Create a Cozy Winter Water Garden

Winter may not seem like a cozy time outdoors, but you can create "warmth" around your pond or waterfall by using Pond and Landscape LED Lighting. Much like you decorate your house at Christmas, you can enhance your water feature during the shorter days of winter.

    Beautiful. So maybe it's a stupid question, but are you able to keep everything from freezing and causing an expensive mess just because the water is in motion?

    The lighting definitely makes those landscapes winter wonderland. I attended a talk by a master gardener yesterday, who reminded us that it is important to remember that lighting should be on a timer so that it goes off at a reasonable time. Not doing so can throw off the natural rhythms of plants, making them more susceptible to cold damage, among other things, and the animals that inhabit our landscapes.

    Good point, Douglas! And yes, Steve ... the moving water helps to keep things from freezing solid. It's important to keep an eye on the water level however, as there will be some water loss due to evaporation. On occasion, you'll need to top off the water. You also want to make sure ice formations don't cause the water to run a new route and splash out excessively.

    Your posts look so refreshing...It must be the effect of water. It relaxes the eyes looking at the pictures. Beautiful
