Winter is just around the corner, and with it comes the holly jolly holidays. Many American homeowners love to decorate their lawns during the holiday season to shine some light during the darkest time of the year. Winterizing your lawn keeps your landscape architecture and outdoor spaces looking nice all year round.
However, there are a variety of ways you can give your lawn the winter aesthetic you love without increasing your electric bill. Consider the following landscape projects for your outdoor space this winter to give your home that seasonal glow.
- Chestnuts roasting on an open fire pit. Fire pits are a great landscaping addition for the winter season. They’re also one of the top three most popular landscape design elements with a 74.9% popularity rating. Homeowners love a good fire at any time of the year, but especially in the chilly weather. Keep your guests warm with a fire pit designed with natural stone while surrounding it with chairs and fur throws for an additional winter flare. Your guests will love an old-fashioned mug of hot chocolate and a share s’mores in the comfort of your backyard.
- Winterize your garden. The weather outside may be frightful, but that doesn’t mean your garden needs to be. Consider contacting a landscaping service to find the right winter blooms for your yard. Camellias and hellebores, in particular, are some of the most popular winter flowers. Additionally, shrubs like red Cornus and hollies can add an extra bit of color and texture to any winter garden.
- Spice up your exterior entrances. Your garden isn’t the only thing that could use a bit of color during the holiday season. While adding to your landscape design, consider painting your fence or doors with a bit of color. Dark blues, reds, a soft green, or even silver can add just the right personality to your home for a festive atmosphere. If you’re unsure what color may go well with your landscape designs, consult your landscaping service for a professional opinion.
