New Year, New Yard: Ready To Plan Your New Property?

With 2017 coming to a close, it’s time to prepare for the new year. If you’ve been dreaming about redesigning your property, now is the time to act! You might think that you can wait until the spring to start your landscaping project, but the new year is the perfect time to begin your plans.

Why Start Now?

You might be wondering what the rush is on starting your project. The winter is the perfect time to start planning for the spring because designers have the time to work with you. When you start your plan now, you’ll get more face time with a designer to create your perfect outdoor living space. Additionally, landscapers’ spots fill up quickly, so reserving one now will ensure that your project gets completed this year.

What are My Options?

You may have decided that your property needs a makeover, but you don’t know where to start. You have countless options to help improve your property. If you’re interested in creating an outdoor living space, you can add patios, walkways, seating areas, and steps to your property. For added aesthetic and comfort, your landscaper can include fire features and beautiful plant options. If you’re interested in transforming your outdoor living space into an entertaining space, you can install pools, water features, and even an outdoor bar or kitchen. If you have an idea about what you want your property to be, your landscaper can turn your dream into a reality.

What Styles are Trending in 2018?

If you’re looking for inspiration for your new property, you might be curious about trending landscaping styles next year. One of the most popular trends this year is sculptural seat walls surrounding fire features. These features are both attractive and functional, allowing you and your guests to spend time around a fire. Natural stone steps are also trending, to create a rustic atmosphere in your outdoor living space. Lastly, bean-shaped pools can be a great way to add entertainment value to your property while improving the aesthetic much more than a rectangular pool.

"We didn't want to let too much time pass before writing to you. We are so pleased with the patio and have already used it many times in the past few weeks. We always had a nice retreat in the woods - but now we are actually USING the space to read, cook and relax. Your team was a pleasure to work with on the project. Dave kept everything moving and we felt very well informed throughout the build. He went above and beyond to make sure that our property was well cared for and that the patio ultimately fit our vision. Jimmy was the other key component to the team. He is an extremely hard worker that was very dedicated to the project and easily served as our onsite contact when Dave was unavailable. We cannot compliment either of them enough! From the beginning, we have loved your vision for this project and we hope to work with you again in the future. Thank you for creating our new backyard oasis! It's perfect." Read more comments
