You can view winter landscaping from the bare minimum of basic maintenance necessary to keep your yard vibrant enough to emerge, reborn, next spring. If this is the approach you take, a landscape maintenance plan is the best investment you can make that will make your money count the most for all essential services necessary to keep your plants alive and your water features functional.
In addition to the very basics, however, there is a lot that you can have Exterior Worlds do for you that will magnify the curb appeal of your property now. Our part of Texas is very temperate, so it only gets very cold here when north winds blast down from the Arctic. Otherwise, the temperatures here are mild enough to allow all manner of ornamental grasses, ground covers, bushes, trees, and flowering plants to maintain a vibrant presentation year round.
A professionally designed winter landscaping plan implemented now can make your home look the best in the neighborhood, just in time for the arrival of all of your Christmas and New Years guests. It can also give add an attraction factor to your home that could one day bring you a return on your investment should you ever sell the house. You never know who may be driving through your neighborhood over the holidays that may be so impressed with the way your property looks that they remember it clearly if they ever see it listed on the market.
Winter landscaping ideas can include all three major elements of professional Houston landscaping services. Landscape architecture such as outdoor kitchens, swimming pool houses, and garden pavilions can be constructed during this time of the year provided that the weather is not too rainy for us to work.
Even if it is too wet to build these structures, building better drainage systems and permeable hardscapes will better enable us to construct more stable structures in the future. Softscape designs can be particularly improved during this time of year because so many trees and bushes are best planted at this time, and because there are many winter blooming plants that can paint your yard with vitality even when the rest of the Houston landscape looks drab and dead.
While you may want to wait on the construction of outdoor buildings, you do not want to omit drainage and erosion control mechanisms from any winter landscaping services you contract us for. If we have a rainy winter, you can lose a great deal of soil and plant material if measures are not taken now to filter water into the ground through permeable paver hardscapes or concealed drainage systems.
We do not want to emphasize the negative here, though. Basic proactive measures are all we need to ensure lasting curb appeal is maintained in both front yard and back yard spaces. Additionally, with the construction of better drainage, better hardscapes, and new outdoor structures comes opportunity to magnify the beauty of trees, bushes, shrubs, and flowers.
Winter landscaping has always included the introduction of many trees species that are best planted at cold times of the year. There are also scores of ground covers and winter flowering perennials that can transform a very drab yard into a display of color that rivals Christmas decorations in neighboring properties.
