Autumn and winter may seem like a quiet time for Calgary garden and landscaping enthusiasts. But, while it’s true there is less manual labour to accomplish, this is an important time for planning and ensuring your garden and yard starts off spring strong. So as the leaves (and soon the snow!) blow around outdoors, curl up with a cup of tea (or stronger beverage of your choice) and start thinking about next year!
Have you been considering adding an outdoor patio, kitchen, or deck for a few years now? Outdoor kitchens, in particular, have become extremely popular. Centering around the barbeque, a sophisticated set up offers ample prep space and a luxurious atmosphere for cooking and entertaining during the summer months. With several months before the ground thaws, now is a great time to create a budget, decide which features you want, and consider which part of the yard should be transformed. We recommend choosing a spot that gets good shade during the evening. Also make sure you won’t have problems with water pooling in the area.
Come Up with a Plan.
With this year’s landscaping and gardening successes (and challenges) fresh in mind, now is the perfect time to evaluate what worked well and what needs improvements. Take a hard look at both your front and back yard; is everything meeting your needs? If not, it’s time to dream up your perfect backyard oasis. You’ll have all winter to hash out the details and decide which parts of the plan you’ll be implementing come spring.
