We only have a little over a month left of winter! If you are antsy to bring color back into your landscaping before the official start of spring, Great Estates Landscaping has some colorful ideas for you! Georgia is lucky to experience more mild winters; thus making it possible for a variety of plants and shrubs to survive, and even bloom, during the winter.
Camellias, Winter Jasmine, Wintersweet, Mahonias, Witch Hazels, Pansies and Violas are only some of the plants that can sustain during the winter. Not only can these plants withstand the winter season, they can, at certain times, even thrive in the cold weather. These different plants are the perfect way to transition a dull, brown landscape into a bright, colorful one. Not only will they brighten your landscaping during the winter, but they will continue to do so when spring arrives.
Along with the plants listed above, Evergreens are another great way to incorporate color into a dismal, winter landscape. You can easily brighten your landscaping by adding evergreens to it. It is a common thought that evergreens are only green; however their colors can vary from an array of greens, to blues, and even yellows! Evergreens also bring a fresh scent along with their large array of colors.
Spicing up your winter landscaping may not be as complicated as you would think. Adding a few different plants around your landscaping is the simplest way to brighten up your mood! Get rid of your winter gloom and say hello to winter bloom just by using our advice from this article. Happy planting!
