Victorian froth - or simple contemporary
A garden designer's work doesn't stop once snow falls. The season simply requires a different approach, says Scott Endres, co-owner of Tangletown Gardens in Minneapolis, known for its innovative designs.
He likes to decorate his yard with natural materials, such as red- or yellowtwig dogwood and evergreens, usually in the same containers he used for summer plants. (Tip: Don't use clay pots. The leftover soil or snow inside will crack the pots in a freeze-thaw cycle unless you turn the pots upside down.)
Scott also adds strings of lights, plus luminarias and torches for night interest. Contemporary homes require simpler designs, but Victorians (like Scott's house, left), can showcase more abundance. See how Scott's designs can add seasonal finery to your yard.
