of thing with your spouse or partner, heck even ask the kids what they think, and get to the drawing board as a team. This can make things not only more fun, but make sure everyone is happy with the updates this spring and summer.
