What Houzz contributors are saying:

When considering the winter landscape around your home, don't neglect to add both evergreen and decidous trees. Evergreens provide a bit of green in the lean months, as well as providing home for many woodland creatures. Deciduous trees can provide striking outlines in the winter snow as their trunks stretch upwards and their arms stretch outwards.Find a landscape designer
So pull your chair up to the fire and look out at your garden. You've worked hard in it all year — now it is time to appreciate all you have accomplished. Grab your computer rather than your shovel and start creating ideabooks for next year. But put an extra log on the fire first.Happy holidays.
4. Schedule work for the winter. Contractors are generally very busy in the summer but might be willing to give you a discount if you schedule work for the winter — at least here, in Philadelphia. It may be different in a warm city like San Diego. Ask your contractor when work is generally slow and ask for a discount if you postpone the work until then.5. Be nice. If you treat your contractor and the staff respectfully, he will remember this when the opportunity arises to go the extra mile for you.6. Be 'good pay.' A client who is "good pay" is one who pays when the contract stipulates, without needing to be reminded or convinced. This works similar to the previous tip: If the contractor feels that you are not the type to try to stiff him, he will be more comfortable going out on a limb for you.
Are you prepared for the cold? You don't want to be caught without salt, wood or shovels when you need them. What do you do to prepare for the season?
