The Season for Planning

The frozen winter landscape can make it seem like spring and summer are an eternity away. In reality, spring will be here before you know it. The new life and vigor that come with this new season can even be a bit overwhelming.

Winter is a great time to arrange for some landscape projects around your property before the immediate lawn and garden needs of spring hit with full force. Installing a new patio, building an outdoor fireplace or just renovating your entry can really make a change to your enjoyment of your outdoor living “room.”

Problems arise when everyone waits until the weather breaks to ponder these new additions. Homeowners want to see and use their new spring project right away. Large projects, however, can take up to 6 weeks for planning, pricing and approval, and that's before any construction. With these timelines, we often get so loaded with projects that we have to start scheduling jobs as much as several months later.

Decide and act before the rest of the crowd does. Get your plan and specifications drawn up before most people are even thinking about it. This gives you several advantages. First, you’re getting more of the Garrick-Santo design team's attention, and we will have a little more time to put into your plan. The best part of planning ahead is that you will be able to fully enjoy your new addition while your neighbors are still in the planning stage. So call today and take advantage of these winter months. It will make your spring and summer a lot more fun!
