White, grey, wet and dull. If this describes your landscape in the winter here in the midwest, and you’re looking to add splashes of color, here are some great ideas!
Trees with Colored Bark. Even when the leaves are gone, these trees can provide a splash of color and interesting shapes to the monotone landscape.
Beautiful and Bountiful Berries! Berries can add splashes of color throughout your landscape. Some good ones for the midwest region are Winterberries (available from ProvenWinners.com) and RedChoke Berries (available from NatureHills.com)
A final great idea to add color to your landscape during the winter is by adding elements such as a colorful old bicycle, brightly-painted planters and benches, or a stone feature with evergreen shrubs growing amongst the rocks.
