Denver Landscaping Company Explains How to Improve Your Curb Appeal This Winter


January 11, 2017

Homeowners tend to think about landscaping during the spring and summer when flowers are blooming and the snow has melted away. But, according to Denver landscaping company, My Landscaper, you can still improve the curb appeal of your home with landscaping during the winter. Here are some tips to help you get a head start on your landscaping:

Choose the right flowers.

Although spring is associated with flowers blooming, it’s not the only season where flowers can bloom. In fact, there are dozens of flowers that will bloom during the winter, which will add color to your lawn in an otherwise dark and dreary season. Make sure you have a few of these flowers planted in your yard, especially in the area around your front door or the pathway leading up to your home. You could also surround your mailbox with these flowers to add instant curb appeal. See a list of flowers that bloom in winter.

Find plants with berries.

Some plants, such as the crabapple, will grow berries in the spring or summer and hold onto them throughout the cold winter months. Add these to your lawn for a tiny pop of color bursting through the bushes. Another bonus? Birds feed on these berries during the winter, so your lawn will be full of chirping birds and vibrant colors.

Light it up.

There is less sunlight during the winter, so it’s important to have the right amount of light in your yard. Install lighting features that illuminate the path from your driveway to your front door so visitors can easily find their way. Or, use lighting to highlight an intimate gathering space around a fire pit in your backyard. Lighting is a great way to make your home look more attractive during every season, but especially in the winter.

Create a focal point with hardscaping.

During the winter, people will pay much more attention to your hardscaping since the rest of your lawn may be covered in snow. That’s why it’s so important to plan ahead and create a focal point with your hardscaping. For example, if your garden will be buried underneath a few layers of snow, there should be a beautiful trellis or gazebo with a paver path that will distract from the snowy ground.
 

Plant evergreens.

Evergreens are associated with the winter, but they can actually add curb appeal to your home all year round. There’s nothing more beautiful than a yard with lush evergreens, especially in the winter when you can see the rich color of the plant poking out from underneath the snow. The best part? Despite the name evergreen, these plants do come in other colors, so you don’t have to stick to green if you already have a lot of greenery in your yard.
