3 Ways to Protect Your Lawn on Halloween

First off, let’s say that we love trick-or-treaters and the great Halloween tradition. Seeing all the costumes our neighbors come up with every year is a blast, and we don’t’ expect to be disappointed this year. However, trick-or-treaters are known to get excited and run to get some candy, and we want to make sure all the hard work we put into our lawn stays intact. Here are a few ways to enjoy your Halloween without having to worry about plants being trampled.

Pumpkin Decoration

Set Decorations

If you already have a pathway to your front door, this is easy! Setting jack o’lanterns or orange candles along the sides will make it easy for your neighbors to see the way they should approach your home. It also makes it more fun for them if your decorations are interactive!

Sit in the Driveway

If your driveway is in front of your house, this may be the easiest way to make sure your plants stay safe. Setting up shop on your driveway also gets you right in the middle of the action! One way we’ve seen to work well is to buy a cheap cauldron and spend a few dollars on dry ice to make fog fall onto your driveway. Bring out a few lawn chairs, a candy bowl, and a few snack and you’re good to go for the night!

Do Your Part

Finally, if you are walking your children around the neighborhood, this is a great time to teach about respecting others! Teach your children to walk on sidewalks and designated paths, besides walking straight through a yard. Your neighbors will appreciate it, and your kids will be respected, too!
