Here’s Why Fall and Winter are the Best Times for Outdoor Projects


Thanksgiving isn’t far away, and temperatures here in northern Nevada have dropped noticeably. We’ve enjoyed a beautiful autumn without the high winds that prematurely strip trees of their leaves, and you’ve already turned off your sprinklers and drip systems for the season. If you’re like most people, your thoughts aren’t on your outdoor spaces at all. But if you have any plans for the spring, now is the time to get them started. Here’s why fall and winter are the best times for outdoor projects.

There’s No Rush

Time moves quickly, and before we know it, the northern Nevada sunshine will be here again. Starting the process of finding a landscape construction company, drawing up plans, and making decisions over the fall and winter means you’ll have everything lined up and ready when the ground thaws. Just imagine how wonderful it will be to have that first barbecue of the season in your newly updated outdoor space!

You’ll Take Advantage of Industry Availability

By the time warm weather is here, the availability of local landscape companies here in Reno and Sparks will drop dramatically. Getting on their schedules now means you’ll get first priority, especially by managing every part of the process that can be handled prior to installation. Spend some time finding the right company for your needs, and see what kind of deals you can et in these off-seasons. Harris Landscape Construction here in Reno offers free estimates, and we’d be happy to answer all of your questions and share references and our credentials.

You’ll Observe Your Outdoor Spaces in Adverse Conditions

Instead of ignoring your outdoor spaces until it’s time for spring cleaning, take the opportunity to closely inspect how your outdoor spaces handle things like freeze-thaw cycles, rain, snow, and those high Sierra winds. This is the best opportunity to identify issues with your irrigation and drainage, especially in you’re planning big construction changes like pavers or an outdoor kitchen.

Here at Harris Landscape Construction, we enjoy working on outdoor projects of all sizes and budgets. Contact us today, and let’s make a plan to get your project handled properly during the off-season so you’ll be ready to enjoy warmer weather when it arrives.
