When Is The Ideal Season To Install A Landscape?
Cycles occur in landscaping throughout the year. In general, spring is the greatest season for starting hardscaping work, preparing and establishing flower beds, etc.
The majority of significant landscape and hardscaping projects are completed during the summer construction season. Because of the lower temperatures in the fall, planting trees and plants is a terrific idea.
Through the fall and up until the ground freezes or it starts to snow, hardscaping is also done. A prior endeavor that got underway in the late summer is one such. The patio, sitting walls, fireplace, and other hardscaping elements were all constructed, and trees and plants were placed as well.
