Planning to overhaul your landscape is one thing, but the most time-consuming part of it all is the actual work. Whether you are doing it yourself, or are hiring professional landscapers in Kingsport, you will want to have a general idea for the timeline and when to expect results. Promier Landscapes wants to share how to factor the length of your project.
If you are working with a reputable landscape design company, the timeline and details should be discussed prior to beginning any work. At Promier Landscapes, we have more than a decade of experience, and usually, come close to forecasting the length of our projects. Here are the important points to consider when planning your project timeline.
Overall size of the project
Of course, the factor with the most significant impact is the overall size of the project. Designing and building the landscape of a small yard will take much less time than a huge commercial project for a business. Experienced landscapers should be able to gauge the length of your project based upon the size. What’s the scope of your project? If you are just having sod installed, it likely can be done in a day, depending on the size of your yard. If you are having an in-ground pool built, as well as sod, and pavers installed, it could take a couple of months to complete. Determining the entire scope of your project from the get-go will serve as a basis of your timeline.
Number of distinct elements
Distinct elements include custom fire pits, walkways, retaining walls, fountains, spas, and pools, as well as flowerbeds and tree beds. When it comes to custom landscape design, it isn’t one-size-fits-all. In fact, no two jobs are alike. Specific design elements, such as a custom fire pit, fountain, or pool, may take longer to complete than simply seeding some grass and planting flowers in a few beds. While distinct features can add beauty and function to your landscape, they will extend the length of your project. But, we assure you; it will be worth the wait!
Difficulty of the job site
Harsh landscapes or significant grades may be difficult to worth with, which means it may take more time to overhaul. A yard that has drainage issues is going to need proper drainage installed, and steep slopes may require heavy equipment to grade or reinforce. Therefore, keep in mind that the more difficult your terrain, the longer the project may take. While this is certainly not an obstacle for our pros, we just like our clients to understand that it may take a little longer to complete the project due to these circumstances.
Weather and employee variables are two factors that can result in unforeseen circumstances. Other unforeseen problems could arise from suppliers for materials, as well as deliveries. However, working with a reputable landscaping company in the Tri-Cities, like Promier Landscapes, can minimize these setbacks. We employ a dedicated team, and we work with suppliers that we can count on.
When we work with our clients, we discuss everything from the details of planning to the timeline and cost of the project. We don’t want there to be any surprises or setbacks for you or for our crew. If you would like to learn more or schedule a consultation, just call (423) 246-7977.
