Whether you’re looking to add a paver patio, outdoor kitchen or outdoor living space to your Knoxville-area home, or you’re ready to get a new landscape design to add plants and landscape lighting to your outdoor space, it’s important to get the timing right. Being in Knoxville, Tenn., landscape design and installation projects can be done during any season, but what’s the best time to do your next project?

Spring Planning Tip: Reach out to a landscape designer or landscaping contractor before February for work you intend to have done in the spring. By doing so, you’ll be more likely get a great price and ideal timing for installation since you’ll be one of the first on the busy spring schedule. Consider attending the Dogwood Arts House and Garden Show in February to meet with the many Knoxville landscape designers and contractors (including Carex Design Group!) who are there to meet with potential clients. Check out the shows from 2015 and 2016 here and here.
