Tips for Adding Festive Touches to Your Landscaping

by cuttingadmin, December 8, 2020

The holidays are almost here and, if you haven’t already but plan to, now is the time to spread holiday joy by decorating your outdoor areas. That includes your sand and gravel and patio areas. Here are some ideas for adding festive touches to your landscaping.

Set It Aglow

Set your hardscaping, roofline, and patio all aglow by stringing light sets. There is no shortage of outdoor lights – colorful C9s, twinkling icicles, and bright LEDs – that you can use to create ambiance this holiday season. You can also use net lights on bushes and pathway markers next to your sand and gravel walkways, patio, or fire pit area.

Oversize Decorations

In addition to holiday lighting, there are various oversize decorations that you can use in your landscaping to spread joy and cheer this holiday season. These include inflatable snowmen, lighted reindeer, colorful ornaments, and entrance trees.

While not necessarily oversized, other touches to add to your landscaping, especially the front yard, and patio include festive doormats and seasonal throws and pillows. The latter is perfect for creating warmth and comfort on chilly evenings.

Plant a Real Evergreen

According to History, ancient people hung evergreen boughs over their doors and windows and, in the 16th century, began decorating trees using candles. Safely decorated trees are now a centerpiece in many homes. Today, you can buy potted evergreens that you can decorate indoors and then plant outside after the holidays.

The University of Arizona: College of Agriculture and Life Sciences states that these trees can “grow to be more than 50 feet tall and 20 feet wide,” depending on the species, so it is essential to consider space before planting. You may also want to consider having landscape curbing installed around the tree for curb appeal.
