Cold Weather Landscaping – Landscaper Springfield MOGabris Landscaping
With colder weather, when we think of our yards, we likely picture dead foliage, decaying leaves, and snow trodden grounds. Mixed in with the blustery winds and the cold gray skies we often see during the winter, it’s not a pretty thought.
How do you landscape during colder weather? “You don’t” most people think. Fortunately, that’s simply not true. With the right landscaper, any season can be the perfect season to turn your yard into a masterpiece.
Tips for Creating a Beautiful Cold Weather Landscape
Creating an attractive landscape may seem like an impossible feat during the coldest months of the year, but with the right design elements, your home’s exterior can still be a thing of beauty. Forget about leafless trees and bloomless plants. With the following tips from our landscape design experts, your yard can be the envy of the neighborhood once again.
Consider planting cold weather blooms. Stick with four-season perennials and winter shrubs. Red cornus and hollies add striking interest against the graying winter landscape. And, if you can’t seem to find the blooms you enjoy, evergreen is a classic winter staple.
Rely on your hardscape. The solution to enhancing your cold weather landscaping is not necessarily about what you plant in your garden. A well-placed trellis, bench, or arbor can add character to your home’s exterior. And it will be a year-round centerpiece once winter is long gone. An outdoor fireplace can enhance the aesthetic of your outdoor space, while providing warmth and light for an outdoor gathering space.
Embrace color. Color is essential to a well-done landscape. But, if you can’t find colorful winter plants, you can always brighten up your hardscapes. Colorful outdoor furniture or accent pieces can provide the pop of color needed to bring an evergreen landscape to life.
Lighten up. In the winter months, our evenings are plagued with darkness a bit earlier than we’d like, which permits very few outdoor activities—until now. Shed some light on your outdoor space by installing fixtures that accent your home’s best landscaping features and create light for outdoor gatherings.
