Completing New Home Construction In Winter


For those of you who build with winter. What do you do for landscaping when completing in the winter months? Install out of sequence and try to protect it, provide a credit or install in the spring even though house may be sold...?

I have never had a problem with it, I just do it the same as I would during summer and spring...

Wait til spring,winter protection is cumbersome enough for the building,without throwing landscaping into the mix.

Important thing to do is get the site shaped and graded so it sheds water before bad weather hits, then don't let crews working around the building perimeter tear it up. Let the client hold a few dollars, then go back soon as weather permits and do the landscaping.
