New construction landscaping is a lesser known, but vital part of making the most out of your space. Not only does it give you the change to customize your lot to fit your style, it also ensures that all external elements of your yard are safely designed. Learn more about the basics of new construction landscaping and its importance below.

What’s Involved?

Think landscaping only refers to well manicured lawns and flower beds? Think again! New home landscaping refers to any work done to the property’s landscape once the main structure (house, commercial building, etc.) is completed. From topography work to constructing fences, walkways, and more, landscaping helps tie together all elements of your new home.

Why Should I Care?

In addition to adding to the aesthetics and value of your home, proper landscaping will ensure your lot is prepared to handle the demands of rainfall, snow, and other season elements to avoid costly mishaps and risks. It also can greatly decrease your overall need for maintenance in the years to come, as well as from season to season.

When Should I Start Planning?

Ideally, you’ll want to partner with a landscaping contractor during construction to devise a plan that works best for your space early on. This will ensure you have a plan in place once the build is completed and affords you extra time to break the necessary work into phases, saving you money in the long run. You’ll also want to be proactive in setting a dedicated budget well in advance to avoid unnecessary hold ups.
