Decorating Outdoor Trees for Christmas


Nothing speaks louder to the holiday season than having a fully decorated tree for Christmas. Families can experience that special feeling of taking home the perfect pine and adding their favorite ornaments to keep things festive all month long. Most of the time, these trees are decorated inside. But what about your outdoor trees?

There’s so much that can be done with the beautiful, natural trees that dot your front lawn. Whether you have exotic potted trees, or you’ve planted a few large arbors to admire, you can easily decorate them in a way that stays true to the winter wonderland theme.

Need some ideas? This simple guide can give you the spark of inspiration needed to transform your beautiful lawn trees into a piece of Christmas that will surely have Santa coming down to visit.

Any kind of tree will do. Grab some lights, gather some elegant decorations, and start building your Christmas dream! For more lawn decorating tips and professional lawn care in Los Angeles, contact Lawnscape today.

Wrap Your Trunks with Gorgeous Lights

You don’t need to get too technical, but there is a little bit of planning required before you can start wrapping lights around the grand trunks of your trees. Make sure you have a good grasp on the circumference and spacing of your trunk, so you know just how many lights to put on there.

The choice of light color is up to you – make things as festive as you want! A popular idea is to use colored lights if your home is decorated with white lights, and vice versa. That will add a lot of depth and variety for your neighbors and family members to enjoy!

The process of wrapping your trees is simple, just make sure you understand where your outlets and extension cords are. You can easily hide your cords in bushes and behind flowerbeds to keep things looking natural.

Large Ornaments Are Your Friend

After your trunks (and possibly branches) are wrapped, you may find that the leaves themselves are quite bare. One thing you can do to add to your winter wonderland look is to add large-sized ornaments to your trees.

You can hang large gold or red ball-shaped ornaments at different heights and sizes for an impression of depth. Add twinkling stars or smaller ornaments in between, so that your yard has lots of variety. You can even add natural elements like pinecones or frost-tipped wreaths to keep your trees looking full and happy.

Not Enough Trees? Just Add More!

There’s nothing wrong with keeping in line with the holiday season by adding some mini evergreen trees of your own. You can easily accent your already-gorgeous yard with some potted spruces or cypresses. You can cluster them around the trunks of your planted trees or even put them out on your front porch to give your Christmas guests a friendly greeting.

These trees can be decorated just like you’d decorate your indoor tree – lights, ornaments, little red fruits – you name it! Adding little potted trees adds a pop of color and festivity to complete your winter wonderland look.
