Most homes in this area have some type of landscaped beds in their yards along with a grass lawn. Many have a parkway tree and maybe a few more trees for shade planted in the front and back of the home with shrubs and perennials in beds around the perimeter. Adding annuals to landscaped beds and containers carries color between spring tree and shrub blooms and summer flowering perennials. There are plants for summer patio entertaining and grandeur fall color. So where is the winter interest in a well-manicured lawn? We say hide the shears until spring to maintain eye-catching interest year-round!
