The landscape is the perfect backdrop for holiday decorations. Don’t limit the area to trees and shrubs, vines, flowers, and lawn gnomes. To bring out the holiday spirit in your family, adorn your landscape with Christmas decorations. This will also show the neighbors that you value the holiday of giving.
1. Outdoor Christmas Tree
Does your landscape lack a tree? Why not place the Christmas tree outdoors? You can even have a tree for the home interior and another one outside. Wrap string lights around it and be sure to wrap them deep into the tree branches. This will help the light reflect off the ornaments.
2. Lighted Messages
Arrange lights to spell out a message. This can be a simple “Merry Christmas” or the shortened “Merry X-mas.” If you’re religious, perhaps you can include a spiritual message. Consider a message that spreads cheer and love.
3. Chicken Wire Balls with Light
You can find chicken wire balls at your local arts and crafts store. Just string some lights over them, spread them out over the lawn, and you have a magnificent display. Incorporate a different Christmas color for each ball. These are great space fillers if your lawn has a lot of empty space.
4. Topiary Animals
Do you have shrubs cut into the shape of animals? Make these the focal piece by placing net lights over them. You can purchase artificial topiary animals as well. Christmas ones include reindeers, penguins, cubs, and doves.
Remember that Christmas also marks the arrival of winter. Your lawn will require extensive care before then. Contact All Weather Landscaping for services ranging from lawn care to pressure washing. With lawn care and Christmas landscape decorations, your yard will take on a dazzling display of holiday spirit.
