winter landscapeWestern North Carolina and western South Carolina are privy to all four seasons. Spring and Autumn have perfect temperatures and an array of colors. Summer is warm but not nearly as hot as cities such as Charlotte. Winter is relatively mild for a high elevation region, but cold enough to delight snow-lovers most years. Most of the year, temperatures cooperate for people who want to get outside and enjoy the splendor of nature that surrounds our area. We have more hiking and mountain biking trails you could explore in a lifetime. There are waterfalls and swimming holes tucked away throughout the region. You can find beautiful 360-degree views of expansive vistas, as well as quiet wooded meadows. 

If you like to spend time exploring nature and the outdoors, you certainly live in the right place. Greenville and Hendersonville homeowners often have lawns and yards as beautiful as the surrounding nature. However, some homeowners might be frustrated by when winter comes, and their lawns and landscaping turn brown and gray. At Garrett’s Landscape, we have tips for how to improve your winter landscaping and projects to take on when the weather turns cold.
