Start Thinking About Your Summer Landscaping Now
January 24, 2017
Whether you embrace winter by hitting the trails, or push through with help from thoughts of sunny beaches, now is the perfect time to consider your landscaping. The dull grays and browns of winter may inspire ideas for a unique landscape design which could include colorful plantings, a stone patio, stone walkways, a water feature and more. You can also plan your Vermont landscaping so that there are still elements that add aesthetic to your yard in the winter, such as Winter Berry, Harry Lauder’s Walking Stick, Red Twig Dogwood, evergreens and masonry. Winter is also a good time to observe how your yard handles rain, cold and foot traffic to determine if there are any irrigation, drainage or runoff problems that should be addressed. Rain gardens, drip edge, and retaining walls are just a few solutions to these problems.
