Halloween has been a traditional occasion celebrated by most people in the world. Each year, people are putting a lot of effort into decorating their homes and gardens accordingly for this occasion.
If you want to try out some new ideas in decorating your garden for Halloween, here are some helpful guidelines that you can follow.
Preparing your Garden
In order to successfully decorate your garden for Halloween, you must first prepare your garden prior to the actual decorating phase. If necessary, you can have the landscaping changed in order to cater to the theme that you are planning to set up. But of course, this would require some help with a professional gardener in order to execute it perfectly.
Also, make sure to clear the pathway to your front door by removing unnecessary plants that have grown in your garden. Try to cut the grass in your garden evenly to project a clean and fresh vibe in your garden.
Tips for a Spectacular Spooky Garden
The basic step for decorating your garden for Halloween is to conceptualize the theme that you want to achieve. The most popular Halloween themes would be pumpkins, witch, and zombie themes. Try to be more imaginative in order to come up with a unique theme for your garden.
Also, consider your guests. You wouldn’t want your garden to be so scary that no one would actually want to visit your house. Try to pick outdoor decorations that are eerie, yet pleasing to the eyes like lighted carved pumpkins or smiling ghosts hanging in your yard.
Make sure that when you are choosing outdoor decorations for Halloween, it must be consistent with your theme to enhance the atmosphere created by the decors. You don’t necessarily have to buy expensive Halloween decorations. As a matter of fact, you can opt to use DIY decorations like lighted pumpkins, spider webs, and outdoor skeletons which you can assemble with your kids. All of these decorations can really bring the spirit of Halloween in your garden without spending too much money.
You can also use outdoor lighting in order to add a more eerie atmosphere to your garden. But make sure that these outdoor lights are working properly and that the front door is well lit to avoid accidents for your guests.
The essential rule in decorating your garden for Halloween is not to overdo it. Most of the time, less is more. If you over clutter your garden with Halloween decorations, it may look more chaotic and cheap rather than scary. Just practice the skill of creativity and your garden will surely be the spookiest garden in your street.
