One of the many perks of being a homeowner is that you finally have the opportunity to invest your time and money into a landscape that’s all your own. Customizing your landscape is especially fun when the holidays roll around and you can play with colorful lights and other fun and elegant seasonal décor.
With so many options available though, decorating your outdoor property for the holidays for the first time can be a little overwhelming. Here’s a little advice from our experts to help you create your perfect festive landscape!
Work toward a focal point.
There are a lot of different ways to decorate your landscape for the holidays, making it easy for your yard to look cluttered or disorganized. An attractive outdoor display is made up of decorations that complement one another to create a good visual flow, not just a bunch of décor thrown together. One of the easiest ways to create a pleasing display is to choose a focal point that all of your decorations can work together to emphasize. Your focal point could be your front porch or door, a big tree in your yard, or even an inflatable Santa or light up reindeer display on the roof.
Come up with a plan before you start decorating.
Another strategy to help you pull off a balanced and appealing holiday landscape is to plan everything out before you get started. Decide on your focal point, what decorations you want to use, and other details before you actually buy anything or set it up. Having a plan will allow you to prepare with measurements, the correct tools, and all the decorations you need to execute your ideas as quickly and easily as possible.
Designate a place for every piece you have to ensure it all looks good together, highlights the beauty of your home, and is readily visible. That way, you’re not wasting any time or money on décor that doesn’t fit, equipment you don’t need, or setting up decorations you have to take down and fix because they don’t look good or can’t be seen from the road.
