Upon the completion of your residential construction project, your property will likely be barren and contrast with the aesthetics of your home's exterior. One of the final steps associated with completing your transition into homeownership is the upgrading of your land.
Trees, shrubs, sod, bushes, and hardscaping materials may be supplied through a landscaping delivery service. Your general contractor or the team of landscapers who will be installing the materials may request that landscaping materials be ordered first and that the delivery of the goods be conducted in stages.
Some landscaping work may need to be conducted before the first freeze of the year. Temperatures that are above freezing will support the stabilization of young trees, shrubs, and other types of plant life that are being added to your property. The team you have hired to install the materials will recommend native tree, bush, and plant varieties that will complement the style of your home and the size of your property.
The zoning of your land may aid with determining where various landscaping features will be set up. For instance, if your property line is relatively close to a neighbor who lives next to one side of your home and you are certain that you would like to add a rock path along the property, your contractor will determine how much room you have to work with. If space is lacking, you may be advised to place some features in an area that is more supportive of the upgrades.
The Installation of Materials
Ordering landscaping supplies in advance is important. Popular products may sell out quickly or may only be available at specific times of the year. If there are any materials that won't be readily available, you may need to select some alternate products that are similar to the ones you initially chose. Your contractor or landscaping team will orchestrate the delivery of the materials. Each delivery will coincide with the proposed installation steps that have been prepared.
Metal edging may be installed across your property. The edging will outline where various landscaping materials will be placed. As the materials are delivered, they will be arranged in each outlined section. The last step of your landscaping project may involve the laying of sod. Sod pieces will be unrolled and secured to the bare parts of your property that have not already been landscaped.
