The current spirit of the season is preparing for Halloween. While children and adults alike are designing their costumes for the night, neighborhoods across the Metroplex are making sure their decorations are the talk of the town.
Although decorations are important during this season, so is your lawn maintenance leading up to the big trick or treat night. Before you start shoving decorations into the ground, take a look at some of these tips that will not only keep your visitors safe but will keep your lawn happy for the rest of the fall season as the temperatures drop.
Rake Your Leaves for a Clear Path
Many Halloween decorations involve plugging in elaborate props that are set up on your lawn. Making sure that you have a clear path for your trick or treaters or party-goers is important. After all, no one wants to trip over your wires on their way to your front door.
Texas’ fall season means that the leaves on the trees in your yard will soon blanket your lawn. Keeping up with these leaves and raking them up regularly is a great idea for the season. Not only is it a healthy habit for your lawn, but it also creates a clear path that can safely guide guests to your door on Halloween night.
Use Decorations that Illuminate
Although we don’t recommend using flammable decorations like candles on your lawn, decorating with illuminating decorations is a great way to attract attention to your yard. We recommend purchasing some Jack-O-Lanterns with electric lighting built in. There are also many festive lighting options that you can hang on your home or on your garden paths in order to add some character to your front yard.
Get Your Lawn Care Done for the Big Night
Since Halloween is all about making yourself the center of attention, take a minute to schedule some lawn maintenance before the big night. Make your lawn the pride of your neighborhood by having your lawn maintenance professional:
- Cut your lawn at the proper height
- Trim your hedges
- Trim your trees
Set Up in the Driveway
If your lawn maintenance specialist has designed your lawn to be elaborate, you may not even want people walking near the main area of your yard. Trick or Treating is usually an event that lasts a couple of hours. So, if you want to keep your lawn clear, grab a table, some decorations, and lawn chairs as your set up for the night. Create a nice treat area in your driveway where you and your loved ones can people watch while ensuring that your lawn remains safe.
