Tis the Christmas season, and with that comes all the Christmas decorations. With the events of 2020, people have become more attentive to their homes and worked on many home improvement projects, like fencing, decking, landscaping, and more. As people still remain comfortably at home, now is a great time to liven the space with festive touches. Here are several stellar ideas for decorating your deck for Christmas this year.
Outdoor Christmas Tree
Are you concerned about having your Christmas tree indoors? Perhaps you have a cat, or you just don’t like cleaning up pine needles. Or, maybe you’re just looking to go extra with the decorations this year. Whatever the case, having a Christmas tree on your deck can make things all the more festive. If you intend to plant an evergreen in your yard come spring, you can buy a live tree with roots intact.
Decorating the deck for Christmas is not complete without outdoor, festive lights. If your deck has no lighting at all, it only helps to install some lights you can use year-round, such as stair lights and railing lights. For the holidays, colorful or classic string lights are usually enough to bring on the cheer.
Marylanders know full well that snow is not a common sight in this state. This year does not forecast much snow for Christmas, which means you might have more leeway when it comes to outdoor decor. Decorative items like tabletop trees, poinsettias, figurines, etc. won’t get drenched in snow.
Take from Nature
Aside from crafts and knick-knacks, decor made from natural items is both traditional and beautiful. Items include centerpieces, wreaths, door swags, potted plants, and more. You don’t even necessarily have to pay for them, either. Your own backyard can be a resource for free evergreen foliage, berries, rosehips, etc.
If you are decorating your deck for Christmas, you might be planning to enjoy it during the winter too. Stay warm on your deck with holiday-appropriate pillows and throws. If you have a fire on deck, make sure to follow safety precautions.
Before you go all-in decorating your deck, make sure it is structurally sound! Too many accidents have happened because of rotten deck posts or joists, rotten ledger boards, or shaky railing. Call United Fence and Deck for deck inspection and repairs!
