Did you know that a good landscape design can increase your visual enjoyment of the winter landscape? In Minnesota, particularly the Twin Cities of Minneapolis – St. Paul, we expect much snow during the winter. In this blog, we are going to focus on how to enhance your landscape view in Minneapolis during the winter. The following landscaping methods to improve your winter view are as follows:
- Lighting Landscaping
Uplighting or downlighting on trees enlighten your landscape views during the winter. In addition, with low-voltage lighting you can see at night wildlife such as raccoons, foxes, skunks, birds, squirrels and deer.
- Outdoor Covered structure
If you’d like to barbecue or use the hot tub in winter, consider building an outdoor covered structure such as gazebo, pergolas, and squired canopy to keep them free of snow. If you like to enjoy looking at the landscape or bird watching, a heated and insulated sunroom can allows you to enjoy outdoor living without the frostbite during the winter.
- Winter Shrubs Landscaping
In winter when perennials are dormant, the winter shrubs that provides color in the winter landscape bring accents and beauty even when covered with snow.
