Turn Your Backyard Into a Spooky Halloween Haunt

Fall is here and Halloween is at the end of the month. Are you ready? We’re not talking about getting enough candy for the trick-or-treaters or buying the carving pumpkins. Nope, we here at Luxury Landscape Supply are asking if you’re ready for your own Halloween spooky fun. You can turn your backyard and patio space into a creepy haunted graveyard that you can enjoy. Here are some suggestions to help you get your Halloween groove on.


Your lawn is the perfect place for the graveyard. Buy Halloween tombstones and place them throughout the lawn to turn the space into a cemetery. Make sure to get skeleton hands and feet and have them sticking out of the graves as if the dead are trying to escape their final resting places. Change the bulbs in your solar walkway lighting to black lights, and buy glow in the dark tombstones for added effect. If you prefer, enlist the kids in a fun craft day and make the tombstones yourselves.

Witch’s Cauldron

Turn your fire pit into a place for witches to make their brew and cast their spells. Put a large cauldron in the center of the fire pit and place scary or fun witches all around it. Again, you can buy the witches or make them. Use black ice so steam comes out of the cauldron. You can also accent it with spider webs filled with the creepy crawlers and rats. Play creepy music through your outdoor speakers and don’t forget the black lighting around the cauldron, too. This decoration is worth not using your fire pit temporarily. It’s only for Halloween!

Hang Halloween Lights

Who says Christmas is the only time you can hang holiday lights? Halloween lights are found easily and you have a large variety to choose from. If you prefer bulbs, buy orange strands. You can also buy pumpkins, bats, skeletons, witches, mummies, and strands of many other lighted Halloween monsters. String the lights along your patio cover and anywhere else you feel like a little Halloween fun in your back yard. Just make sure to purchase outdoor lights. You can use the bulb strands on your trees and the character strands on the patio.
