Even though it may be winter it doesn’t mean that you can’t do anything to your landscape design. In fact, the colder months are the best time to get things done to your Encinitas home because it means that it will be easier to work outside, and that everything will be ready by the time the warmer months roll around so that you can fully enjoy it.

By starting early, you give your yard and landscaping design a chance to flourish by the time the summer arrives. Big projects can also be time consuming, so the earlier you start with your big outdoor projects the better—especially for any workers that will be able to avoid working during the hottest days of the year. Below are a couple of things you can do right now to help your yard to look its best by the time the summer finally arrives.

Planting Flowers

The good part of living in a warm climate like Encinitas is that you seldom have to worry about starting too soon when it comes to outdoor landscaping and flowers. In colder climates you can’t plant flowers too early as you run the risk of freezing bulbs and seeds and wasting your efforts. This is the perfect time to begin working with your landscape designer to figure out which flowers you may want to plant, so that by the time the summer comes they’re flourishing and looking their best.

Trees & Grass

Unlike flowers that generally only flourish in the summer months, trees and grass need year round attention in order to thrive. Consider doing any new landscaping design in the winter months to make sure that you spend less on watering when it matters most. Similarly, fruit and citrus trees often create fruit year-round, so consider adding them to your property to keep a variety of colors on your property when you can’t have flowers.

Big Construction

The best time of year to begin construction on the exterior of your home and around your landscaping is in the winter, at least in places like Encinitas where the weather stays temperate year round but is refreshing in the cooler months. This time of year is a great time to begin planning any major construction you want to complete in the near future—and the best time to consider adding a pool to your Encinitas home to assure that it’s finished by the summer.

Regardless of the time of year, living in Encinitas means you get to enjoy your landscaping all year long. Find out more about what you can do to make the most of your landscaping design by getting in touch with us to start planning your dream landscaping.
