Why so glum, winter garden? There’s no need for garden spaces to be left to the wayside this winter. Just because it’s cold out doesn’t mean your garden can’t brighten your life! While your winter-hardy plants hibernate for the season, spruce up your outdoor space with garden art.
Colorful and cheery, garden art comes in all shapes and forms so you can find a few styles that fit your tastes. Not only that, but adding art to the garden is a fun, new way to exercise your creativity. You can build your own DIY garden art, or, if you don’t mind paying extra, your local garden center should have some options.

How to keep your winter garden spruced up and looking beautiful
A beautiful garden year-round does not happen by chance. Gardeners must be diligent about prepping their plants for cold weather and keeping the garden well-kempt as well. In fact, much of winter garden success depends on how well you prepare your landscape in the fall months. Some tips for a well-prepared winter garden:
- Move container plants under shelter if possible
- Cover outside plants
- Mulch around roots to limit freezing and thawing damage
