Making Your Outdoor Living Environment Winter-Friendly

Winter officially began December 21 and with winter comes snow, ice, and brisk temperatures. As temperatures lower and the sun sets earlier, you may find yourself retreating indoors, unable to enjoy your beautiful backyard space until early Spring. Luckily, with some simple touches and heating elements, you can avoid cabin fever and transform any outdoor space into one that is cozy and outdoor friendly, allowing you and your family to enjoy your patio cover well into the winter months ahead.
Plant Coniferous Trees Wrap your patio cover with strategically-placed fern trees inside terracotta pots to keep in the warmth and keep out the wind and snow. Additionally, coniferous trees are known for pulling moisture out of the air.

Trend Alert: 2018's HOTTEST Top Holiday Décor Style

This year’s hottest holiday décor style is dubbed “Modern Farmhouse.” Inspired by HGTV’s “Fixer Upper” star interior designer, Joanna Gaines, “Modern Farmhouse” is not only practical, modern, and rustic, but cost-efficient and comfortable, too. Gaining traction in early 2018, “Modern Farmhouse” searches on Etsy are up 142% compared to last year and according to Google Trends, interest in the search term doubled year over year.

The “Modern Farmhouse” style consists of warm tones, wood accents, plaid/striped or solid fabrics in dark reds, greys and blacks, beige and sage green hues, as well as galvanized steel, and other rustic, industrial, and vintage-themed materials.

10. CREEPING JENNY This perennial plant is a fast-growing evergreen with round golden yellow leaves. Working well in rock gardens, between stepping stones, and around ponds, Creeping Jenny will vigorously “creep” around anywhere you wish it to cover. Provide enough water and you’re well on your way to never getting rid of this plant







9. PANSY If you are picky about color, pansies come in an array of colors, some in multiple colors per flower. Much smaller than Calendulas, Pansies grow eight inches tall and grow best in containers or in groupings against trees or bushes. If you live in a frost-free region, this flower will add plenty of color to your landscaping.




8. PETUNIA These plants are tough and do extremely well in the cool weather. They come in many different colors, sizes, and shapes and only rely on sunlight, a little fertilizer and water to bloom. If you live in a frost-free region, these plants can be planted in the winter without any issues.
