Four Tips to Make Your Garden Interesting in Winter

Erin Grajek

When snow falls, your yard can look like a flat, blank piece of paper. Use these tips to add interest.

1) Include hardscapes

Hardscapes are the manmade, permanent garden features in your garden. An elaborate arbor or simple trellis can add height and structure.

2) Choose winter-proof ornaments

Statues and other garden ornaments that don’t collect water should be able to survive winter. (Fountains and bird baths need to be taken in because water expands when it freezes, which can produce cracks.) The copper ornament in the photo looks good with or without snow.

 

 

3) Leave perennials standing

Don’t cut down stalks in autumn. Perennials such as astilbe dry in place and look as lovely in the garden as they do in a dried arrangement. Tall grasses can add motion when the wind is blowing. And plants such as black-eyed Susans can offer food to overwintering birds.

4) Choose plants that add winter color

Look for evergreen trees and shrubs—green is a color, too! Heuchera can hold it leaves all winter, and there are many varieties with different colored leaves. Berries add a pop of color, too.

  • A GREAT SPELL CASTER (DR. EMU) THAT HELP ME BRING BACK MY EX GIRLFRIEND.
    Am so happy to testify about a great spell caster that helped me when all hope was lost for me to unite with my ex-girlfriend that I love so much. I had a girlfriend that love me so much but something terrible happen to our relationship one afternoon when her friend that was always trying to get to me was trying to force me to make love to her just because she was been jealous of her friend that i was dating and on the scene my girlfriend just walk in and she thought we had something special doing together, i tried to explain things to her that her friend always do this whenever she is not with me and i always refuse her but i never told her because i did not want the both of them to be enemies to each other but she never believed me. She broke up with me and I tried times without numbers to make her believe me but she never believed me until one day I heard about the DR.
