Why winter construction?

 

Why winter construction?

Just because the animals are hibernating through the winter doesn’t mean you have to. Why stop using your landscape as soon as the first snowflake falls? Well-designed landscapes look beautiful in all seasons, snow or shine.

It’s never too late in the year to start outdoor construction projects. At Detailed Landscape, we work with clients year-round to deliver their dream projects. While winter may not be the best time to plant petunias, winter construction can be advantageous for hardscape work like masonry, decks and patios, and other structures, because plants are dormant, which may increase visibility and reduce the overall impact of construction.

Planning for projects during the cold months also means it’s also likely that your project will be done in a shorter timeframe, since our teams are busiest in the spring and summer months.

Here are some ideas perfect for winter construction projects to keep your landscape beautiful year-round and prepare for maximum enjoyment as soon as outdoor living season returns. Check out our portfolio for even more inspiration.

Outdoor fireplaces and kitchens

Building a cozy fireplace can make outdoor spaces a little more comfortable in the cold weather, and an outdoor kitchen can get you ready for outdoor dinner parties on the first warm day of the year.

Pergolas and structures

Pergolas and structures add architectural flair to your landscape, providing both beauty and new spaces for entertaining guests.

Decks and patios

Adding an elegant deck or patio extends your living space out into the great outdoors while also adding value to your home.

Walkways and paths

If you’re looking for a touch of charm that will also make your landscape more functional, natural stone or manufactured pavers in an attractive pattern can be just the right choice.

By getting your landscape ready in the winter, you’ll be able to take advantage of your outdoor space as soon as the first buds start appearing on the trees.
