The best time to start landscaping and planting trees, shrubs, and perennials is in the months of April and May. These spring months will give your plants the opportunity to grow and acclimate during the summer and fall. However, the next best time to start landscaping is fall. The landscaping process is just that, a process.
Rome wasn't built in a day, and neither is any beautiful property that makes people stop and stare. So, sadly, you can't think about the changes you want for your garden this year in the spring and then snap your fingers and make them happen. You must begin the process before plant life sprouts and sprouts again if you want to be successful. The latter part of summer is a good time to start planting, provided you pay enough attention to watering, leading to fall and landscaping tasks.
In most cases, plants die during the first year due to improper planting or insufficient watering. Rarely do insects or diseases wreak havoc during the first year. By taking care of this in the fall, you'll maximize your chances of success. Contractors are more difficult to book in their peak season (spring to fall), so it's best to plan ahead.
Do you want a new patio for next summer? Try to book your contractor during the fall or winter to make sure they are ready to begin construction in the spring. With increasing interest in the pandemic landscape, we've seen wait times increase, so it's best to put yourself on a contractor's books as soon as possible. The Yardzen team is here to help facilitate the entire contractor selection and selection process.
