Many people don’t realize that Panorama and most other full service landscape companies work year-round. Keeping key staff through the slow months is beneficial come the busy season. These professionals are invested in us, and their proven work methods and expertise is conducive to maintaining consistent quality, efficiency, and cost effectiveness for our customers.
Winter is actually a great time of year to begin the process of design/estimating for your springtime landscape projects. The design process begins with site analysis and a discussion of the “vision.” A visual inspection of your property will verify that the site conditions are accurately depicted on the property plans you may provide us, or will allow us to determine if your vision is realistic for the site and begin to prepare a plan if you don’t already have one. Our expert knowledge of the latest materials available enhances our ability to guide you in creating the desired space you have been dreaming of. Since many existing plants/trees are leafless, and neighboring views stand out more, our design team can also help you determine what privacy issues you may want to address that would not be as obvious in the summer months.
In the winter months, our landscape team is in the office more often, and design work happens with fewer interruptions and increased ease of communication among our staff. Once an estimate is accepted, and a deposit received, we can start the process of obtaining any necessary permits and locate orders. The demand on permit offices and locate services is much less during the winter months. Your project is also then positioned for a start date once the weather breaks.
Either a new property that is a clean slate or a renovation project would benefit from a head start in winter. If there is not too much snow on the ground, it’s a perfect time to start demolition or laying basic groundwork, even if planting is not possible. Plant and sod installations may then be scheduled so that they all have the cooler spring and early summer temperatures to take root, use less water, and still allow time for you to enjoy them throughout the summer!
