4 Steps to a Halloween-Ready Yard

4 Steps to a Halloween-Ready Yard

October has arrived – is your yard ready for Trick-or-Treaters and other Halloween guests? To ensure it is, our landscape designer in Delaware County recommends finishing these simple yard maintenance tasks before October 31st:

  1. Make sure your guests can see in the dark. The sun sets earlier in autumn, so it's essential to place lights in your yard to guide Trick-or-Treaters and party-goers to your door. Having a well-lit front yard will also discourage burglars from attempting to break into your home on Halloween and throughout the rest of the year.
  2. Clear your walkways of debris. Autumn leaves may add a spooky Halloween feel to your home, but they tend to be very slippery. Therefore, it's best to rake them to an area of your yard that doesn't receive much foot traffic. While you're at it, you should also move any items in your yard that could potentially cause young children to trip and fall.
  3. Trim trees and shrubs thoroughly. Overgrown branches and shrubs can cut and scratch your visitors. You definitely don't want that, so as Halloween approaches, be sure to get out your garden clippers and tame any overgrown plants in your yard.
  4. Do any necessary repair work. Your final step in making your yard a kid- and visitor-friendly place for Halloween is to take care of any overdue repair or maintenance jobs: fixing a broken section of the sidewalk, removing rusty nails from your deck, etc. Doing these tasks will give you peace of mind you've done everything possible to prevent people from getting hurt on your property.

By completing this checklist, you'll create a safe environment for any Trick-or-Treaters, friends and family members that may be stopping by this Halloween season. Not to mention you'll get to enjoy a yard that’s well-lit and tidy!
