Now that Halloween is here, many commercial property owners are beginning to prepare for the holiday season. Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas, and New Year’s will be here before we know it. In addition to figuring out holiday schedules, planning get-togethers, and buying gifts, business owners must also decorate their landscaping for the holidays.
Nowhere is this truer than in neighborhoods that have homeowners associations (HOA). HOAs must contend with individual homeowners’ decorations and decorating landscaping throughout the neighborhood at large. It can be a daunting task, especially if they try to do it without the help of experienced commercial landscapers.
3 Tips for Getting Your Neighborhood’s Landscaping Ready for the Holiday Season
The first thing that your HOA should do to get your landscaping ready for the holidays is connect with an experienced commercial landscaping service and collaborate on a decorating plan for the holiday season. From there, the HOA and commercial landscaping service can work together to bring their plan to life. The following are three tips for HOAs to follow to get their neighborhood ready for the holiday season:
- Set Boundaries – Many of your residents will have their own ideas about how your neighborhood and their property should be decorated. While you don’t want to discourage their creativity or individuality, your HOA should set some boundaries about what they can and can’t do. You don’t want what they’re doing to cross lines you don’t want crossed or take away from the decorations/landscaping design that you decide upon as an HOA.
- Add Holiday Plants – Dotting your landscaping with colorful plant life can really add to the holiday spirit of your seasonal flower rotation. Begonias and poinsettias are both popular choices for this time of year.
- Lighting and Water Features – You can never go wrong with traditional holiday lighting installations. However, if you have water features on your property, you also have the option to light those as well. Doing so can really add a special flare to your neighborhood’s holiday décor. Lighting your water features using colors like red and green or blue and white is popular. Plus, it’s relatively inexpensive, because it generally only involves replacing the existing lightbulbs that light your water features with red, green, blue, and white bulbs.
