Have You Thought about Your Garden Lately?

This house in Mt. Vernon is a great example of an amazing landscaping!

Winter is here and with it comes the cold planting season. We love Washington for the multitude of plants that can grow here, we have so many options! Plants are a great way to improve your home’s exterior and a well-done garden, such as the backyard of this gorgeous home in Mount Vernon, WA ,  can even help to boost the value of your home. While it isn’t a good time for flowers just yet, December is the perfect time to grow a vegetable garden! Many veggies do very well in the crisp winter air and are a great way to add something special to your front or backyard.

Winter is a great time to harvest veggies and plant new ones!

Don’t know what to plant? Consider a small herb garden or possibly some larger vegetables such as garlic or onions! November through April is also the best time to plant fruit and nut trees, the earlier you plant, the better. Winter is a great time to clean out an older garden too, weeds can peek through at anytime and keeping up with it over the wintertime is a must! Here is an non-toxic and easy way to protect your garden from unwanted plants.

It can be difficult to keep up a garden during the winter, if planting isn’t your forte then try some decorative seating and lawn ornaments. Decks are another wonderful way to keep your yard looking wonderful all year round. They are great for entertaining as well as a place for potted plants. Decks are easy to take care of and relatively inexpensive to furnish. Adding color to your backyard is great for all seasons.
