With care, gardens can thrive in winter snow and cold
Your yard and garden may be deeply asleep right now, but this is the perfect time to think of “winterscaping” your landscape.
After all, the Iowa growing season may be just eight or nine months long, but you look out of your windows and at your yard 12 months of the year. Why not make your winter landscape just as attractive to look at in February as it is in July?
A successful winter landscape is one that is pretty to look at even in the coldest month when nothing is actively growing. Think bare trees, evergreens, dormant perennials, berries and hardscape such as stonework or accents laid bare.
