Halloween is coming and it is time to start thinking about decorating your yard. Cute doesn’t work for Halloween, we want scary yard decorations, with zombies, skeletons, pirates, zombie pirates, witches and all things that are creepy and crawly (spiders) for our trick-or-treaters to see when begging for candy. When it comes to decorations, it can be easy to just head to the store and buy everything you need, but where is the fun in that? Store decorations aren’t as cool when your neighbor across the yard has the exact same one. The best lawns are always the ones that have a creative, unique, or homemade touch. An orange Neon Mama skeleton sign to point the trick-or-treaters to your house (or scare them away) could be unique. A dummy you dressed in a homemade costume holding the candy bowl could make for a very interesting decoration too. With a bit of creativity you can often make a setup that looks better than what you can get at the store! You can use sites like www.thehowtocrew.com to create your own Halloween display that will have all of your neighbours in awe. Plus, if you have kids, it can be a fun activity to keep them entertained. As you will see from some of the examples, the best yards don’t always have to be the most elaborate.
Remember – bigger is better with Halloween. The more effort you go to and the more decorations you have, the better it will look! There is one small problem with this, though. If you cover your yard with large, elaborate decorations for the best part of a week, this could damage your lawn. By covering sections of the lawn, you may stop it growing and could cause it to die. There is no need to worry though, if you move your decorations around slightly each day then you should be able to keep your lawn looking fresh. But should you forget and accidentally kill it, then it can be resurrected. You may need the lawn care programme from trugreen, so search “trugreen pennsylvania” (or wherever you are based) to find a local option. Don’t let the fear of killing your lawn stop you from going all out at Halloween!
Finally, we know that not everyone is into Halloween and others are completely against it. Obviously, this isn’t the post for you if that’s the case. If you do not support Halloween, then we suggest putting a polite notice on your door asking people not to trick or treat. Alternatively, keep your gates closed to stop people from accessing your home. If you don’t have gates, this driveway gate installer may be able to install some for you before Halloween, meaning you can lock your gates and keep your privacy. Whilst people need to accept that you don’t celebrate Halloween, you also need to accept that others thoroughly enjoy it.
So with no further ado, here are 34 scary and creative yards decorated for Halloween.
