Benefits Behind Planning a Hardscape in the Fall

Fall has arrived. Have you planned your hardscape?

Commonly, people plan their hardscape in the springtime, because they have all summer and spring to work on it. However, planning a hardscape in the fall has its benefits as well. Today we’re going to share what those benefits are with you. It’s not too late! Keep reading!

Colder Air and Warm Soil Helps Flowers to Grow

Because it’s hot in the summer, the heat from the sun can deprive your flowers. Also, during early spring, it often rains a lot, meaning that your garden isn’t getting the sunlight that it may need either. When fall arrives, the soil is still warm enough to provide nutrients to flowers, but the colder air helps to retain moisture. Also, there won’t be a race for your flowers to bloom. When spring rolls around, your flowers will bloom, and you won’t have to prepare them.

Masonry in the Summer Can Be Exhausting

Doing anything amid the summer heat can be exhausting, let alone putting down stonework. It’s a labor-intensive task and takes a lot of energy when the sun is beaming down. With temperatures dropping during the fall, not only will you be more comfortable, but the ground will be more level and even. During the fall, the ground keeps its moisture, meaning that you can easily manipulate the soil because it’s more malleable. Putting down stonework is an easier task during this season. Work smarter, not harder, by putting stonework down during the fall. Here at Trenton Block, we have a multitude of building tools and masonry supplies that will help you bring a hardscape to life. 


During the summer, you can spend time doing research, planning out a budget, and making sure that your hardscape is not only affordable and functional, but you can also get the opinions about its aesthetics. Ask family, friends, and neighbors if your plan for your hardscape is pleasing to the eye.
