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 for your garden in winter:

  • 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.
