Make Your Home and Landscaping in Denver Shine for the Holidays


December 6, 2017

The holiday season is here, which means it is time to add your outdoor decor to your landscaping in Denver. For some, the lights and decorations are minimal, while for others, it is the goal to be the most magical house on the street. No matter how you prefer to set up your yard, it is definitely time to get to work. For tips on hanging lights and ideas for porches, to highlighting walkways and driveways, use these tips to prepare for the holidays.

Hanging Lights

Your first agenda item for hanging lights and holiday decor is to create a plan. Even if you have the same lights you hang year after year, or rely on an expert for help, it is important to know the steps you will take. For a minimal and simplistic look, take a single strand of lights, either one color or multi-color, and hang them around the outlines of your home. If you prefer to maximize your lights, while working on your plan, create a list of all the areas you can hang lighting. This could be the outline of the home, as well as around chimneys, doorways, shrubs, bushes, trees, and more. Be sure to review more tips for preparing for your holiday lighting from the tree experts.

Porch Ideas

Front porch lighting is a great way to welcome guests. Add a strand of lights around your door ways and porch lights if you have them. Complement your lighting with a welcoming wreath on your door. You can purchase one from your local home goods store, or try one of these holiday wreaths on your own. Pair it with a holiday welcome mat, as well as a figurine such as a snowman or candy cane.

Walkways and Driveways

Lighting around your walkways and driveways is not only a great way to enhance your holiday decor, but provides added safety, too! With the longer nights among us, it helps to have a guide as you pull into your driveway, or walking into your home. You can add lighting by strands, or by strategically placing lights into the ground along the pathway. You can tie in holly or other decor around the lights to compete the holiday feel. Festive lighting options also exist; imagine your driveway lined with light-up candy-canes. That’s sure to get the holiday spirit going!
