There Are Good Reasons to Contract Landscape Design Services in the Winter
While the chilly temperatures and the threat of snow at almost any moment are strong signs that winter has now arrived in the Toronto area, these weather elements are also signs that the time is upon us to begin your garden and landscape design plans for next spring. That’s right – planning your gardens and landscaping now for next year and booking your professional landscape design services as soon as possible.
Planning garden and landscape design modifications or upgrades well in advance of the actual construction/building season provides several opportunities, advantages, and benefits. These include:
- Better chances of scheduling landscape design services earlier in the spring
- More time to develop the plan/devise changes to existing landscape design
- Sufficient lead-time for the landscaping services to obtain plants or materials
- An extended opportunity to budget/save before the landscaping work begins
- Potential savings benefits from off-season, early-bird, or promotional discounts
Another aspect that may fuel the urge to plan ahead in terms of garden and landscape design changes relate to the state of the economy. With the costs of vacation travel and/or owning and maintaining a summer property perhaps exceeding the limits of their budgets, more homeowners are turning to so-called stay-at-home vacations by investing in their own backyards. Such projects might include:
- Integration of natural stone structures/landscaping
- Construction of gazebos or other shade shelters
- Incorporating ponds, lighting, etc. within gardens
- Concrete and/or interlocking stone patios/walkways
- Creating outdoor cooking and entertainment areas
For any work of this scope and magnitude, homeowners may find it beneficial to contract the services of a professional landscape design firm, like the experts from Landcare.

- Design concepts and ideas
