The holiday season is here. Neighbors and community business are decking the halls and putting up spectacular lighting displays. With careful holiday landscape planning, you can make your property the life of the party this holiday season. The first thing you can do is introduce a fire pit to your yard or patio. It is perfect for keeping family and friends nice and toasty for outdoor holiday festivities. To make it extremely welcoming, use wool throws on the patio chairs to keep everyone warm by the fire. Serve up some BBQ dinners and camp-style s’mores to really create a fun and loving environment. From there, you have to focus on which plants and flowers will bring your winter wonderland to life.
When shopping for plants and flowers for the winter holidays, you need to shop for winter-blooming perennials and beautiful shrubs. A great shrub to plant during the winter is leatherleaf mahonia, the shrub goes beautifully with Daphne bholua Jacqueline Postill as the fragrant flower is a lovely evergreen. Add additional shrubs to your landscape which can endure harsh winters. Be sure not to forget the winter jasmine, which bloom in January to make perfect splash of color just in time for the end of the winter holiday season. The winter jasmine looks best in retaining walls and along banks. Use this floral blooms to your advantage. Or get creative with Jelena witch hazel flowers, which have a beautiful coppery orange color.
You can warm up your exterior look just as much as your interior by enhancing your exterior’s natural beauty. Quality illumination can help you make beautiful outdoor fixtures more elegant. For example, you can illuminate intricate tree branch and along with lighting your front door. Use your weatherproof summer pottery and put evergreen branches, boughs and berries inside them. Don’t forget to dress up your doorways with your favorite holiday decorations. It’s one of the best ways to give holiday guests a great first impression of your winter holiday decor.
