Winter is on the way, and though you may have prepared for fall, you might want to think about how you can change up your landscaping for winter. After all, many plants that thrive in the summer fall prey to the ice of winter. Now, there are some plants and ideas that you can incorporate to keep your landscaping gorgeous even when the temperature drops. Are you ready to learn more? Well, here we go!
Utilize your trees.
Though grass and little plants often freeze and fade, trees can stand up to some pretty hard climates. Now, you can keep your trees looking their best by making sure that they are getting the nutrients they need, but the thing you really want to think about is the bark. The bark of your trees is going to be a major focus of your landscaping design.
Remember the colors.
Colors always give landscaping design a pop. Winter time is the perfect time to utilize accents. Berries and holy bushes can bring out the Christmas spirit that you’ll come to love in December. There are many different kinds of berries that you can bring out, so you have some options.
Don’t forget about hardscaping.
Hardscaping is not alive, therefore it isn’t going to be deeply affected by the change of the seasons. Winter is the perfect time to really let your hardscaping features shine. It might even be a good time to add something new like a pathway or patio. Just make sure to keep it clean so that it doesn’t become a slippery hazard once the ice hits!
