The fall season is when the Halloween preparations begin while the rusty leaves fall on the ground and depict a scary scene from a movie. The fall season is all about prepping your house for Halloween. These decorations happen everywhere; from the lawn to the porch, deck and patio.
If you live in a closely-knit neighborhood, you must have seen families prepping their lawns for trick-o-treaters. By prepping your lawn for Halloween, you don’t only attract children but also create a festive atmosphere in the neighborhood. Who does not love scary pumpkins on the lawn?
Halloween is an excellent festive day to show off your decoration skills and lawn to the whole neighborhood. As it is a popular holiday, families host dinners, friends meet each other and kids get together to listen about ghosts.
However, several deaths, accidents, and injuries happen because of unprepared lawns on Halloween. Apart from decorating your lawn with scary pumpkins, you should take all safety measures as well.
There are a thousand ways to decorate your lawn for Halloween without compromising the safety of your kids and pets.
Here are a few tips to prepare your lawn beforehand:
Trick-o-treaters always happen at night. Hence, it gets really dark when kids knock on your door to ask for candies. These kids have major chances to sustain injuries because the area is usually dark at that time and they are quite unfamiliar with the stairs and the porch following them.
To avoid serious accidents, slips, and falls, ensure to install adequate lighting, even if it means renting them out. Or, you can visit a supermarket and buy Halloween-themed lights to keep the spirit alive.
The fall season comes with an abundance of rusty leaves, broken branches, and debris on the ground. The kids might sustain injuries due to broken branches and rusty leaves.
Therefore, it is your duty as a responsible neighbor, to remove anything which could sustain injuries to the trick-o-treaters.
Halloween means a swift increase in theft. If you have a decorated porch with expensive pots, furniture, and planters, place them inside, just to be safe. Many strangers visit the neighborhood daily during the Halloween season.
Sharp edges of the shrubs and overhanging twigs can be extremely dangerous for kids passing by your house. Therefore, it is always better to mow your grass and cut down the unnecessary branches and twigs from the bushes.
The holidays are meant to be celebrated and the popular day of October, Halloween is no exception at all. Lately, we have seen a lot of Halloween decoration stores emerging and going in full swing. Therefore, the decorations for Halloween are readily available.
Skeletons, pumpkins, and lanterns are some of the popular decoration pieces that you can use to prepare your lawn. However, you must come up with a theme for eye-catching décor.
