There are great reasons why it’s smarter to perform your landscape design projects in the fall or early winter, as opposed to the summer months.
Cooler fall and winter temperatures are often better for planting new landscaping in the Bay Area. Trees, shrubs, and lawn grasses can all be planted easily, often with less stress on the transplanted landscaping plants and better conditions for them to take root and thrive without the need to water so much and protect them from unfavorable summer heat as they get established.

Fortunately with paving stones, paving contractors Bay Area do not need to be concerned about temperatures since the materials do not need to dry or set, they simply need to be graded and placed with care. With asphalt or concrete driveways and patios there are additional concerns related to temperature and humidity to ensure materials set properly, but that’s not an issue with patio pavers, which we specialize in.
