What Houzz contributors are saying:

Wooden structures and deciduous trees are wonderful additions to the winter garden simply for the way the snow coats each branch, like a little vanilla frosting on each piece.
"Structure." A lot of architectural terms have multiple meanings. "Structure" is one. While it can refer to the components (beams, joists, columns, rafters, footings) that hold up a building, it can also refer to the way a space is organized.Certainly this comes from when a building's structure was fundamentally tied to spatial organization. But new technologies and materials have made it possible to completely separate space and structure from each other, as architects like Mies van der Rohe did.
Jocelyn H. Chilvers added this to Rocky Mountain Gardener's December Checklist
Make repairs to the hardscape elements of your garden, such as arbors, fences and gates. Access to these structures may be easier and there's less chance of damaging nearby plants while the garden is dormant.
We also would love to see how the snow looks in your garden this year, so please share those photos, too.
Structure is expressed here in a landscape with great beauty and authenticity. Raw wood elements form a cavalcade of spaces beneath the marching canopy. The wood pieces are primitively connected, giving integrity to the design idea.
