1. ADD SOME COLOR
Dead and dormant plants meant that winter landscapes are often drab and boring. Combat this by adding some color to your yard. Grab your paintbrush and paint your gates or doors a bright color. This adds a nice pop to the dull winter landscape, and will also contrast nicely when lush green returns to your yard in the spring.
2. FOCUS ON YOUR HARDSCAPES
3. ADD A FIREPIT
What’s better than snuggling up in a blanket next to a warm fire during a crisp autumn night? Create a warm oasis in your yard with a new fire pit. Pile up some wood and surround your fire pit with chairs and warm wool throws to create a new go-to hang out spot.
4. ADD A FIREPIT
During the summer time, birds often go unnoticed amid the green of a lush landscape design. But birds are the unsung hero of the winter landscape. Their funny antics are easily visible among the bare stems, adding activity and color to your winter garden. One way to bring birds to your garden is include a water source, like a bird bath, where they can get a steady supply of water when the weather turns cold. However, make sure to include a layer of sticks or stones over the dish so that the birds can drink without getting wet, which can be dangerous as temperatures drop.
