Winter Hardscaping Planning

Taking Advantage of the Cold Months to Prep the Hardscaping Backyard of Your Dreams

During the winter months, landscaping is all but forgotten, as the grass and plants go dormant and temperatures drop. But this can actually be a great time to think about your hardscaping projects such as patios, pools, outdoor fireplace, etc. By starting now, you will have ample time to thoroughly plan and design your projects. You’ll be ready to begin construction as soon as the weather warms up, and be enjoying your new hardscaping while your neighbors are still in the planning stages.

Weather permitting, you may even be able to go beyond planning and actually begin installing hardscaping. Georgia has fluctuating winter conditions. The occasional warmer temperatures, and minimal snow, and less rainy days, provide good conditions for hardscape installation.

There are several benefits to installing hardscaping during the winter. Because your grass, plants, and flowers are dormant and the ground is frozen, there is less chance of damaging your landscape during construction. In the spring, the weather may be warmer but spring rain showers also tend to leave your construction area wet and muddy.

Completing your hardscaping construction during the colder weather also means you won’t have to listen to noisy construction during warm months when you would like to have your windows open. If you plan to use a professional, like Dogwood to install your hardscaping, the winter months also tend to allow for more flexible scheduling, faster completion, and occasional lower costs since it is the off-season.
