Christmas Yard Decorations – Planning
An important consideration when planning your Christmas yard decorations is your available space! It is important to plan how your display will look so you can really appreciate and most importantly see all your yard decorations! It is also good practice to decide on a decorating theme. Do you prefer traditional Christmas symbols or more modern Christmas decorations? Once you have planned your festive display and set out your yard decorations it is time to switch on the lights and let the whole neighbourhood appreciate your hard work!

Christmas Yard Decorations – Solar Lights
Why not consider using Solar lights for your yard decorations this year? Solar lights are environmentally friendly and money saving! They store energy from the sun during the day and use this energy to light up when it turns dark. Solar lights don’t need any plugs or electrical sockets so can be placed anywhere. An important benefit of solar lights is that they are much safer than conventional light as no electricity is required.

Christmas Yard Decorations – Safety Information
However you decide to decorate your yard or garden, you should be aware of some important security and safety issues to ensure everyone has a happy and safe Christmas.

  • Ensure that all lights used in outdoor yard Christmas displays are suitable for outside use, they have to be weatherproof. All electric Cables should be kept away from water and should be plugged into a grounded outdoor electrical socket. If you are in any doubt check with a qualified electrician

  • Using a timer on your yard or garden lights is a good way to ensure that Christmas lights do not get left on for too long, overheated cables can be a fire hazard. It is also worth remembering that decorations get hot if left on for prolonged periods, make sure that your children and pets are kept away from your yard and garden display.

  • Unfortunately there are people who don’t get into the holiday spirit and feel the need to damage outdoor Christmas displays and decorations. Sadly, Christmas decorations are attractive to the local thief. An wired alarm system is worth considering, it can be laid on the yard lawn near your display and is set off by anyone walking across it.

  • Damage to yard and garden decorations and displays can also be accidental. Inflatable yard decorations for example need to be secured as high winds could blow them into the road and cause an accident.

  • Plastic decorations are ideal for outside yard and garden displays. A Nativity crib made from wood can rot if there is lots of rain over the festive period. If you use straw to give your Nativity crib a more authentic look consider that wild animals and insects will suddenly find your yard it very appealing!
