Often a major mistake is made in garden design: The garden is designed exclusively for the summer and not for the winter. But we can only enjoy this for a short time during the summer. In the other months of the year it is just an empty space. This sad picture does not have to be! Learn how to design a garden design for the whole year.
The garden is so beautiful and tempting in winter!
It all starts with the strategic division of the different zones. The garden must be divided by larger and smaller planted zones. Trees and bushes must be used in groups. Follow this method in the design, avoid chaos and give the garden structure harmony and volume.
The garden paths have to be cleverly planned and designed
Plan the garden paths
The second step in setting up a garden that looks attractive all year round is the proper planning of the garden paths. At least one wider, but for larger areas also several such should be created. Two to three people should be able to run parallel to this.
The wide paths must connect longer distances and become the main elements of the garden. They can then be connected by smaller paths. This structure makes relaxed running in the garden possible throughout the year. Shrubs and other garden plants perfect the look and make the garden look even more interesting.
On a small garden area you can also make something special
Solution for smaller areas
In a small garden, sometimes the wide pathway design is almost impossible. This must nevertheless be present enough. The paths in this case should therefore be flanked by higher, beautifully decorated entanglements. In this way beautiful compositions are created.
Enjoy the beauty of the wintry landscape
In the summer the colors should predominate in the garden and in winter the sculptural appearance is of fundamental importance. You must plan the garden in accordance with these goals and select the plants according to these two criteria.

Shrubs with fruits in winter and evergreen plants
Also think of the use of evergreen trees and shrubs and spread them evenly over the whole area. There are also certain plants, such as the rose hips, which use fiery accents in the outdoor space in a natural way.

The garden furniture
Part of the garden furniture, for example, the benches and some built-in tables should be made of resistant material that can stay out there all year round. They also contribute to the appealing character of the garden landscape. On sunny days, you can sit on these even in winter.
The garden furniture is sleeping in hibernation
A year round attractive garden is also achieved by the appropriate lighting. Of course, this must be adapted to the different weather conditions. Paths need to be illuminated year round, especially those that are needed more often. Decorative lighting allows you to distribute more accents everywhere.
