With winter fast approaching, I wanted to address some options for landscaping. Although, it is not a time of the year when people think about their landscape, there are plenty of things that can be done to add some pizazz to your exterior. When done correctly, winter landscaping can create a winter wonderland!
Create a Fall Landscape with these fall landscaping ideas
Well, another season has come and gone. Now, you are probably getting your self ready for the fall and winter that is to come – cleaning gutters, winter proofing windows and doors, and raking the fallen leaves. But, what is one to do to have something nice to look at during those bare tree months?
A few years ago, I had a row of Little Gem Magnolias planted along the side of my driveway to serve as a screen for the garage area. I have been anxiously awaiting the day when these small trees would mature into a somewhat reasonable size. The first spring they did pretty well for a newly planted tree. Then, lo and behold, this past winter, a buck that loves to visit my yard nearly sheared one of these babies completely in half. (I call him Uncle Buck – because he is like the family member that you dread to have visit). 🤣
