Winter Landscape Lighting Traditional Landscape, Chicago
The seasons change and so do the Gardens of James Martin Associates. Snow outlines frosty branching patterns and drapes the evergreens in white billows. A quiet hush prevails, yet lighting livens the scene with bright splendor on a cold winter night.
This is an example of a mid-sized traditional front yard landscaping in Chicago for winter. — Houzz

7. Add magic to snowy landscapes. Lights twinkling like tiny stars hovering over a snowy garden are just about as magical as it gets. To mimic stars overhead, wrap branches that overhang garden walkways or beds to create a softly lit canopy.

Knock heavy snow from tree branches. Heavy coatings of snow can cause tree limbs to break — which can be especially dangerous if a large limb is positioned near your home. Using a long-handled broom or rake, gently knock snow from branches after each storm.Take down holiday decorations, and store them well. When you’re ready to put away the holiday decorations, take the time to do it with care (you’ll thank yourself later). Wrap delicate ornaments in tissue paper, and wrap string lights around cardboard to prevent tangling. Consider giving away ornaments that didn’t make it onto the tree this year, and repair or toss broken items. And if you’re not ready to say goodbye to the white twinkle lights quite yet, leave them up. We can all use a little extra cheer in the middle of winter.

Грот из гирлянды Не обязательно обматывать дерево целиком — попробуйте сделать грот только на нижних ветвях. И пусть огни с одного дерева плавно переходят на соседние.
