Landscape design is a year round affair. Each season allows for different shades of color, shapes, fragrance and focal points. Winter need not be a let down from the beautiful foliage of Autumn days. In fact, winter is an opportunity to appreciate the details in your landscape often overlooked during the warmer months.
Winter interest isn't just limited to the more brilliant foliage of conifers during winter months. Varieties of trees and shrubs can show off anything from sculptural branching to textural or unique bark color. An assortment of ornamental grasses and perennials offer the softer side of structure and Winter interest in the landscape while providing seed heads to feed the birds through the winter months.

With some forethought and design, your winter landscape will be another wonderful season in the garden.
