The winter time and Christmas is the perfect time for spending it with those that you love, and it’s likely that you may already have a get together planned with friends and family for this festive season.

Nothing is more welcoming than cosy and pretty lighting. There’s something about them that gives you a warm and fuzzy feeling. While you don’t want all of the lights on in your home all of the time, you can create a cosy a welcoming look using fairy lights in your garden. Display it along guttering and around shrubbery for a really pretty way of giving your home curb appeal.

During the fall, leaves begin to wilt off of the trees, your once radiant plants begin to die, and your grass won’t look as bright as it did during the summer time. One of the benefits of the winter time is that nothing grows very much, so you won’t have to spend much time keeping your garden looking neat and tidy. Take the time to do a final neaten up before your guests arrive by mowing the lawn, raking dead leaves, and pulling dead plants. Scottish pebbles are a great way of creating a pretty display in your garden because you don’t need to spend lots of time keeping them looking incredible.
Over time and treacherous weather conditions, fittings are likely to wear down and begin to look in need of a little TLC. Why not grab yourself a tin of paint, or even some varnish and give your doors, porch, and window frames a lick of paint to bring them up as good as new? Doing this will not only help your home look better too, because paint and varnish can often help prolong the life of wooden furnishings. Replacing door knobs and buying new numbers for your front door will also brighten up your door.
Finally, it’s understandable that you don’t want to eliminate all kinds of life from your garden this winter, and a great way of keeping your garden green is by planting evergreens. These are shrubbery and trees that don’t die off during the winter, and don’t take much looking after either. Perhaps you could plant a few new shrubs around your walkway to decorate with lights, making the entrance to your home like a magical walkway?
To sum up, to make your home welcoming this winter, you should be neatening and brightening up your home to ensure that your guests feel right at home!
