A custom deck should match your home’s design and your entertainment style, which is why working with experienced landscapers is important. But can you build a custom deck during the winter? Yes, you can! In fact, it may be one of the best times to build one. Let’s look at five reasons why.

More Affordable Materials

Building materials, especially lumber, are in demand during the “building season” in spring and summer. Some projects, like decks, can be built in the off-season when materials aren’t as expensive. Choosing to build in the winter may be more cost-effective.

Contractor Availability

Contractors are also in high demand during the spring and summer. Scheduling your project could mean that you end up on a list. When you are eager to use your new deck, this is frustrating. Winter months are slower and usually mean your deck project gets done faster.

No Time Crunch for Permits

Busy contractors are only one way your project may get delayed during the busy season. Building permits are also needed, so waiting to start the project in spring could mean weeks of prime weather passing by. Beginning this process in winter means you have much more time to secure them without missing a thing.

Less Yard Damage

The constant foot traffic and hauling of materials in and out of your yard could damage areas of your yard. However, during the colder weather of winter, the ground is firmer, helping to limit this damage. The grass and other features also have plenty of time come spring to bounce back.

Enjoy Your New Deck in Spring

A winter deck project ensures you have plenty of time to go through the planning stages, secure permits, order building materials and other essential steps so you can enjoy it come the first beautiful days of spring weather. Oh, and start planning that first party to unveil the new project to friends, family and the neighborhood.

Maxwell did a great job installing our outdoor patio and firepit and finished ahead of schedule. When a few minor adjustments need to be made after the project was finished, Troy was very responsive, kept in touch, and had the adjustments made perfectly. Highly, highly recommend!

Christine Tobias

Was very pleased with the level of customer service. I had rock, fill dirt, and mulch delivered. When I arrived I was greeted quickly, they helped me make informed selections, and they delivered immediately. Cost of products was competitive. Will absolutely be coming back here for all of my landscaping/hardscaping needs.

Judy Breeding

Absolutely wonderful experience-Paul and Justin went extra mile to get my paver patio just right. They were pleasant and professional. Several neighbors commented on how neat and careful they were. Troy was especially helpful in every way. Highly recommend!!!

Drew Culbreth

Top Notch company....Reliable and Predictable work. I would put the skill and the results of this company against anyone. The outcome of projects always surpasses the expectation. Troy is great to work with and a stand up guy. Wouldn't want anyone else working in my yard.

Mike Stiene

Matt and Dave installed a beautiful hardscape Belgard wall in our front yard. We would highly recommend Troy and his crew to everyone. Thank you Maxwell Landscaping


Very happy with out outdoor fireplace. When you design a hardscape and its your first one a lot of trust goes to the contractor, especially with the larger area we decided to construct(20x20 w a 6ft fireplace, pavers and large natural stones). We felt very confident in Troy the owner of maxwell landscaping and he did everything to our requests. The job went as planned and his crew arrived when promised and since we had good weather the project was completed quicker than expected. Troy went beyond my expectations and the job estimate remained the same at the end. His crew did an excellent cleanup and I was impressed. To find a contractor in our area who is knowledgable, dependable, and honest is invaluable to me and I plan on using Troy again in the future. Dr Ed Scott and Dr Erin Scott
