Tips to prepare holiday decorations outside of your home

It’s that time of year again when we all feel the need to celebrate the holiday season by covering our house in as many festive lights and decorations as possible, channeling our inner Clark Griswold. Of course, you don’t need to go to National Lampoon’s Christmas Vacation lengths to make your home look good.


It’s probably better for your sanity if you do scale it back from covering the entire building in lights to ensure you don’t have a sky high electricity bill once the new year roles around. There are lots of ways you can get the outside of your house ready for Christmas, so here’s a few great tips!

Let there be (solar) lights!

There aren’t many more festive sights than beautiful displays of decorative lights outside your home at Christmas time, so make sure you don’t miss out. If you are concerned about the cost towards your bank account and also the planet for using more electricity, why not make the switch to solar Christmas lights this year? They look just as festive and come in all shapes, sizes, colors and styles, so you can get your holiday house looking the best it ever has, all thanks to the power of the sun.

Get ready to battle the snow

It’s not just about making your home look pretty of course, there is also the winter weather to think about. There are many things you can do to take control of your property even when the weather outside is frightful, from buying snow melting mats for your driveway to investing in a salt spreader plow if you have a lot of land you want to make safe from slippery icy patches. If you really want to show the snow who’s boss, you can even get a snow blower or outdoor de-icing cables.

Use your garden as decoration

Of course, while you’re thinking of how to decorate the outdoor spaces of your home, don’t forget that you already have some amazing decorative elements out there – namely your garden and the plants and bushes within it. So make sure you utilize them by decorating them with baubles and tinsel and of course lights, which don’t necessarily have to be Christmas lights. They can be any kind as long as they accentuate the great things about your garden.
