Even though it may not feel like it right now, winter is right around the corner. Before we know it, temperatures will begin to plummet and we’ll have to trade falling leaves for falling snow. With the colder temperatures, we’ll start to spend less time outside on our patios or decks, and more time inside warming up by the fireplace. Since we’re outside less and less often, we’re more likely to forget about our hardscaping and landscaping. However, winter is the perfect time to think about hardscapes in Kansas City, MO, and to start thinking about redesigning your yard for next spring:
- Planning is essential: The number one reason to start thinking about your hardscaping now is to ensure we can properly plan the whole job. The last thing you want is to break ground only to find out that your original design wasn’t what you actually want, or worse, that the hardscape idea won’t work structurally. Let us get to work planning your hardscape now, so we can get the details down pat to ensure a perfect hardscape.
- Learn all of your options: Going along with planning, getting to know all of your options for hardscapes in Kansas City, MO can take a while. There are so many different types of pavers out there, and choosing the right one for your home can be nearly impossible. These decisions get harder with each project. If you’re adding a patio or deck, you may need months to plan and choose all of the right styles and materials.
- Ensure your project is finished by summer: Hardscaping is like any type of construction job—problems arise all the time, which can delay the project and cause headaches for everyone involved. The worst part is that, if your hardscaping project is delayed, that big party you were looking forward to hosting during the spring may have to be postponed.
- Get to know us now: Knowing who you’re working with is the key to a successful home improvement job. The longer we work with someone, the better we can get to know you and your personal preferences. Being on a first name basis with your contractor and everyone else on the crew is invaluable. Call today to speak with one of our friendly staff members and set up a free consultation to learn more about our services.
- We work in the winter: You probably think freezing cold temperatures don’t lend themselves to hardscaping jobs. However, this is not the case! While we typically don’t install a ton of hardscapes in the colder months, we don’t take the winter off. As long as the ground isn’t too soggy or soft, you can still find us installing retaining walls and performing demolition work in order to prepare for spring jobs.
