As winter is in full swing, your outdoor living space may be the last thing on your mind. However, as you are bundling up by the fire, you should also be planning your new outdoor living space.

If planning your outdoor living space in the wintertime doesn't seem beneficial, here are three reasons why it's actually the best time to start doing so.

1. Planning your outdoor living space takes time.

Even if you just want to focus on a small section of your outdoor living space, you should still allow for ample time to plan your design. This way, our team can help you work out all of the details.

You also need time to reflect on what did and didn't work well in the prior year. Was your outdoor space too small to properly host your gatherings? Could you benefit from an outdoor kitchen? Did certain plants grow poorly? Take some time in the winter to think about these questions and consider other factors that may affect your new outdoor living space design and installation.

2. Your landscape is bare in the winter.

Because of Michigan's harsh winters, your landscape will likely be barer from December to around mid-March. While this may sound like a bad thing, it's helpful when planning your outdoor living space. You can better visualize the placement of hardscape features like outdoor kitchens and lighting options. Plus, you start with a clean slate in terms of softscape.

Another advantage of a bare landscape is that it allows you to assess potential issues. Without a lot of greenery around, you will have a clearer view of your landscape. We can help you better spot areas prone to erosion and drainage issues. From there, we can install retaining and seating walls and other hardscape features that will address these issues by the time spring begins.

3. Other property owners won't be thinking about landscape design in the winter.

A lot of property owners don't pay any attention to their landscapes in the winter. Most of them wait until the warmer months to even think about maintaining or redoing their outdoor living spaces.

While we are eager to help year-round, you will have our undivided attention in the winter. You can more easily set up a consultation that fits well into your busy schedule. While other property owners will be scrambling to plan their project in the spring and summer, you will be all set to fully enjoy your completed outdoor living space.
