NEW YORK, NY, December 04, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Winter is one of the most beautiful times of the year, so it's important to highlight your landscape during this time. By following these tips, you can ensure your outdoor space will be beautiful, even when the temperatures are freezing and the sky is gray.
Protect Your Plants
It is very important to protect plants from the frigid winter temperatures. The garden should be thoroughly watered before the first frost hits. From there, shrubs or trees can be wrapped so they are protected from the elements. To make sure this is done properly so that all your plants are safe, we recommend hiring a professional team.
Just because it is winter does not mean your space cannot have color. Use plants that bloom in the winter to lift your spirit during cold months. Evergreens and winter hazel offer interesting color, shape and texture that help liven up your space at a time when other plants are not growing.
Install Landscape Lighting
Nothing brightens up your landscape like adding decorative lighting. Illuminate your building, walkways and statement pieces while showing your holiday spirit with light displays. On top of adding beauty to your space, lighting also adds safety and security. These gorgeous displays are sure to make everyone who sees them feel merrier this year.
Focus On Hardscape
Enhancing your garden may not require using any plants at all, but rather using hardscape elements. Winter is a wonderful time to critique your landscape in order to figure out where it is missing focal points. A sculpture, terrace or bench may be just what you need to complete your space.
Start Planning Now
Good design can take time as it is a creative process involving many elements. By planning during the winter, you will be ready to begin implementing your plans as soon as spring hits. It is highly recommended to consult with a professional to ensure your vision will be done right the first time.
