4 Reasons to Dream, Plan and Work on Landscape Projects this Fall

As the summer winds down, you catch a few more lasting summer memories dipping your toes in Lake Erie, hosting friends with for a BBQ or road tripping to Cedar Point. Enjoy every moment!

But, as you celebrate the warm weather with family and friends in your yard, the season brings to light needed (or wanted) changes to your landscape. After all, inspiration births as you live and entertain in these spaces.

Getting started on these projects this fall is good for you and your yard.

Savor Next Summer

As you host the final neighborhood BBQs before cold lake breezes cover your yard with snow, prepare to jump-start your projects this fall. Small and large projects benefit from an autumn deadline. After all, work done now allows you to eek every last drop out of next summer’s activities. Plus, fall lawn maintenance maintains lawn health over the harsh winter. 

Make the Most of Time

Typically our minds set aside the summer for a more active but relaxed pace of life. Who likes to work in this season of play? Add the staggering heat and humidity, plus the power outages (courtesy of thunderstorms) to the mix, and projects take longer in the summer. Fall proves the ideal temperature and time to work.

Save Your Hard-Earned Cash

Next summer’s vacation dreams require savings to become reality. Plus, the heating costs of northeast Ohio winters suck dollars from your budget all too easily. Fall projects allow you to capitalize on a current contractor and product pricing. In the spring, prices are likely to rise. Plus, you may find seasonal (dollar and time) savings offered in this less busy building season.

Let the Planning Begin!

While you may sneak in a fall clambake on that new patio, the discouragement of snow falling before enjoying finished projects deters homeowners from fall landscaping projects. Imagine a moment: A January thaw finds you grilling on a fall-built deck. Spring births a lush green lawn which was cared for in the autumn. Dark winter nights sparkle with innovative lighting projects.

Plus, the winter leaves plenty of time to dream of and plan next summer’s festivities. A family reunion with games on your lush lawn? A neighborhood pool party on your newly laid brick paver patio? Or, quiet dinners with close family and friends around a charming fire pit?

Get the whole family involved! Then, once the temperatures rise, you are set to go!
