It’s tough to do any landscaping in the winter when many flowers are dead and trees lose their leaves. Adding color isn’t too hard but it does take time and thought. Choosing the easiest and cheapest way to landscape is hard but things laying around the house or garage can help add that pop to your yard! Lawn decorating tips for winter include adding color, reusing summer time items, and taking advantage of your hardscape.
Decorating for the Holidays
1. Start With Your Porch
Begin small and work your way up. Your porch is seen by all and when you have people visit you want it to pop. Using garland and lights to decorate is cheap and effective in getting people to look at your home. Add red bows around the railing too for the Christmas spirit! Line your walk way with something small, it adds some detail that will accent against the snow. Hanging ornaments or snowflakes off your porch doesn’t take much effort and the kids can help you decorate!
2. Use Your Resources
If you have fire wood maybe you can set it up to make a snow man! It doesn’t need to be decorated extensively to know what it is and if you live in a place where you get little to no snow it’s a good way to still make everybody’s beloved snowman. If you have any broken or unused items laying around the house or garage then you can pull them out and decorate your lawn with little damage to the ground.
3. Find The Right Decorations
Christmas lawn decorations are expensive and can easily be done on your own. Since many plants can’t survive the harsh winter you can take those empty planters and put fake plants or trees in them. It’ll continue to give a purpose to those planters instead of having to put them away. A bird bath can also be used as a decoration. If you can find something with berries, go with it. Birds can continue to find food thanks to them and they add color against the green and white.
