Holiday Light Installation on Your Home


The holidays are on the horizon. You've got the gifts, the turkey, and the invites sent out. But have you taken into consideration lighting ideas for your front lawn?

The best holiday lighting ideas are the key to making your house look great. Creative lighting ideas can make your home the talk of the block. But there's a lot more to outdoor lighting ideas than just installing them along the eaves.

It's hard to know where to start if you've just gone with standard lights year after year. So we're here to help you.

Keep reading as we give you everything you need when planning holiday lighting ideas.

1. Make Your Porch the Focus of Your Lighting

It only takes about 7 seconds to make a first impression on someone. When guests and Christmas carolers come by, they're going to spend some time waiting on your front porch. Put your best and brightest decorations here.

Use lighted wreaths, and add some nutcracker statues or Santa's boots. Lighted garlands work great for outlining your doorway. Hanging icicle lights provide some nice overhead and make it feel like a winter wonderland.

2. Create a Walkway for Your Home

Following off the last point, you want to draw the eye to your porch naturally. Do this with a lighted walkway.

Luminarias give that garden walk look that highlights the path up to your doorstep. Wow your visitors by having them pass between ranks of holiday-themed lights.

3. Fill the Empty Spaces With Standing Light Displays

Now that you've built up the most important areas, fill in the empty spaces. Good plant lighting and a walkway up to a porch are great places to start. But the decor may seem incomplete if there's a dark, empty lawn with no lighting whatsoever.

Use this space to show off your light displays. These can be those blow-up snowmen or a moving sleigh pulled by reindeer. These displays are classic additions to any home, and they're easy to set up.

Prepare Your Landscape for the Holidays With Terra Turf

Good lighting ideas can make your home the best and brightest this holiday season. Make sure to focus on the areas of your home that get the most eyeball real estate, such as the walkway and porch. Don't neglect your plants, and don't forget to fill the dark areas with creative lighting ideas.

Terra Turf is here to set up your Christmas lights this season so you don't have to. Contact us today and set up an appointment to get your lights done.
