Groundhogs & Valentines…It’s February


Winter Gardens

We all know that Rochester winters can be long, cold and snowy, but that doesn’t mean we can’t enjoy our landscapes from the warm views of our windows. There are many different types of additions for your landscape that can add interest in these chilly months. Different colors, textures and movement can be welcome changes.

Start now by taking a look from your favorite spots inside to see what areas of your landscape are lacking, or could use a little pizzazz. Think about dimension, something that will draw your eye or make you linger and take some photos. Take note of areas that would benefit by adding a focal point. 

In our next newsletter, Broccolo’s Jessica DeMasio will suggest specific ways you can add winter interest through movement, color and texture to find new beauty in winter.
