Been having a hard time dealing with your landscaping in the winter? You might think that winter gardening seems like a nightmare and that most of your plants won’t survive the cold, but this isn’t necessarily true. There are a lot of features in a garden that can look pretty good and spruce up your garden all throughout the year. Some plants have the ability to adapt and can even to well in winter temperatures. In this article we’re going to go over a couple of points you should know if you’re planning on making a good winter garden that allows you to appreciate your garden all year round.
If you want your garden to do well through the winter, you won’t be able to just sit around and hope that all your plants will survive. But there are ways to make a garden that will keep itself alive through the winter. A good-looking garden will contain a variety of plants that bring different features, colors and textures to make an aesthetically great garden. The use of rocks, wood, and stones adds a lovely vibe to almost any garden, particularly in the colder months of the year.
There are quite a few plants that thrive in the winter, such as cedar trees, spruces, and pines. These even look great when topped off with a bunch of snow. They grow a lot slower than other trees, but they will stay green throughout the year. They still require fertilizer and water so they can grow through the winter. You can also get wintergreen boxwoods, which can be used as a short hedge. Make sure the wintergreen boxwoods get enough sun so they can grow healthily. Coral Bark Maples have bright colored branches that provide a lovely addition to a winter garden. Paper Bark Maple has exfoliating bark that makes a winter time garden look particularly great, even though it doesn’t bloom or keep its leaves in winter.
These are just a few of the possible options that you can use to make yourself a fantastic, colorful, an aesthetically pleasing winter garden that you can enjoy all year round.
