Winter Landscaping Ideas: Adding Color and Interest to Your Brighton Yard

You should not allow winter to turn your Brighton yard into a gloomy, empty and desolate place, just because the weather is icy, snowy or gloomy. Your yard can still look delightful even in the cold season!

Winter can be a good opportunity to put your imagination to work and give your garden a new, welcoming and warm, even cheerful look. There are a few landscaping tricks that will help you bring it to life this season.

Brighten certain areas of the yard

It is very easy to light up an area of the garden, a tree, shrub, or a landscaping decoration, using a garden reflector. In this way, you will not only attract attention in that area, but the snow will also spread the light throughout the yard. You can also hang lanterns in the trees, or place them along the alleys. White lights hung from a beautiful fence adds a sense of whimsy as well.

Use decorations in the spirit of the winter holidays

A trellis or pot in which you create an aesthetic arrangement using kinds of vegetable materials such as fir branches, dried leaves and twigs, cones, nuts and acorns, and place it in a visible and friendly position, can cheer up the atmosphere.

Evergreens in brightly colored containers

Certain plants remain green in winter, adding a welcomed splash of color. In addition, some of them can be grown in containers painted in bright colors, which will have an even more cheerful effect against the white background of snow, or the gloomy gray background of warmer winter days.
