Tips to Turn Your Backyard Into a Winter Wonderland
by AJ Keating, December 6, 2018
There are plenty of ways to transform your very own backyard into the winter wonderland that you hear about in so many holiday songs. Follow these tips to transport you and your guests straight to the North Pole!
Decorate for the Holidays
Your home interior isn’t the only place perfect for showcasing holiday décor. Bring the spirit of the season to the backyard with string lights, wreaths, ornaments hung on trees and ribbons tied on branches. Learn how to wrap a tree with lights.
It’s hard to enjoy a winter wonderland if you have nowhere to sit, so create the perfect spot to get cozy. A fire pit is a relatively inexpensive investment that you can use to stay warm during a holiday party and other gatherings. Arrange chairs around the pit, and make your outdoor lounge spot feel cozier with holiday-themed throw blankets and pillows.
Many people think the only kind of plants that thrive in winter are evergreens. In reality, there are many options for color in the winter garden, thanks to cold-tolerant shrubs such as witch hazel, boxwood, winterberry and flowering quince. Spread these beautiful plants throughout the backyard for a surprising burst of winter color.

Make your shed the focal point of your winter wonderland by turning it into a Christmas cottage where the kids can visit Santa!
