Make the Most of Your Landscaping During Cold Winter Months

By January 7, 2015No Comments

It’s that time of year where trees have lost their leaves and flowers stop growing. But that doesn’t mean our gardens still can’t be beautiful!  Here are a few tips to make sure you still love your garden no matter what season it is.

  1. Many decorative trees, such as dogwoods, have visually pleasing bark and texture.  So even without their leaves, they will still beautify your yard.
  2. Use your hardscape to create focal points in your yard. Lighting and deciduous elements will enhance your landscaping all year around.
  3. Trees such as crabapples and holly bushes still have berries even when it gets cold. These kinds of plants will add an elegant color against white snow.
  4. Evergreens make excellent decorative trees even in the winter. They are available in colors other than green, such as yellow and blue, and they keep their color year around.
  5. Use summer containers such as window boxes and hanging baskets. Fill these with rhododendrons and Japanese andromeda to add the perfect touch of color.

With a little ingenuity your outdoor garden can be a stunning canvas no matter what the season. Call the experts at Heinen Landscape year around to assist with your landscaping needs.
