The holidays: we decorate, gift wrap, and worry about whether the presents we tied up with bows were the right choice or not. In the rush to finish everything on time, the season usually flies by, and we’re sometimes left wondering whether the effort was worth it. Making your landscape look merry and bright is just one of the many tasks we dedicate ourselves too during the holidays – and we’d like to provide a few tips to create a yard that looks great well after the decorations are back in storage and the New Year in full swing. Read below to find out more:
A little live garland has a way of making your home look like an instant classic. Whether you use it draped around doorways, wrapped around banisters, or as a centerpiece, greenery is festive for any time of year. A trumpet vine, grape vine, or, of course, a little boxwood or fir are great garden plants that you can bring indoors to decorate.
Making Seasons Bright
Outdoor lighting: it’s not just for holiday time. Whether you want ambiance on your backyard patio during late-night entertaining, a well-lit path to your front door, or dramatic spotlights on architectural features and pretty plants, lighting in your landscape is practical year round. Candles lighting your windows add a romantic and old-fashioned glow from the inside out, too.
Sure, red and green are the old standby in Christmas colors, but blue and silver make great holiday decorating hues, too. Whether you keep them outside or make arrangements indoors, dusty shades of these colors create a cool looking space no matter the season. Whether it’s Blue Spruce, Blue Star, Curry Plant, Dusty Miller or otherwise, blue and silver foliage looks festive all year.
