Spring is a time for new beginnings, new projects, and more time outdoors. What better time to complete your outdoor home improvement projects so you can spend your summer days relaxing? Careful planning will allow you to achieve the best possible results, and here, we have the tips you’ll need to plan for spring landscape renovations smoothly.

Tips to Plan for Spring Landscape Renovations

Find a Great Contractor

First, find a contractor you are comfortable with, who has good reviews, shows THEIR work on their website, and knows what they are talking about. Don’t be afraid to ask questions! You can start your search with online research as you are doing now and ask for referrals from neighbors and local family.

Check with your state’s home improvement laws to know the requirements for a legitimate contract. For example, you need a contractor who is fully licensed and insured, and you may need a permit from the county to install various outdoor structures.

Choose Materials & Design You Like

Pick materials and get samples on site–don’t be bullied into a material you don’t like; there are lots to pick from. Pick something that goes with your home style but also what YOU want to drive up to every day. After all, it is YOUR home, so you call the shots. It’s worth researching the options online, but you can get expert advice and see and feel the materials for yourself when you visit a landscaping company’s office.

Mark Utilities Before Digging

Make sure underground lines are marked or located before a shovel hits the dirt, especially for significant landscaping renovations. 

Know the Contract

Make sure the contract is satisfied and the details are finalized. You should always know and 100% understand all parts of the contract. If you’re not sure about something, you should ask! Take a close look at the estimate or quote when you are reviewing it as well. Beware of murky details, and don’t hesitate to ask for clarification.

Know How to Care for Your New Landscaping

Ask about the maintenance of new plants, hardscapes, or other installations. A developed landscape needs to be cared for, and doing simple things over the years will let you enjoy your garden for decades to come. A great contractor will be happy to give you all the information you need.
