Spring days draw us outside immediately. At the first glimpse of sunshine that reveals it’s brought warmth, we all go outside to soak it up. This typically means the moment the sun peaks through our windows, we walk outside to reacquaint ourselves with our outdoor living spaces – our patios, decks, pools, fire pits, or gazebos.

And as we take our early spring strolls, we start noticing that winter ‘s wrath has befallen our landscaping. Even if it was stellar last fall before winter approached, it’s likely our landscaping took a few hits form nature and is need of some attention.

But what if your landscaping needs a bit more than minor repair? What do you do when you envision how it will be once it’s in full bloom and you’re not feeling as happy as you’d like to be feeling?

Or, even more common, what if you start thinking your outdoor living area or property is the wrong style, shape, or size to ever improved upon? Before you agree and feel you have no options, rest assured many homeowners experience these thoughts at the onset of spring. And, taking this even future, it’s quite common to start getting stressed out about the amount of time, money, and hard work it might take to elevate your landscaping this spring.

Not to worry!

Here are the 3 simple moves to make to transform your landscape this spring! 

Verify your budget. Instead of worrying about how you’re going to come up with the money you need to elevate your landscaping, start with verifying how much you can easily, reasonably afford. Then work from there. You will be amazed at how impressively you can elevate your landscaping with a manageable amount of money. So, be practical and honest. Assess your household finds and expense and discover the amount you have available to allocate to your landscaping.

Remember, a primary expense will be working with a professional landscaper. Consultations will usually be free of charge, as will in many cases the actual design proposal you receive. But there will be costs for materials, etc.

While you may think you can bypass working with a professional landscape service, you are advised not to do that. You will end up spending more money over a longer period of time if you embark upon a landscape transformation on your own.    

Let your budget be your guide as you thoroughly investigate and explore every possible option.  Begin by deciding if you will add hardscapes, a walkway, a gazebo, a patio or an outdoor fireplace -as well as – expanding or creating a garden, or adding shrubs, plants, and trees.

You will be presented with many options and variations of these options. Take your time and constantly refer back to your budget as you make these decisions.

Rely on your professional landscape designer for insight and guidance.  Again, upon confirmation that your choices have kept you within your budget, contact a professional landscape designer to assist you in finalizing the design that you find most attractive, appealing and overall pleasing.
