Your landscape is a perfect place to start for decorating your home for the holidays. Not only will you and your family appreciate the festive, new look of your home, but neighbors will also enjoy the sight of holiday lights and decorations around your yard. Thankfully there are plenty of easy ways to tastefully incorporate holiday lights into your landscape without overdoing it this holiday season. As you prepare your home exterior for the holidays this year, consider these four easy ways to light up your landscape for the holidays.
Line the Walkway of Your Hardscape with Holiday Lights
Replace your existing landscape lights along the walkway of your hardscape with festive holiday lights. Lighted candy canes or raised string lights are perfect for leading the way to the entrance of your home or deck. Holiday lights will add a fun and festive look to the appearance of your hardscape for the holiday season.
Choose Selected Areas of Your Landscape for Lighting
Instead of wrapping your entire landscape in holiday lights, choose selected areas of your yard to light up this year. Your favorite trees, the railing of your deck, or the perimeter of an outdoor feature, such as your gazebo, are excellent choices. This step will prevent your yard from looking overwhelmingly bright with festive holiday lights and decor.
Add Festive Accent Pieces to Your Lights
Holiday accessories, such as outdoor inflatables, garland, or beautiful bows are perfect for accenting your lights this holiday season. Make the most of decorating your outdoor space by centralizing your holiday decor around a selected area. With this, your holiday lights can frame your favorite holiday decorations with a festive glow in your outdoor space.
Balance the Distribution of Lights in Your Space
As you are decorating your landscape for the holidays, it is important to ensure that the look of your yard is balanced with the right about of lights. Avoid wrapping lights around only one section of your yard, or decorating only your front or backyard space. A balanced look of festive holiday lights is the perfect way to prepare your home exterior for the holidays this year!
