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.

  • With so much in my heart I am here to express myself on how Priest Salami saved my marriage from divorce. Myself and my husband were having some misunderstanding and it was tearing our marriage apart to the extent my husband was seeking a divorce. So I have no option other than to go to the internet to seek a solution to my problem. It was there I came across Priest Salami details and about how he has helped a lot of people by restoring their relationship. I contacted Priest Salami and in less than 48 hours my husband cancelled the divorce papers. Now myself and my husband live together in peace and harmony all thanks to Priest Salami for saving my marriage from breaking up. Priest Salami contact information are via email: purenaturalhealer@gmail.com. Whatsapp number: +2348143757229

  • I was really stressed by Acid reflux issues with my newborn and had consulted Chief Dr Lucky. He gave us a thorough consultation and the medicines were equally effective. In a couple of weeks there was big improvement in my son and we are very pleased with the progress. We cannot thank Chief Dr Lucky enough. Highly recommended.
