The approach of Halloween offers you an excellent opportunity to decorate the space around your house in the most creative way possible. Pumpkins are seasonal vegetables and can be used at discretion, but you will also need other Halloween decorations for your garden to become a terrifying space.
Halloween decorations for the garden can take the most diverse forms. It would be ideal, however, to make sure that you opt for some decorations resistant to the weather (wind, rain, increasingly low temperatures) or place them strategically in safe areas on the garden surface so that the decorations are preserved in optimal conditions.
Your artificial grass looks its best – lush, uniformly green, smooth, and excited to host your seasonal decor. That means turning your yard into a Halloween scene doesn’t have to start with a tedious, messy cleanup. No, you can skip right to the fun part.
One caution, though. Many commercial and DIY decorations require some stakes to hold them in place. While this is not a problem with natural grass turf, you cannot drill holes in artificial grass. Once you damage the stand, it will need to be repaired. However, don’t let this discourage you. There are many ways to secure larger decorations, so they don’t fall or explode without using stakes.
How to decorate your lawn?
Carved pumpkins are some of the most used Halloween decorations. They have the advantage of being quite resistant and heavy, but they can give you a bit of a headache when sculpting. If you overcome this obstacle, you will later be able to place them wherever you want on the surface of the garden.
For example, you can place some at the exit of the house. You can place a pumpkin on each step of the stairs and, on Halloween night, put a candle in each of them. The carved pumpkins can also find their place in the trees in the garden, on the empty fences, at the edge of the alleys – which they will highlight beautifully when the darkness leaves, etc.
Even ghosts should not be missing from your Halloween garden landscape. The best part is that decorations of this type can be easily made by yourself.
The simplest option is to draw old white sheets and place them on supports so that they look exactly like real ghosts. You can create different facial expressions for them, from scary ones to downright funny ones.
Where do you place it? If it’s not raining or windy on Halloween, wherever you want. You can create groups of ghosts (a haunted circle, for example) or disperse them over the entire garden surface, along with pumpkins and other Halloween decorations.
Other Halloween decorations
There is no limit to what you can try in terms of Halloween decorations. Remember that, in addition to pumpkins and ghosts, you can always add tombstones with different messages, skeletons, cobwebs, lanterns with Halloween motifs, various figurines (black cats, bats, skulls, zombies, crows, etc.) on the surface of the garden, etc.
The pleasant lighting of the garden can also be adapted to contribute to the Halloween atmosphere; for example, replace the classic bulbs with black or red ones, according to your preference. At the same time, on Halloween night, if you gather friends on the porch of the house or even in the garden, don’t forget to complete the set with specific music. Some sinister songs or scary sounds (creaking floors, whistling, witches’ laughter, etc.) will be more than appropriate.
Now you can enjoy your Halloween! Happy Halloween!
