So, you’ve decided to dive in and get going on the outdoor renovation you’ve been dreaming about. It’s time to finally turn that dream into a reality! However, before you sign that contract and start digging up your lawn, take a quick look at the calendar. Time of year is rather important when it comes to starting your outdoor renovation here in Oklahoma, and there’s a few reasons why.
If the main reason you’re renovating your outdoor space is to have a fun place to hang out during the summer, getting started in April isn’t going to be the best option because it won’t be done in time to take full advantage of it. However, if you’re just looking to add a firepit or hot tub to your back patio, those additions can be enjoyed during any time of year and may loosen up those time restrictions.
Just remember to reflect on why you’re doing this project, and make sure the timeline fits in with those purposes.
The weather can have a big impact on the timeliness of the construction as well as the plants themselves.
Hard, frozen ground and cold, wet conditions can cause challenges that slow down the progress of construction. You may also run the risk of new flowers, trees, or grasses freezing and dying before they are even able to grow roots.
Tornado season is something we have to consider as well, especially here in Oklahoma. Is it worth getting started on a project if the beginning stages are in danger of being torn down by strong winds or tornadoes?
At the end of the day, the best time to get started on your outdoor renovation depends on a lot of factors that are unique to your project. These are just a few of many things to consider, so go ahead and call a Red Valley outdoor renovation specialist, they will be able to help walk you through what will work best for you.
