Christmas lawn decorations are not what they used to be. Take a look around your neighborhood, and you will see this, from LED displays to large commercial sized displays, and everything in between. No matter what size yard you have, there are Christmas lawn decorations to make your yard look festive.
You can start with something simple, or go big, it is really up to you. Christmas lawn decorations don’t have to be costly either. You can also make some of your own.
There are plenty of do it yourself websites that can show you step by step how to accomplish a particular display. However, nine times out of ten, there is electricity involved, and if you are not comfortable with that, then purchasing one is the way to go.
More and more Christmas lawn decorations that are lighted are lit with LED bulbs. This is great because the bulbs last longer and cost less to use. That means more money for more yard decorations.
Many people choose to keep their holiday decor to lights around the trim of their home, strung upon the trees, and through the shrubs. Others make it more of a theatrical event. Many homeowners that go all out choose a theme to their decor.
Some have a winter wonderland, a Santa’s workshop, or a North Pole theme. Others choose to celebrate with a nativity scene or a menorah and other religious symbols.
During the Holidays, many homes get profiled on the news or in the local papers as the “must see home” with the best Christmas lawn decorations. These people go big, and they tend to get bigger every year.
Since some of these large scale decorations can be expensive, many people purchase only one new one a year. This keeps the people in the neighborhood and other passers-by coming back year after year to see what has been added.
New technology has helped in the field of animated decorations too. There are all kinds of software that you can use in conjunction with your Chrismtas lights and computer to make the lights animated. You can make the lights dance to the music, so to speak.
You can also make all the other yard displays move to the music as well. This is very eye catching and a real crowd pleaser. There are some companies that are making all that high tech stuff much simpler for the average Joe.
You can simply plug the system into a regular outside outlet, and then plug the lights into the system. Then, you can choose from a range of music and speed, set a timer, and go. These systems are much simpler, but if you want to take an amateur swat at it, it’s the way to go.
Have you ever driven through one of those amazing light displays, and thought about having one of those in your front yard? Well, you can.
There are many companies that sell the commercial displays on a smaller scale so that you can have that same festive light display in your yard. The Holidays are a festive time of year, so why not make your yard the envy of the neighborhood with an eye catching display!
