6 Fun Ways to Decorate Your Front Yard for the Holidays

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! 

 

Fall and winter mean cooler weather, time spent with loved ones, and plenty of reasons to decorate! 

 

From Halloween and Thanksgiving to Christmas and Hanukkah, artificial turf provides a beautiful background to your lights and inflatables. Even better, lower maintenance needs of the turf mean more time to plan and perfect your decorations.

 

Front Yard Decor Ideas

These six fun ways to decorate your front yard, and your turf, for the season will get you in the holiday spirit!

 

Front Yard Halloween Decorations

With Halloween, you can go one of two ways: spooky or cute! Local stores provide the pieces for any style. You can even make your own Halloween decorations for your front yard.

 

Pumpkin Overload: Gather up real and fake pumpkins and maybe some hay bales, to create pumpkin displays on several levels in the corner of your yard. Grab some fun, creative signs from Target, Walmart, Amazon (or create your own) for your pumpkin patch. Make it a perfect photo stop on Halloween night for the neighborhood kids when you add a Happy Halloween banner behind. 

 

Skeleton Graveyard: With tombstones and skeletons, you can create a spookier theme on your turf front yard. Skeletons of varying sizes, tombstones with fun or clever sayings, and even some coffins from your local Halloween decoration store can create a visual and even interactive yard for your neighbors. If you have some extra turf in your garage, consider planting a family member under it in front of a gravestone. Leaping up at an unsuspecting (teen) trick-or-treater can be great fun.

Front Yard Fall Decorations

When you have turf for your home, you don’t need to worry about spending your fall weekends toiling over the lawn. The turf is going to be green and beautiful without hours of effort on your part. Instead, you can plan and decorate for the season and holidays

 

Add a Wreath: You can either DIY your own fun wreath (which could be an awesome weekend activity with the kids!) or buy one for your front door. This is an easy, low maintenance way to change up your home decor for the season. You can swap them out as often as you like so that you can celebrate all your favorite holidays.

 

Increase the Color: Even if you don’t live in an area with fall leaves, you can add color to your yard. Surround your turf with potted plants and flowers in fall ambers, yellows, and burnt orange. These can add beautiful fall color and texture to your yard and stand out against the green turf.

Front Yard Decorations for Winter Holidays

When looking for creative turf ideas for your home, consider the different elements that complement your always-green turf.  Make decorating for the winter an artistic adventure with these ideas: 

 

Line the Lawn: You can line your lawn, walkway, or driveway with lights to celebrate the holiday. Lighted dreidels, luminarias, or light-up snowflakes can help to add a festive feel to any front yard. Some options can even help with adding additional lighting in the darker times of the year.

 

Reuse Old Items: If you have old snow boots, rain boots, or even a sled, reuse those items as planters! You can surround your lawn or place the items right on top, and plant some seasonal shrubs or flowers. Reusing these can add a fun, festive, and personal feel to the yard. If you don’t have a sled or boots lying around, a thrift store might!

 

Consider Artificial Turf This Holiday Season

Every holiday is an opportunity to decorate! This time of year has many holidays in a row so that yards can be decorated constantly. But you can also decorate for other holidays in the spring and summer, bringing some fun to your beautiful lawn.

 

If you are ready to invest in a lower maintenance option for your front or backyard landscaping, SYNLawn Dallas can help!
