Temperatures have dropped, and the days are shorter. THE TEXAS HOLIDAY SEASON IS UPON US. Here are a few ideas that will help extend your usage and add focal features to your space with these winter temperatures.
With fewer hours of daylight this time of year, lighting is a great option to extend your usage. Enhance your space by adding some string lights along a handrail to create a border, putting some bulbs in a seasonal wreath for interest, or running some Edison lights to light up the sky. When it comes to safety and showing off the dynamics of your property, we suggest LED fixtures. These will help visitors navigate walkways and patios while highlighting features at the same time.
Classic Winter Color
• Pansies. Pansies are hardy plants ideal for North Texas winters.
• Texas Aster. Fall aster blossoms from September to November in North Texas.
• Snapdragons. These perennials do best in cool weather.
• Marigolds. Marigolds are one of the best picks because they bloom in the classic autumn colors of orange, yellow, gold, etc. The two most common groups of marigolds are the French marigolds (Tagetes patula) and the African (Tagetes erecta).
While fire pits/troughs and fireplaces are popular and have been for years, fire tables can also be a big hit! Their sleek design and easy usage make them a great choice for larger groups, whereas fireplaces are ideal for those looking for a more intimate experience. You can’t go wrong incorporating that fire element within your outdoor space. Whether you’re outside enjoying the warmth or inside just looking out, whether it be functioning or purely aesthetic, it’s a win-win.
