Don’t Wait Too Long To Start

Moving into a new house can be an overwhelming process, even if you’re experienced at relocating. The reality is, it takes time to get settle in, and other projects often get put by the wayside. That said, the earlier you can get a jumpstart on your landscaping, the easier it will be to see your full vision come to life with minimal delays. If you’re not sure where to get started, partnering with a professional contractor can help narrow your focus and make the first steps easy.

Hardscape Then Landscape

One of the most important places to begin is with and “hardscape” features you’d like to include. Pathways, pergolas, brick gardens, and more are best put in before your plants and foliage.

Choose Features Suited To Your Environment

As tempting as it might be to look at features that fit in other climates, being realistic about the pros and cons of your local environment is important. Make sure you select materials, plants, and a layout that is easy to maintain year-round in order to avoid disappointment or frustration.

Consider The Balance of DIY And Working With A Professional

While there are certainly elements of landscaping that you can do yourself, when starting with a “blank slate”, it’s usually a good idea to consult a professional landscaper prior to making any major changes. Even if you plan on doing the labour yourself, working with an experienced team can give you a clear blueprint for success and help you avoid costly mistakes.
