Christmas time is here! So that can only mean one thing for your garden – it’s time to start thinking about decorations. Whether you’re going all out and making your garden the envy of the neighbourhood with an enticing lights displays, or you’re someone that prefers a few simple little additions here and there – like a holly wreath or a few festive ornaments – here at North Valley Composites we’ve put together a few suggestions on how you can decorate your garden for Christmas. Light the way with some festive bulbs Lighting up your garden is by far one of the best ways to bring some of that festive feeling to your garden space. There are a range of options out there when it comes to festive lighting, and many of these can be purchased with different power sources like electrical mains, solar panels and batteries. Need some inspiration? Try hanging some fairy lights over your composite fencing and gates, as this will create a festive border around your garden. Alternatively, you could consider adding some small lanterns to an area of your garden to create a cosy Christmas nook! Display some Christmassy decorations You can’t have a Christmas themed garden without a few classic decorations! Baubles, holly, pinecones and fir trees are all staples of Christmas decoration, so they’re all great options for bringing a festive aura to your garden space. Think about placing a few bits of holly around your garden lanterns, or scattering some pinecones around any trees you may have. The possibilities really are endless when it comes to decorations, so to help narrow down your options, make sure to take into account the size of your garden and the features it already possesses, as this can help you plan out a really eye-catching Christmas setting that’s tailored specifically to suit your space. Upcycle old items to create new Christmas themed features Decorating your garden for the festive period doesn’t have to be a pricey venture! You’d be surprised just how much Christmas fun can be found in taking old and unwanted items from around your home and turning them into decorations for your garden. It’s also a great activity you can do as a family to celebrate the season. For example, old wellies can very easily be turned into festive plant pots by filling them with soil, pine cones and mini fir trees, and old jars make for fantastic Christmas lanterns and can also be brightened up with some greenery, berries, ribbons, fake snow and of course, candles. These are just a few ideas – ultimately, there are a range of cost effective ways you can bring some festive cheer to your garden space! They can be applied to any garden setting, and they’re a great way of bringing a new perspective to your space (albeit, a temporary one).
