Your garden is not something that can only be enjoyed in the warmer months of the year. Even if your climate is too cold to really make use of your outdoor space, you’re still looking at it through the glass from within your house. So it makes sense to have some elements in the garden that give a bit of winter flair. Here are 7 winter landscaping tips to help you achieve that goal.
Choose Plants That Bear Fruit In The Winter
There are many shrubs and trees that produce fruit or berries during the winter. These plants can help bring small dots of color to a white, wintery landscape.
Popular choices include crabapples and hawthorns. Crabapples are typically planted for their colorful flowers. However, they also produce berries that remain throughout the winter. The fruit of the crabapple may be red, yellow, or gold, depending on the variety.
Hawthorns are small trees that produce flowers in the spring and bear fruit in the fall. As the temperatures start to drop, the fruit turns red and remains in place throughout the winter.
Planting these trees or shrubs throughout your yard will ensure that you always have color during the winter. They also provide strong focal points that you can build around as you select other plants.
