Throughout the spring and summer your yard and home come to life with beautiful blooming flowers, green grass and a landscaping that is fully alive. Then in the fall you can at least count on a few flowers and the beautiful colored leaves. Once winter arrives, your homes curb appeal starts to suffer. Short and cloudy days don’t help the situation. There are plenty of things that you can do to help the beauty of your yard and home throughout the winter months. Since the evenings are longer, add light around your home and to your landscaping to brighten things up and even highlight specific areas of interest. You can still get color, even in the winter. Plant bushes that have colored bark, in some climates you can plant pansies, or you can plant deciduous shrubs that stay green all year along. Another strategy is to draw people’s attention away from the landscaping. You can create a focal point that looks good every season featuring something like a fountain or small pond. Bright colors on your front door, trim, shutters and mailbox also help add to your curb appeal during the winter months. The ideas and options really become endless, if you just take a step back and look at your home and landscaping. If you need more inspiration, keep reading below. Just a warning…your to do list is going to keep growing if you keep looking.
