Start Planning Your Spring Projects Now

Winter is the ideal time to start planning your spring yard projects. With leaves and snow falling outside, dream about your perfect yard, new driveway, or firepit and have your design ready so when spring time comes you can get to work and enjoy your outdoor space.


As you’re out Trick or Treating with your kids this year and admiring the perfectly built driveways, well appointed walkways, and retaining walls filled with bright mums of your neighbors, now is the time to picture your home with those features. Curb appeal is a real; not only will it make your home beautiful for you to enjoy, but ultimately when you decide to sell your home it will increase its value by 5 to 11%.

Whether it’s adding detail to your driveway, creating a walkway to your front door surrounded by flower beds, or totally redesigning the front or backyard, now is the time to start thinking about it.


A beautiful yard is the result of good design and smart planning. A mixture of annuals, perennials, shrubs, and trees can look just okay or, with proper planning and expertise, can be visually stunning and make your yard a showpiece. Every yard and every design is unique based on budget, based on sun, based on your taste, and based on the size of your yard. As the snow starts to fall this winter, we want you to be dreaming about the first perennial blooms peaking through in springtime. A well-planned landscape design will have your yard filled with flowers from early spring all the way through the frost of fall.

Outdoor Living Areas

The possibilities are endless when it comes to outdoor living spaces. Decks, patios, pools, hot tubs, fire pits, gazebos, pergolas, kitchens, pools, and more. These spaces should be seen as extensions of your home and should seamlessly match the function and design of your indoor living areas. And just because you’re designing an outdoors space it doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice the amenities you enjoy inside; incorporate lighting, audio and visual, and comfort that you enjoy inside into your outdoor living space.

For more than 15 years the team at Design Works has designed and built projects across Nashua, Hudson, and Southern New Hampshire. We’d love to work with you and design your dream space! Contact us today to start the conversation.
