Walking on the lush green grass and soaking in the warm sun, you can’t help but stare up at the rich blue sky. The leaves rustle in the breeze as the clouds roll by. Looking around the backyard, the flowers are just starting to bloom along the pergola while birds and butterflies flit to and fro. A quick slip on the ice jolts you out of your blissful imagination. The cold, harsh reality hits you as you regain your balance. (Sighs)……it’s still winter! If you’re like me, you’re tired of winter and wish that spring were here now already.

One thing that will help winter go by faster is to start planning for spring. You are probably thinking about all the things that you want to do once the weather starts getting warm again. Remember, good things come to those who wait…but better things come to those who PLAN! From first-timers to already-established backyard owners, here is an outline of what you can do to plan your yard for the spring!

Before anything else, grab a piece of paper and map out your yard. This can be as simple as a quick, 2-minute sketch with a pencil or you can go more in depth with colors and diagrams such as this one here.

Now, decide what kind of backyard you have/want and what kind of improvements you want to make. Consider what kind of hobbies you have and how you can best maximize your backyard. If you have a big family, you may want to have a large open area with grass for kids to play. Perhaps you can add a playground and/or some large trees to climb on.  If your interests lean more towards gardening, you can make it beautiful by adding pathways between the rows or by strategically placing your plants to create a beautiful arrangement. Whatever your circumstances may be, there is always something that can be added or developed. However, the most important aspect to consider is what type of timber structure you want.

We have something for everyone and every back yard, no matter the size, shape, or texture. For example, we can build a trellis for your garden, an awning for over your garage/doorway, a pavilion for your patiowhatever you want, we’ll make it for you!
