How to Decorate Your Yard for the Holidays

Posted on December 5, 2018

December means two things. The first is that the year is coming to an end, and you’re sure to be setting resolutions for 2019 ahead. The second is a bevy of holidays one right after another. Sometimes it’s hard to get into the holiday spirit when you’re running errands. The best way to feel the goodwill toward humankind is to decorate. When you’re looking the holidays right in the eye, it’s easier to feel the joy that comes with the season. Decorating your yard for the holidays gets easier when you have a landscaper in Newton you can trust. Here’s how to have the best holiday decorations you can.

Your Landscaper

The first step to getting your yard ready for decorating is to call your landscaper in Newton. They’ll be able to handle the fine-tuning your yard may need. Your shrubs will need pruning, and your gardens may need a touch-up. Living in New England, you may even require snow removal at this time of year. Once you’ve paid your landscaper, you’re ready to start the decorating process.

Plant Life

Your shrubs, trees, and garden are natural focal points of your yard. The best decorations will draw attention to these areas. Given that it gets darker earlier in the winters, lights are a must for decorations. Net lights are the easiest way to brighten up your bushes and shrubs. They even work for trees, though you’ll need a ladder. As for your garden, light up ornaments like those on your Christmas tree add a festive touch.

Open Space

In the winter, the open space in your yard looks almost barren. If you’re lucky, the snow will lay a blanket to give it a cozy look. Still, it’s best to have something in these open spaces to make your decorations feel complete. Of course, lighting displays are a popular choice. However, you don’t want to overdo it. Instead, try something simple like light up reindeer, or a blow-up snowman.

With the holidays upon us, there’s no better time to get in the spirit of things. Decorating your yard is the best way to feel the joy.
