10 Tips for Decorating Your Lawn

Decorating your lawn is a great way to show how much you care about it. You want to make sure that if people drive by and see how beautiful your yard looks, they will stop in for all of the great services you offer! There are many ways to decorate your lawn, but these 10 tips should help get you started on how to do so.

1. Choose a color scheme for your lawn

Environment affects colors in two ways: first, it is typically the sun that determines whether a surface appears light or dark. The second environmental factor – and one you can control - is temperature.

The key when choosing paint for the outside is its hue. You want something saturated with strong pigments, which will stay true over time even as they are exposed to sunlight.

Color psychology also plays into how you want to use color in your space.

Red – which is not generally a hue found outdoors because it fades quickly - symbolizes intensity and passion.

Blue on the other hand signifies calmness and peace as well as creativity. You may need to experiment with different hues of blue before settling on one that suits your personality.

Other considerations include integrating patterns, textures, and light.

Another idea for outside the home is to use an earth-tone palette of beige, browns, greens, and yellows that contrasts with bolder colors inside. This will give you more visual interest without overwhelming your space.

You might also want to include something unexpected like large pieces of wood or bark as accents on a neutral background

Determine how many colors you want, choose what the primary color should be

Decide how much of that color to include in your overall scheme, make sure everything is balanced with no one thing overpowering another. For example, if you have a lot of red in your scheme, use less blue.

2. Add an outdoor rug to create more space for relaxing outside

If you don't want to spend money on a rug, then use sheets from your linen closet or an old tablecloth.

Cut the cloth into squares and lay them out in a pattern how you like it. -Leave something interesting off of the center square so that people can take note before they leave of how cleverly decorated your lawn is!

Use different colors to create a fun pattern.

Do all of this by the time people are coming over or else they'll be catching you at a bad time and then how will your lawn stand out?

If you're new to decorating, don't worry! There's always something that can make your yard look great. continue writing the next sentences for long-form content.

How To Get Started:

Pick an area of the lawn where nothing is growing in order to avoid trampling on it when walking around outside with guests.

Dig up some dirt from another part of your property so that there's more space for decoration (but not too close because why would anyone want their backyard view taken away?).

Layout your rug how you would like it to be and then decorate with flowers, a tablecloth, or whatever else you have on hand.

This is one way that I like my garden, it gives me something nice and colorful on which I can focus when working as well as giving visitors something lively for their eyes. It also makes summer feel closer! The best thing about this type of decoration has been how easy it was - all you need are some clothespins and rugs from local stores in order for them not only to be pleasing but practical.

Tip: If you are not sure how to decorate, try looking at pictures online for some inspiration. This will help get your creative juices flowing!

Tip: If there is something in particular that you want but can't find it in stores, then use an app like Etsy or Amazon to order one

5. Create a welcoming entrance with a front porch or walkway with stepping stones 

When creating a welcoming entrance, it's up to you to choose how your entrance going to be.

Do you want visitors to feel when walking into your yard or Would you rather have them be greeted by chaos or serenity?

You like guests to walk up the steps and onto your front porch. Do they need a soft landing with mossy stepping stones under their feet, or is a rougher surface better?

The best way to make sure that your lawn is well decorated is by using color. The first thing you need to do when designing your space outside of the home is planned out how much area you have available for decoration and how it’s going to be used. Once you have that figured out, start to think about how much color is going to work well in the space and how many colors will need to be used for it all.

Once you know how big your lawn is and how much color can go into the area, then make a list of what specific plants or flowers are going to be used.

6. Put up lights in your house so it looks cozy at night.

The last thing to do is put up lights so your home looks cozy at night.

Also, if you have a front porch or patio area that has been used for storage instead of living space, consider how much more inviting it will be when the light shines on it while people are walking by from work.

Use the stairs leading up to your house. Put up lights on the posts at either side of your home and around any trees in front so that it looks like you are inviting people inside all year long.

You can also put lights under a large tree branch or hang them from its branches for an extra special effect! Add some string lights to the porch railing, overhangs, or porch swing for a whimsical touch.

Tip: Use different colors of bulbs in varying wattages during the winter holidays, not just red or green! Red and green lights are common during this time of year, but how about a mix?

If you want a more festive feel, put up lights on the trees and bushes in your yard or add string lights to your porch for ambiance at night.

It’s important that you don't block how people can walk through the space with plants (especially if they are near driveways). Make sure there are ample lights around.

7. Plant flowers to attract pollinators and birds

Focus on native plants that provide a good variety of bird food throughout the year for nesting, migrating, and wintering birds.

Prepare your garden well to save headaches later. If your site currently has turf grass or invasive plants, you will need to remove these. If you plan ahead, an easy method is to lay down newspaper at least six sheets deep, with plenty of overlap; wet it down; cover it with 4 to 6 inches of mulch, and let it sit until you are ready to plant. Though native plants generally don't require additional fertilizer,  you may want to check with your local native plant retailer to see if enriching your soil with organic compost is a good idea. Use deep edging—putting some sort of barrier (steel or plastic edging) that goes into the ground to separate the native plant area from the lawn area—to keep out lawn grass.

Plant in spring or fall and on cooler days. Follow planting instructions carefully and get tips on mulching around plants from the plant nursery or gardening center. Water as needed after planting: Native plants are adapted to local climate conditions and generally require less added water than non-native species, in the long run.

8. Cut back the grass to create a more natural look or grow it long for a lush green carpet.

Cut down on lawn maintenance by trimming your weeds and fertilizing plants in early spring or fall when they're dormant.

Replace grass with low-growing perennials, ground covers, shrubs, or trees for year-round color and interest.

Consider planting flowering bulbs for a burst of color in the fall.

Cut back with scissors to maintain neat edges that are attractive year-round and make it easier to mow.

Cut grass at an angle when you're trimming around beds, fences, or decks so the blades don't stick out as much after they've grown back.

Cut grass with a sharp blade for more precise trimming.

Cut off any long or dry blades of grass to avoid thatch buildup, which can lead to lawn disease and pest infestation.

Cut back taller weeds by hand rather than spraying broadleaf herbicides because they may be absorbed into the soil where you don't want them.

Install plants that need partial shade, such as magnolias and camellias.

Plant trees to shade your yard or install pergolas for shading.

10. Consider adding stepping stones across wet areas so you don't have to worry about getting muddy shoes on rainy days

The first thing you can do to improve the look of your lawn is to add stepping stones across wet areas. Stepping stones help reduce mud and puddles that form when it rains or if there's a water leak from an irrigation system. You may need more than one set so you don't have any gaps in coverage, but they're fairly cheap.

Adding stepping stones across wet or muddy areas is a great way to make it easier for people to walk around the yard.

Adding some flowers and plants near the stepping stones can also be helpful in making your lawn more attractive when someone might need to walk on it.

Adding pebbles, gravel, or sand will allow people to walk on your lawn more easily.

Adding stepping stones will help people with mobility issues or children not trip when walking around the yard and playing games such as hopscotch.
