Backyard Halloween Prep: Spookify Your Backyard!
October has been a month of preparation for the creepiest and most fun day of the season...Halloween!! Originating from long ago, the celebration of Halloween is truly a chance for your luxury backyard to shine like never before. By utilizing your space to make the most of the holiday and enhance the experience for children, family, and friends, your luxury backyard is living up to its investment. At Groundscapes, we bring over 20 years of experience working with some of the finest commercial enterprises in the Omaha Metro and La Vista area. During that time, we’ve learned a thing or two from our partners about the importance of (luxury) landscaping for your business and the impact it can have on your customers and employees. Read on to find out what to do this final week before Halloween to make your backyard hauntingly perfect!
1. Decorate With Ghostly Lighting
From colored to flashing lights and everything in between, our team at Groundscapes can present a variety of options that perfectly match your Halloween backyard vibe!! Impress guests with a mini light show of sorts by stringing your lights around your outdoor structure, along the outdoor kitchen, and even install new and colored lights in your patio lined lamps. Line the walkway with torches or other incredible fire features, which are certainly necessary to complete your ghostly and haunted backyard aesthetic. Our versatile lighting options can really go anywhere- around the doorway, above the patio, around the outdoor structures, or even strung throughout your landscape! Get creative and get spooky.
2. Haunted Hardscapes
Most likely, you and your guests will be enjoying the Halloween festivities out on the backyard hardscapes, where the cozy ambience hangs in the air like the full moon. In order to properly set up your space for a Halloween gathering or party with friends and family, making sure your luxury hardscape is up to par is vital. Consider additions that inspire, from spooky and aesthetic fire torches, bowls, or lamps to artfully hung cobwebs and plush fall designed outdoor furniture. Take advantage of every type of Hardscape, from the walls and steps to the patio and outdoor kitchen!!
3. Landscape Spooks
What better time to completely turn your landscape upside down than Halloween- and we mean this in the best way possible! Especially for younger kids and guests that you invite over, having your landscape set up so they can be entertained while the adults lounge on the decorated patio will help keep the party going far into the evening. Using mini lamps, create a maze in the backyard to keep the kids busy as they try to find the exit, extra points for lamps that change colors! Set up a pumpkin decorating area in a safe space and have a contest or hide small bags of candy amongst the water feature or hedges for the kids to find- the possibilities are endless. With an expansive and well cared for luxury backyard, everyone has a chance to have fun.
With a week to go until Halloween, we hope this post inspires you to get started on preparing your luxury backyard for some safe and exciting, spooky fun!
