Did you know that you can have a beautiful yard year-round, even in the winter? Allow us to show you how. Get some great tips here on how to make the most out of your yard this winter!
Add Winter Plants
Even when it’s snowing outside, there are still ways to create an eye-catching garden that will turn heads. For example, adding evergreens, birch trees or red dogwood to your landscape can add a nice pop of colour against that white, snowy backdrop. Talk to your garden center about which plants or trees to include for a picturesque winter yard.
Complement with Lighting
Colourful LEDs can also bring your yard to life. By stringing some outdoor lights around your trees and putting up spotlights throughout your garden, you can brighten up the exterior and accent some of your standout winter foliage that’s on display.
Take Advantage of Your Hardscape
When you have unique architectural features and outdoor living areas, you should show them off even in the wintertime. That trellis you have is the perfect place to hang some winter lights or drape with garland. The gazebo or pool area can also be decorated to offer more warmth and atmosphere to your yard. Use the hardscape and softscapes to your advantage and they will transform your yard into a winter wonderland.
Prune Your Trees
Do you know what’s the opposite of a sight for sore eyes in the winter? Cracked and dangling branches. So be sure to get out the clippers and remove dead or damaged branches through the wintertime. In fact, pruning trees now can provide healthier, stronger trees come springtime.
Protect Your Lawn from Salt
If you don’t want any bare spots on your lawn this spring, now’s the time to install snow fencing to minimize the amount of salt that melts on your lawn. Another way to save your lawn from damage is to switch to a salt alternative like cat litter which is less harmful to your grass.
