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.
