A beautiful landscape is possible, even when it’s cold outside. Here are a few tips on how to make your yard stand out this winter.
You don’t have to sacrifice a gorgeous yard just because it’s not spring or summer. Winter landscaping can mean your yard stands out, even when everything isn’t green and blooming. Here are four tips for beautiful landscaping this winter.
Tip #1: Understand Your Planting Zone
Created by the USDA, Plant Hardiness Zones help determine what plants and trees will thrive in different areas of the country based on climate and temperature. Knowing your zone helps you plant things that will grow throughout the year. A good landscaping professional can help guide you on choosing the right things for your zone.
Tip #2: Don’t Stop Watering
Even when your yard appears dormant, it’s still growing and losing water. Winter water is an integral part of winter lawn care and can help your landscaping look great even during the colder months and stay healthy and strong year-round.
Tip #3: Plant for Winter Beauty
Trees such as crabapple and plants like holly look great in the winter because the fruit stays on the branches. Knowing what looks good in what season can help your yard stand out.
Tip #4: Install Landscape Lighting
One of the best ways to make your landscaping stand out in the winter is by including some landscape lighting. You can highlight what continues to thrive in the winter without emphasizing things that go dormant, such as your grass and flowers.
Winter lawn care can help your lawn and winter landscaping stand out, even when it’s cold outside. For the professional guidance you need to make your yard look great all year, contact the experienced team at W.P. Law, Inc.
