As the holiday season winds down and winter is in full swing, it’s easy to think you have plenty of time to plan your new outdoor project. The reality, however, is that the clock is ticking!
With the supply and labor challenges of the past few years, most reputable contractors are scheduling work months in advance, and Native Designs is no different. The best time to plan for that spring and summer project is now.
Comprehensive planning is the key to getting the most out of your hardscape and landscape projects. Some of the initial steps are as follows:
First: Decide what you want from your space. Are you looking for a quiet retreat, a space to entertain and host gatherings, or a little of both?
Second: Identify the flow of the space, objectional views you want to hide, drainage needs, and land use issues
Third: Determine which elements you want to incorporate, such as a fire or water feature, a shade structure, terracing, or a retaining wall. These are the “bones” of a project from which all else can be developed.
