Halloween Landscaping Ideas

Whoever said that Halloween was only for kids has clearly never seen a Halloween yard.

Trick-or-Treating is one of halloween’s most popular holiday traditions, which means halloween landscaping needs to be both fun and festive. In fact, Halloween is the perfect time to show off your decoration skills. So if you’re ready to decorate your yard, read on for some Halloween themed landscaping ideas!

If you’re looking for low-key and simple, Halloween plants are a good option. Halloween themed garden ornaments are also very popular during this season. And if you’re looking for something a little spookier but still simple, Halloween statues and vignettes would be perfect!

Halloween is also a time for trickery and surprises. So halloween lights like halloween solar stake lights and halloween animated props are great halloween yard ideas. And if your halloween house happens to get too dark at night, halloween yard lights like halloween solar path lights and halloween outdoor wall lighting would come in handy.

Let’s get to it. Here are some Halloween themes to consider when preparing your yard for Trick or Treating.


A graveyard theme is a wonderful way to liven up, or… deaden up, your yard because you can re-use the same shape over and over again – a headstone. You can get creative with the names or causes of death on the gravestone to make your yard a memorable experience for your candy seeking visitors.

Spiders, Spiders, Spiders

Spider webbing is a cost-effective way to make your yard look spooky with minimal effort. Many different size spider ornaments can make for a unique experience. A few big spiders? Hundreds of small spiders? All the spiders? The choice is yours!

The Wizard of Oz

Munchkinland, the city of Oz, the yellow brick road, a house falling on a witch, there’s a lot of different directions you could take this! The easiest way to incorporate this film into your landscaping is by putting up the scarecrow, though a bunch of flying monkeys in your yard would be quite entertaining.

Some people like to shoot for the moon when it comes to decorating for Halloween. Many landscaping companies take on the task of decorating for Halloween, so if you find yourself with a grand vision and no time, this may be your best bet.

Halloween is all about spooky fun, so enjoy it! Oh, and when a child says Trick-or-Treat, give them a treat. Nobody wants a trick. Seriously, nobody. Happy Halloween!
