Halloween is on its way soon, and that means you’re going to want your landscape ready to celebrate the holiday! While some areas are calling off trick-or-treating for safety purposes, people can still enjoy the festive vibe of a well-decorated landscape. Here is what you can do to get your yard prepared for Halloween.
Have Lights Put Up
It can be fun using lights to create a spooky-looking atmosphere for your yard. However, lights are recommended not just because they give off a more festive vibe, but also because they keep your yard safer. Halloween is a time that vandalizers could show up and cause damage to your property. Houses that are dark make it easier for these people to remain anonymous. With landscape lighting, people who try to vandalize your property will have nowhere to hide.
Consider Using Candles
Jack-o-lanterns are a staple for many Halloween-themed homes. Just remember that, if your neighborhood allows trick-or-treating, you could invite young children to your property, meaning you’ll want to go with an alternative to fire for safety purposes.
Battery-operated tea lights, as well as glow sticks, can be safer options in this scenario. This way, children won’t accidentally get harmed by fires while they’re out enjoying the Halloween holiday.
Create Inviting Walkways
Make sure your stairs are in a solid condition if you have them. Your railings should be fastened tightly to help people who hold on to them get up your stairs. By keeping your stairs and railings in good condition, you promote a safer landscape for all of the people who might pay your home a visit. On top of wanting to avoid hurting your guests, maintaining your stairs and railings also keeps your guests from causing further damage to your property. It’s not just intentional tricks that can cause problems for your landscape.
Establish a Clear Path
If you have anything clogging up your walkways and pathways, make sure to move them out of the way to make sure that people don’t trip over any obstructions. It’s especially difficult to see what’s littering your yard at night due to the lack of natural light, so keeping your yard clean and tidy is especially important for minimizing any chance of injury.
