Landscaping in the winter often seems like a pointless exercise. After all, winter is when plants die, so what is there to tend to? In fact, there’s quite a lot to care for in the colder months. With the right kind of attention, proper planting, and maintenance, you can turn a barren yard into a winter wonderland. Lehnhoff’s landscaping is here with some tips to help you turn your Baltimore yard into a frozen paradise.
Don’t Think About Leaves
When planting trees that you want to shine in the Baltimore winter season, don’t think about their foliage, instead turn your focus towards the bark. While deciduous trees may lose their leaves during the winter, their bark can often serve as a pleasing and visually varied source of appeal. Dogwoods and birch trees are a great selection for a winter landscape.
Buy into Berries
Large amounts of trees and shrubs have berries that they will hold onto through the fall and long into the winter. Not only can these bright berries provide a burst of color in an otherwise pale landscape, they can also provide food for birds nesting in the area, bringing some much needed life and cheer during the cold Baltimore winter.
As their name suggests, evergreen plants and trees will stay beautiful throughout the year, regardless of the winter. But you’re not just limited to the standard green of a Douglas fir. Gold Thread cypress provides a lovely pale yellow year round and dwarf blue-spruces can inject your Baltimore landscape with a beautiful blue. Evergreens can form the bedrock of an amazing winter landscape, offering color and variety year-round.
