I love this yard design because it shows us what it looks like in winter. Most of the time when I go over landscape designs it is of a yard in the spring or summer. But here we can see some variance, which is nice. The thing you want to ask yourself is how your yard will look in the different seasons. Many people design their yard in the late fall, and then in the spring it bursts to life with all sorts of surprises. But it is also nice to ask yourself what the yard will look like surrounded by snow.
