Landscaping costs can add up quickly, especially in the fall months when leaves are raining down on your yard and trees need to be trimmed before the weight of snow. If you are looking for quality landscaping without the high cost, here are some of our best money saving landscaping tips.
Start Preparing for Spring Now
Many homeowners wait to start cleaning up their yard for the spring and summer until it’s too late. If you are waiting until your local home improvement store is stocking pruning supplies in March, you’re waiting too late! You can save a great deal of money and time if you start your spring landscaping preparations in the fall. Sharpen your landscaping tools and take the time to prune any dead growth in your yard. Be careful that you don’t damage any new buds that are simply waiting for sunnier days to emerge!
Edit During the Late Spring
Early spring is such a tumultuous landscaping period that many homeowners end up over-editing their yard before it’s fully grown in. Before updating and replacing any parts of your landscaping, you should wait until mid- to late spring. Once your landscaping starts to come back to life, you’ll have a more accurate idea of what you’re working worth.
Change Your Plantings Now
The best time to change up your plantings, contrary to popular belief, is during the fall. This will reduce costs and help to prevent losing plants during periods of extreme stress in the summer. In the fall, every plant in your yard has roots that are actively growing. Since the roots will easily regrow, it’s a great time to move plants and add new plants to your landscaping. Always water your plants well before giving them a move across your yard.
