Looking for some inspiration for your next Halloween Landscape Decorations? Here are a few super fun, budget-friendly ideas for your next project. Whether you love Fall or not, there’s no denying that it is the perfect time to experiment with some simple landscaping ideas on a budget.
That’s why here at Victory Lawn Care Services, we generated a list of five Fall fun and simple landscaping ideas for your front yard. That way, by the time Halloween comes about, you and your family will have the spookiest Halloween landscape design(s) on the block.
1.Find Some Sweet, Edible, Sugar Pumpkins to Add to Your Front Porch
Not to be confused with your typical, run-of-the-mill, jack-o-lantern carving pumpkins, these pumpkins are sweeter, smaller and are full of nice, juicy, orange flesh. They can be found in either the produce section of grocery stores such as Kroger or Trader Joes or at farm stands such as the ones at Jones Orchard and Priddy Farms. Because they are often used to bake pumpkin pie, sometimes, they are referred to as “pie pumpkins.”
So if you’re running low on cash and need a way to have both your Halloween decorations and food ingredients all at once, then feel free to purchase one or two of these pumpkins for your front yard. At least your kids would have something to decorate this year.
2. Add Some Spooky Cobwebs to Your Front Porch And Pumpkins.
Perfect for the folks who don’t have a lot of time or money to “Halloweenify” their entire house, this simple, yet timeless trick will help get the job done in no time.
All you need is…
A package (or two) of cheap, cotton cobwebs that you can easily get at Walmart, Target, or your local dollar store
Optional: A pair of scissors.
From there, you can…
Open up the bag
Take out the cobwebs
Basically, you can do whatever you want with your webs to stretch them across your front yard.
3. Design a Creepy Crawly Walkway Using Petrified Wood and Old Halloween Decorations
If you’re one of those folks who happen to collect petrified wood and old Halloween decorations for a living, then kudos to you! You’re standing on a gold mine.
Assuming that you don’t plan on having a permanent walkway on your front lawn, then all that you need to do is either hand draw, take a picture of your lawn, and use Google Maps to print out a picture of your lawn.
Then, using whatever tools that you have, plan out how you want your walkway to look.
Then, rummage into your closet and garage and take out whatever is inside it.
From there, you can refine and tweak your design to however you see fit.
If you need help either mapping out your design or bringing it to life, here at Victory Lawn Care Services, our professional landscapers can certainly help you out with that.
4. Use Your Brightly Colored Foliage to Create A Fantastic Halloween Scare Scene
Whether it be stuffing some plastic jack-o-lantern bags with some fallen leaves or making a homemade scarecrow out of them, there’s no doubt that your brightly colored foliage makes a great Halloween decoration.
But wait, what if I don’t have time to do any of that? Well as far as we can tell you, the easiest way to use your foliage would be to either rake your leaves into a pile and arrange it however you want according to your Halloween decorations or leave them on your lawn(which we don’t recommend).
It may not be healthy for your lawn, but at least it will make your fake tombstones appear more authentic on Halloween night.
5. Add Some Perennials or Any Other Fall Flowers To Your Front Lawn or Driveway
Okay, to be fair, the idea of adding fall flowers to your front lawn or driveway doesn’t sound scary at all. However, if you want to use them as a prop for an upcoming Halloween play, film, or festival, then at least you have some options available on hand.
A lot of people prefer planting some hostas and posies to their front lawn at this time. Some full-bloom chrysanthemums and mums can be purchased at the store right now, however, chances are they won’t survive throughout the whole season.
