Keep the Garden Lively

For more ideas, see our new slideshow on winter garden decor. Just because the garden is dormant in winter doesn’t mean it can’t be a lively place.

With a few well-placed ornaments and some nature-themed ideas, you can enliven a winter landscape. Here are some ideas:

  • Add lights whenever you can. Take advantage of shorter days and put them on a timer.
  • Use nature-inspired creativity, such as dried grass stalks, seedheads and vines.
  • Showcase garden decor, such as gazing globes, sculpture, tuteurs and trellises.
  • Encourage wildlife to visit by setting out birdfeeders and other attractions.

    Encourage wildlife to visit – that would be impossible for me. My lovely greedy cats are always on the lookout for prey.
