The December garden is beautiful in itself: shrubs, powdered with snow, red berries, winding branches of willows and corkscrew hazel ‘Contorta’. It remains to make a few touches to make it truly Christmassy.

Topiary trees (conifers and evergreen shrubs) look best dressed with a thin “spider web” of white electric lights. Branches of large deciduous trees can be decorated with LED strings, which are wrapped from the bottom of the trunk and pulled along each branch, emphasizing the beautiful silhouette of the tree. If there is no time for such a painstaking job, just hang garlands of large white lanterns on the trees. And, of course, we must not forget about the living creatures in the garden – bird feeders always must be filled with delicious sunflower seeds. The highlight of the festive decor will be LED deer figures on a snow-covered lawn or a low tree in front of the house decorated with Christmas tree decorations.
