Whether you’re planning a new pool installation or pool renovations, the surrounding pool deck should…
If you spent part of the summer visiting friends and neighbors who have jaw-dropping backyard pools, patios, and outdoor kitchens and found yourself thinking about upgrading your own outdoor living space, there’s no better time than fall to start those hardscaping projects.
Why is that, you ask? Let’s dig into the reasons why now is such a great time for installing your hardscaping projects.
Reason #1: You Save Money
Everyone likes to save money and feel like they’re getting a good product for their money. With large, upscale hardscaping projects, there are several reasons you may pay less if you start in the fall than if you start in the spring.
- Hardscaping contractors, especially pool builders, are not as busy in the fall and winter and may not charge summer rates.
- Hardscaping supplies are in lower demand, which can translate into savings or allow you to afford higher-quality materials and design elements than you might otherwise.
Reason #2: Your Project Is Finished More Quickly
Because hardscaping contractors aren’t as busy as they are in the spring and summer, you can get quotes faster. Once you select a contractor, they can get permits faster because not everyone is doing their projects at the same time. And because contractors may not be working on as many projects, their labor force can concentrate on delivering a quicker turnaround on your project. Your inground pool and patio will be ready long before anyone who waits until spring to start their project.
Reason #3: Your Yard Suffers Less Damage
As the weather turns colder, your lawn, shrubs, and other plant life start to go dormant. This means heavy machinery and lots of foot traffic won’t cause as much damage to your landscaping as they might in the spring and summer months. And if you decide to update your landscaping at the same time as your hardscaping, fall is a great time to plant new trees and shrubs.
Reason #4: Fall Hardscaping Is Less Disruptive to Your Family
With colder weather, you don’t spend as much time in your backyard as you would during the warmer months. This means heavy machinery and workers moving around your property won’t be as disruptive as they would when the kids are out of school for the summer.
So, there you have it. By starting your hardscaping projects in the fall, you potentially save time and money, protect your yard, and get a less disruptive experience.
