How to Decorate Your Garden This Christmas

Christmas wouldn’t be the same without sparkling lights and shiny baubles to adorn your Christmas tree and hang around the house. Making your house reflect the festive season is a great tradition, and a sure way to get everyone in the spirit, and here at R & J Landscapes, we say why stop at just your house? Turning your garden into a personal winter wonderland is the perfect way to celebrate Christmas this year, so we’ve recommended a few ways to decorate your garden for the holiday season.

Lights

Hanging lights outside your house can be a great way to get in the festive spirit, and entertain others as they pass-by too. Sparkling or multicoloured lights can create a lovely ambience, whilst themed lights such as icicles hung around trees and shrubbery can be the perfect festive addition.

Plants

Red and green are traditional Christmas colours, and what better way to reflect this than with a touch of nature in your garden. Evergreen conifers make just as good an outdoors Christmas tree as they do an indoors one, so place yours in an obvious spot in the garden and string some weather resistant lights around it for a magical feel.
You can also look for festive alternatives such as an Acer Palmatum, which looks lovely in your garden, and can also be used as a gift or centrepiece.

Wreaths

Vamp up plain wooden fences or doors by hanging some lovely Christmas wreaths around your garden. These are a great way to add the finishing touches to a Christmas-themed garden, and come in a huge range of sizes, styles, and colours so you can find one that suits your home best.

Window Dressing

A simple dressing around your windows can be an excellent decoration for the Christmas season. From artificial snow to homemade garlands or festive-coloured jars, placing some decorative dressing around the windows is a pretty addition that can be enjoyed from both outdoors and indoors.

Baubles/ornaments

Christmas ornaments and baubles needn’t be restricted to the indoors, as they are also the perfect item to decorate your garden with over the festive season. Place baubles in trees and around your window frames, or just in pretty clusters on your outdoor furniture for something different.
