Winter magic is in your backyard

As we reflect upon 2019, we are struck with many reasons to be thankful: We work with amazingly talented and enthusiastic crew people, our clients give us the opportunity to create beautiful spaces, and our work connects us to southeast Wisconsin’s buzzworthiest people and places.

Our projects over the year were vast, but one in particular captured many aspects of what we do, from the first spark of inspiration to realization – and pushing the bounds of the seasons to create enjoyment all year. Check out these photographs of Braden Kizer’s gorgeous fountain! This piece adds artful interest to these great clients’ landscape even through winter.

In spring of 2019, Braden’s crew set up an intimate back patio area for concrete pouring. This area was designed to include fire and water, nestled in a secluded backyard surrounded by nature.
The clients were able to enjoy a fire on their private back patio by late summer, with a background of moving water. This fountain is more than a one-season show, thanks to Braden and our color team’s vision …
Braden’s vision for the fountain was more than just warm-weather water sounds. This fountain became a glowing natural display that the clients can enjoy while sitting next to a cool-season fire or from the windows while cozy inside.
A small part of this client’s holiday and winter decorating, the fountain holds a mix of premium evergreens, natural accents, and glowing orbs to ensure enjoyment of the garden 365 days of the year.

Projects like this one may be small compared to the overall landscape design and installation, but they’re what give a garden life. A landscape is not just for summer; it’s your connection to nature and home, and we love finding ways to enhance that experience. We hope you’ve found something to cherish in your outdoor space during this cold, dark season.

Winter is a time of reflection and renewal for many people, and we’re no different. After a company-wide break, we’ll be spending the next couple of months evaluating everything we do, and planning ways to do it better. If you’re doing the same, you might think about ways to get more out of your garden:

  • Fixing or updating your outdoor living areas
  • Adding a vegetable garden
  • Creating winter interest with interesting tree and shrub color
  • Enlivening your space by attracting birds and butterflies
  • Refreshing what you have through winter pruning

All of us at LandWorks wish you the very best holiday season, whatever you celebrate. We’ll see you in the new year!
