Are You Planning Your Landscaping During The Winter Months?

by Annie Hawkins

What would make more sense than choosing the winter months to plan your landscaping for 2019? Even though it might be too cold for you to enjoy the outdoors, that certainly doesn't mean that you can't plan how your yard will look when spring and summer arrive. From making an evaluation of this year's landscaping to selecting an outdoor fence, here are some ideas that might help you as you plan your landscaping during the winter months.

Make A Detailed Evaluation - Think of setting up an accordion file where you can store ideas that you want to incorporate in the next few months. Pay attention to detail as you collect items that you will include in the file. For example, perhaps you have decided that you have spent too much time and too much money watering your extensive lawn. In that case, consider writing down that you want to include a hardscape in your garden design. Write down the details that will go with that idea.

For example, you might want to note that you'll be purchasing things like brick, flagstone or pebbles for the hardscape. You may want to write down plants that flourished during the warmer months. Write down the names of those plants so that you can buy them again next year. Remind yourself to add things like decorative birdhouses or hanging ferns that will give more interest to your garden.

Arrange For An Outdoor Fence - As part of your plan, have you been thinking of buying an outdoor fence? Perhaps you have grown tired of neighbor's dogs using your grass as their very own outhouse. Maybe at your last homeowner's meeting, an announcement was made that theft has increased in your neighborhood. For whatever reason, you have decided that you want to add a fence, consider the kind that you want.

For example, if you want something very traditional, consider choosing an old-fashioned white picket fence. If you want something more dramatic, consider selecting a wrought iron fence that has an intricate pattern in the design. Choose something special for the gate, too. For example, if you live in the country, you might want to incorporate deer into the wrought iron design. If you are in the suburbs, you might want your gate to include the first initial of your last name. You can even name your house and incorporate the name into your gate. For example, you might decide on The Oaks for the name of your house. Those words can be part of the design of your outdoor fence.

For years, I thought that the best furniture was items you didn't have to pay very much for. I spent a lot of time looking for different pieces online, but I was constantly surprised by how poor the quality was with some of the items I purchased. Fortunately, I realized this pretty early, and I started looking for furniture that would actually stand the test of time. I found a beautiful sofa and love seat a few weeks later from a nice furniture store, and the difference was astounding. Furniture is one of those things that really matters, so check out this website to learn more about finding pieces you will love.
