4 Beautiful Options to Continue Your Landscaping Through Winter
  • Opening Intro -

    As the warmer weather months quickly draw to a close, the long, cold months of winter lie ahead.

-------------------------------------

Beyond the temperatures, though, one of the toughest aspects of winter is the fact that everything turns essentially the same color, with the sky, the landscape, and even cars all taking on a dull gray color. Anything you can do, then, to break up this monotony will provide a welcome respite from the plainness of winter. Here are a few suggestions to help you do just that with your home’s winter landscaping.

Bushes of Berries

During the warm months, bushes can be beautifully crafted to create stunning landscape masterpieces that serve to define various spaces around your home. The best bushes, though, continue to add beauty to your home throughout the year through the appearance of berries as the weather turns colder.

Berries in blue, red, and other hues can provide an unexpected and welcome pop of color to your landscape, providing visual interest on the grayest of days. Even better, these berries often attract wildlife that can aid your landscape even more.

The Shapes Have It

Do you know all those elements of your landscape that make it more enjoyable during the summer? Elements such as benches, barrier walls, arbors, and other similar components? The good news is that these elements, in addition to making your summer more enjoyable, also help make your winter landscape more visually interesting.

When snow accumulates on these various landscaping supplies, you will be treated with interesting drifts and designs that wouldn’t exist if these elements weren’t present. If you want to be able to use the furniture on your patios, you can always brush the snow off to add some variety to your yard. The next time you splurge on a new hardscape element, then, consider it an investment in the year-round enjoyment of your landscape.

Life in the Winter

Evergreen trees are a great way to provide a constant source of green in the middle of a winter landscape. Whether you’re looking for smaller trees to place closer to your home or larger varieties that can take over an entire yard, there is no lack of different kinds of these beautiful hardwoods.

Even better is that many species of evergreen trees produce pine cones that you can collect and use in an endless variety of craft projects. Another benefit is the interesting shapes created by the trees when they are covered in a blanket of snow.

Lighting

While not specifically a landscape element, unique exterior lighting can certainly help drive those winter blues away. What better way to combat those long, cold nights than by coming home to a beautifully lit exterior.

You can highlight certain elements, such as trees and unique architectural elements, or you can wash your entire yard in light, ensuring that you and your neighbors can enjoy your majestic winter landscape throughout the night. Spotlights or pathway lights will help you to achieve the look you are aiming for.

Early Arrivals

Another great way to fight through the winter monotony is to ensure you utilize plants that bloom early in the spring. As winter finally is soaked up by the warm spring days, you will be ready with plenty of color and an interesting landscape that announces spring’s arrival. This helps you to have a beautiful and engaging yard year-round, without having to wait for Mother Nature to cooperate.
