Five Festive Landscaping Tips for the Holidays

Nov 26, 2019General

The holidays are upon us, which means you likely have plenty of friends, neighbors, and out of town guests coming by to visit. Don’t miss out on the opportunity to make a good impression and embrace the holiday spirit by sprucing up your landscaping for the occasion! Here are five festive landscaping tips sure to make your holidays a little brighter:

Five Festive Landscaping Tips for the Holidays

1. Focus on the front door.

Make a great first impression by creating a focal point of festivity at your front door. Use hanging lights, lanterns, potted plants, wreathes or garland to make friends and family feel a magical holiday welcome from the moment they arrive.

2. Festive window boxes.

If you have window boxes, the holidays are a great time to re-purpose them with plants such as poinsettias or greenery. If you want to go the extra mile, why not add some lights?

3. Plant in pots and focus along pathways.

During this gloomy time of year, it makes a big difference to give guests a warm, inviting walk up to your (amazingly decorated) front door. Use potted plants such as poinsettias or small evergreens, and battery or solar powered lanterns.

4. Utilize plants in your landscaping for wreaths.

Wreaths don’t just have to be made of evergreen boughs – in fact, some of the most beautiful and creative wreaths can likely be made from materials in your own landscaping! Any green tree trimmings, holly, herbs such as sage or rosemary, salal, arborvitae, eucalyptus, pinecones, and rustic twigs – all of these make beautiful DIY wreaths for that special front-door entrance.

5. Keep your landscaping looking healthy and cared for. 

No amount of wreath-making or poinsettia-placing can replace the impact of a well-kept landscape. Decorating is like the icing on the cake – it adds a lot of extra “wow”, but it can never cover up what you wish wasn’t there. Give yourselves and your neighbors the gift of a good investment in landscaping this season and be proud of the place you live or work.

I am always told by my neighbors that I have the best looking yard in the neighborhood…which I do. That is because of Mountain View Landscapes. They re-did my entire yard and added sprinklers, a slate patio and a wonderful water feature. My yard is beautiful and always looks perfect. The ongoing maintenance is done by a great crew that is friendly and really cares about doing a good job. They are the best. Thank you!
