A French-Inspired Garden and Home by Judith Stringham

French Country Christmas Garden Shed Exterior

Sunday, December 13, 2020

Dressing the French Country garden shed inside for Christmas is a tradition, and this year the exterior is all dressed for Christmas also. What started as a plywood garden shed years ago evolved over time into a stone-clad garden house that deserves beautiful Christmas greenery.

Dark fresh greens contrast with the white native Texas limestone, white lanterns, and white pedestal ceramic urn. Beautiful, but not expensive Christmas greenery, relies on supplementing existing evergreens with seasonal touches.

Existing evergreen shrubs in French Country style urns are supplemented with fresh greenery to add Christmas cheer to the garden house
Evergreen conical shrubs potted in French country style urns live on the deck year round. Fresh greenery, foraged horse apples, and fresh boxwood wreaths add Christmas cheer to the garden house. 




Native cedar trees grow abundantly in the naturalized woods surrounding the French Country Christmas Garden Shed
Native cedar trees grow abundantly in the naturalized woods in the yard. Large cedar branches at the base of the peach-colored wooden trellis are easy to arrange, will last during the holidays, and then return nutrients to the soil when they are discarded into a wild wooded area on the grounds.

Native cedar from the yard and Fraiser fir branches clipped from the bottom of a fresh-cut Christmas tree fill a moss and twig stocking on the inside of the French door entry to the garden shed.

The twig stocking can be used outside in a protected area, but the garden shed's open deck does not provide shelter for the stocking. 




Inexpensive fresh boxwood wreaths hang on the French doors of the French Country Christmas garden shed
Inexpensive fresh boxwood wreaths can withstand the elements in our mild north Texas Christmas weather. In December, daily maximum temperatures average 54°-62°, and minimum temperatures average 35°-43°, Fahrenheit. 




Snow rarely occurs for Christmas in north Texas, but the French Country Christmas garden shed still looks festive for Christmas
North Texas does get snow occasionally, but rarely for Christmas. The last snowy Christmas was almost ten years ago. Ice storms occur more often than snow storms and usually occur in January and February, not December.

Wired-edge sheer ribbons with sparkly dots also withstand the mild weather and infrequent rainy days.

Bare trees in the woods surrounding the French Country Christmas garden shed cannot dim the festive Christmas greenery decor
By Christmas, all the deciduous trees in the surrounding woods will be bare, but the garden shed will look very festive for Christmas with its fresh greenery.
