Many people decide not to sell their homes in winter because their yards look depressing. Plants appear to be dying or in hibernation, and all the greenery is gone from your stunning feature trees. There’s no denying that winter weather can put a dampener on your mood and property’s attractiveness, but it doesn’t have to. Here are a few of the best winter landscaping ideas that can make your property shine in all seasons.
Keep Colour with Evergreens
Deciduous trees can transform a property in the warmer months of the year, but come winter; they are an eyesore. Deciduous trees lose all their leaves in winter and look but a mere skeleton of their former selves. You can avoid this problem by planting evergreens instead.
Evergreen trees, such as Silver Sheen and Leighton Green Conifer retain all their foliage throughout the seasons to keep your yard looking as vibrant as ever before.
Rely on Four-Season Perennials
Many gardeners dream of having their flowerbeds thriving and surviving in winter, but that’s not always the case. Many flowers and shrubs go into hibernation, and you’re left with a dull, brown and often-barren landscape that offers no appeal. When you are undertaking landscaping around your home, consider four-season perennials.
Star anise, aloe topaz, silver swan, and jelly bean plants are all examples of perennials that withstand wintry conditions and come out the other side looking lovely.
