High Demand on Landscaping Schedule

Say goodbye to winter blues and hello to the cheery colors of spring! As cabin fever subsides and homeowners spend more time outdoors, be forewarned that this year’s landscaping schedule is looking a little extra busy!

Home entertainment, small outdoor gatherings, and more time working from home all point in one direction: Outside!

Parents have spent time working in home offices and homeschooling little ones; retired couples are looking for a little getaway after spending so much time in quarantine. Busy working individuals are ready for some fresh air and a new scene.

Even homeowners contemplating selling are investing in outdoor kitchens, deluxe patios, and cozy fire-pits – features they can enjoy today, and will give them a high return on investment upon selling. Whether you’re envisioning a professional quality backyard barbecue station or a conversation area with warm outdoor lighting – perfect for enjoying a relaxed adult evening – investing in your outside space is one of the most satisfying investments you can make – bringing not only more home comfort and satisfaction today, but potentially extra dividends when it comes time to sell your home!

Many homes and families are already booking their lawn care for this summer or putting in an outdoor fireplace for chilly spring evenings. Schedule your home exterior renovations before it’s too late!

Move Quickly: Hardscape Materials are Low

With imports of needed hardscape supplies stalled through pandemic-influenced manufacturing and shipping delays, coupled with the demand for these items increased by a multitude of workers across the country working from home (who began to notice their property could use a little freshening up), unfortunately landscape materials often now require a fair amount of advance planning and early ordering. Special textures and popular colors of manufactured stone are also becoming harder to get. The solution: It’s important for to book hardscape and landscape projects sooner rather than later. If you want to enjoy your new outdoor living space all summer long, the only way to be sure you receive exactly what you want is to start early – and there is no time like the present!
