Get Ready for Spring: Start Planning Your Landscape and Hardscape Now.

With spring just around the corner, it’s time to start thinking about your outdoor spaces and planning for a beautiful landscape and hardscape. Whether you’re looking to spruce up a current space or starting from scratch, now is the time to get ahead of the rush and get planning.  Let’s take a look at why it’s important to plan ahead and some tips for getting started on your project. 

Why Plan Ahead? 

The most important reason to begin your project now is that you will beat the competition. Starting early gives you access to better materials, more availability in contractors, and better prices overall. Additionally, you will have more options when it comes to materials such as stone and plants. By waiting too long in the season, these resources may become limited or even sold out due to high demand. 

How To Get Started? 

Once you have decided what changes you want to make in terms of landscaping and hardscaping, research local contractors who specialize in these projects. Reach out to us at Down To Earth with questions about our services as well as our availability this spring/summer season. During this process be sure to read our five-star reviews on Google and Yelp as well as our references so that you can be sure you are hiring the best in the biz-US!

Create a Budget

Next, create a budget so that you know how much money is available for materials and labor costs. This will help keep your project within its financial limits while still providing desired results. After making decisions about design elements such as stone type, colors, etc., reach out again with measurements so that correct amounts of materials can be purchased or ordered in advance if necessary. Finally, don’t forget any necessary permits from your local government before beginning construction!  

As we prepare for springtime weather here in Denver,  now is the perfect time for planning a new landscape or hardscape design for your home or business property. With proper planning—including researching local contractors, creating a budget, deciding on material types and colors—you can beat the rush while avoiding potential issues due to limited availability of certain materials later in the season. So this year beat the competition by getting ready now!
