Giving Back: A Lifescape Holiday Tradition

One of our favorite ways to give back during the holiday season is to adopt a family in need, and we’re grateful to be able to sponsor a local family this year through the Tennyson Center for Children.

What is the Tennyson Center for Children?

The Tennyson Center for Children is committed to giving Colorado children that have experienced abuse, neglect, or trauma a second chance. For more than a century, this local non-profit organization has been providing children and families with healing through its community-based, school, and residential programs.

What is Operation Santa?

Because many of the families served don’t have the financial means to give gifts during the holidays, the Tennyson Center for Children hosts Operation Santa each year. By participating in Operation Santa, local businesses and members of the Denver community adopt a family and help fulfill their holiday wishlists. Each child in the family will receive three gifts, and the adults will receive a family gift or help with needs they may have.

The Tennyson Center for Children offers several opportunities to get involved with Operation Santa. Adopting a cottage, classroom, or program is a way that you can keep Operation Santa around throughout the year, and the ways that you can help will be customized to your desired giving level. Contact the Tennyson Center for Children to learn more!

We can honestly say that our holiday season has become a little brighter by being able to participate in Operation Santa this year. Please contact us at Lifescape Colorado to learn more about how you can get involved with this wonderful local non-profit.

Add some seasonal splash with colorful Holiday containers

Just because the cooler temperatures are rolling in doesn’t mean that you have to abandon beautiful colors and points of interest throughout your home and landscape. Colorful and festive holiday containers can bring a splash of cheer to porches, outdoor living areas and landscapes. Here are some ideas:

Fall themes and autumn colors. It’s not too late!

The talented designers at Lifescape create beautifully rich containers with natural autumn décor featuring ornamental grasses, cornstalks, pumpkins – even branch clippings from your landscape to add texture and give your container design longer life. With Thanksgiving just around the corner, it’s not too late to get your fall containers in before friends and family arrive!

Festive holiday greenery and décor.

 

Celebrate the season with evergreen colors and textures, vibrant bright reds of winterberry holly or redtwig dogwood branches, and layered clippings of pine, cedar, and spruce. The Lifescape design team works with clippings of eucalyptus or willow for welcomed hues of blue and silver that add variety and interest to your holiday display.

Beautiful holiday containers add style and sparkle to your landscape throughout the holiday season.

Plan Now for a Colorful Spring Landscape

Although we’re currently in the thick of fall, now is the ideal time to start planning for your spring landscape. By working with a landscape professional now, you can plan for beautiful color, proactively make changes and add hardscapes, outdoor living or other features to enhance your outdoor space.

Here are some ways that the Lifescape team will help you plan a beautiful spring landscape:

1. Plant bulbs.

   

Fall is the ideal time to plant bulbs. Bulbs must be planted before the ground freezes but in time to go through the chilling process that is necessary for them to bloom properly in spring. A Lifescape expert will help you determine the best varieties to plant and the optimal locations in your landscape for tulips, daffodils, and other colorful spring flowers to provide maximum impact.

2. Incorporate hardscapes.

Hardscapes are an attractive way to highlight flower beds, walkways and walls. The fall is a great time to replace cracked concrete drives, walkways and patios with permeable interlocking pavers that allow for the movement of rainwater through the surface. Our talented designers can help you incorporate hardscapes into your landscape, enhancing your home’s year-round curb appeal.

3. Plant trees and shrubs.

Adding trees and shrubs to your landscape will provide shade, beauty and wind protection for your outdoor living space. Planting in the fall before the ground freezes will allow them to establish root systems and be better prepared for beautiful spring growth.

 

4. Avoid the spring rush.

Many homeowners choose to wait until spring to make enhancements to their landscape. This, along with the natural cycle of growth makes spring the busiest time of year for landscapers. Avoid the spring rush by scheduling projects in the fall while our Team has more availability and can complete your landscape upgrade quickly.

Enjoy the colorful spring garden that you’ve always wanted. Contact Lifescape now to make the most of our beautiful fall weather.
