If you are looking for outdoor Christmas decorations, look no further. Our attention naturally turns towards decorating our interiors At this time of year, we shouldn’t forget to invest in some of them Christmas garden decorations To make sure our outdoor spaces also get the festive treatment.
Whether it’s your backyard, front garden, porch, patio or even porch, a few tweaks can make the outside as fun as the inside, adding Christmas cheer not only to your home but to the community as well. Here’s how you can spruce up your garden this Christmas…
1. Choose an outdoor Christmas tree
Extend the festive cheer to your outdoor space with a gorgeous tree. From simple to extravagant, outdoor Christmas trees are the perfect way to light up your garden – and make it the best street display ever.
Not sure which one to choose? There is a lot to consider when choosing an outdoor tree. Do you want to reuse an artificial tree every year or do you prefer a real tree? Is it strong enough to withstand winter weather? Where will it be placed?
While traditional Nordmann fir or Norway spruce are among the most popular choices, artificial species will not need watering and also put on quite stunning displays. The same is true of twig trees, stellate trees, and modern cone trees with multi-colored lights. You will also find small potted trees, which look great on either side of the front door.
2. Your door surface
There’s something so magical about outdoor Christmas decorations, especially as the rows of houses begin hanging door wreaths, wreaths, and turning on the sparkling figurines for passersby to enjoy.
3. Hang the lights
Spend some time making your garden glow with outdoor Christmas lights. From wrapping tree trunks and branches, to placing solar lights on the ground, and hanging icicle lights around your shed, the options are endless when it comes to lighting your garden. Don’t forget to set it on a timer (or turn it off before bed) to save on your energy bill.
“To avoid electrical hazards, make sure your Christmas lights are suitable for outdoor use and won’t be affected by wet winter weather. The same goes for your extension leads. You can buy durable outdoor extension cords,” says Adam Pawson, marketing director at Safestyle UK. If you don’t already have one.”
4. Make it fun
There’s nothing more magical than driving down the streets during the holiday season. Once you have your twinkle lights hanging, why not add accent figurines? Whatever you choose, it is sure to impress every passerby.
5. Consider a fire pit
Winter weather may be coming, but a fire pit will make a big difference. While it may seem natural to hunker down indoors when temperatures drop, a roaring fire (and a cozy throw) can add to the enjoyment of your garden.
If you can’t snag a fire pit this summer, some of the best ones to consider include large steel tents (which also allow you to cook a wood-fired feast), a steel fire pit, and round clay fire pits. Ideal for small spaces.
6. Choose holiday plants
It’s a really good idea to add seasonal colors like red and white to your garden over Christmas, and flowers like Hellebore (Christmas rose) are a great choice. They are light pink and white, produce large space-filling leaves and generally last between late winter and early spring.
Another white flower to consider is Clematis Jingle Bells; These flowers have an off-white color and usually bloom from December to January. Clematis Jingle Bells will need some pruning to keep their size down as they can grow up to five meters high.
However, nothing says Christmas quite like holly (Ilex aquifolium); A hardy evergreen shrub that produces abundant red berries and adds lots of rich, brilliant color to your outdoor space. You can also take cuttings to use in wreaths, floral arrangements, and vases. Buy from Thompson & Morgan or Crocus.
