Decorating the property where the holidays can be fun, or it can be stressful. Over the last few years, holiday decorations have become bigger and better. If you are also planning to have fun with your family over the holidays and clean every nook and cranny of your property, ensure that you do not forget the lawn. Is your lawn ready for the holidays? If not, you need to try these tips. 

  • Eliminate the dead leaves

The first step in making your lawn ready for the holidays is eliminating the dead leaves. You can either rake in the leaves or use a mulching mower. If leaves are left on the lawn, they can foster fungus or mildew. Sometimes they can become a slip hazard. You can deposit them in compost, bag them and discard them as per the local regulations. You can also mulch them up with a mower. 

  • Aerate the lawn

It is also smart to aerate the lawn to keep it healthy. Doing so will allow water, air, and nutrients to reach down into the root system. It is essential for high traffic lawns, like the lawns where you are planning a holiday party. 

  • Layer with mulch

If you want to maintain the vegetable and flower beds over the holidays when people will be roaming around your property, you should get that much down. Insulate the flower and vegetable beds by adding a fresh layer of mulch. 

  • Decorate smartly

When you want the lawn to look attractive during the holiday season, you should focus on which areas to decorate. It is recommended that you decorate your sidewalks and walkways. For instance, you can line the walkway with candy canes strung with lights. It will help guide your guests to get to the front door and help avoid foot traffic on the lawn. You should know that a lawn becomes highly susceptible to matting or damage when heavily traveled, especially when snow falls.
