We Give You More Reasons to Stay Home!
We are spending more time at home now than ever before. Naturally, home improvement projects come to mind.
But should we invest in a landscape project at this time – especially during these daunting days of COVID-19? There’s no better time to make your home your favourite place. Here’s how you can do it affordably!
How to Make Your Home Landscape into a Private Haven now...
(even during a pandemic!)
The most personal and successful landscapes evolve over time to reflect the wishes and desires of its owner. We can have a wish list – but knowing where to start, how much it will cost, and how much of the work we can do ourselves, are valuable questions to consider at the outset.
It is also important to review priorities… what is the primary function or functions you want for your landscape, for example:
a place nestled in nature, perhaps an area of privacy for reading or reflecting
a garden you can enjoy or a landscape that will attract birds and insects
a place to entertain or have family gatherings, or an environment that invites children to explore and play
Adding trees and shrubs does not have to be expensive, but can create a visible or dramatic effect in your outdoor space. A simple change of grades from flat to contoured is another inexpensive way to bring about a new ambience.
At Urban Cottage Landscapes we welcome homeowners’ involvement in their landscaping projects and encourage a plan that focuses on adding features in stages over several years.
Installing in phases – over time – spreads out the cost of what might otherwise seem like an intimidating upfront financial commitment.
We will work with you on a plan and budget to stretch out the work and cost over time and in phases. This makes it easier on your pocketbook and provides a living landscape you can adjust over time.
