Valentine’s Day is nearly upon us, and there are many ways you can celebrate the holiday in your own outdoor space! This allows you to share the love and natural beauty with not only family and friends, but also with residents and visitors in your neighborhood. Take a look at a few of our favorite landscape decorating ideas you could incorporate into your landscape to celebrate Valentine’s Day.
If you want to set a lovely mood in your outdoor space, low lighting is a great place to start. Soft to moderate string lighting provides a warm, intimate ambiance for any outdoor activity, and are especially desirable for entertaining and dining. Whether you’re planning a romantic outdoor dinner with your significant other in front of the fireplace or hosting some friends for a Valentine’s-themed party, the accent lighting will create the perfect aura for the holiday. String lighting can be hung from the posts of an outdoor pavilion or gazebo, or even over your patio table for a warm white glow. If you’re really feeling the Valentine’s Day vibe, we recommend red-colored and heart-shaped lights to add a little extra spark to the atmosphere.
Colorful Fire Features
Pink and red hues are typically associated with Valentine’s Day. Why not play those colors up in your outdoor space? You can add these colors to your landscape seamlessly by installing fire features, such as fire pits, fireplaces, or torches. As they cast a warm red glow, fire features also provide the warmth for a more comfortable outdoor entertainment space in the colder weather. Consider hiring a landscaping company to assist you with any installations you may determine are the best fit for your outdoor space.
Pink & Red Florals
One of the more popular gifts you can give on Valentine’s Day is flowers. Do something special this year and add flowers and other plants to your landscape to help spark that Valentine’s Day feeling. Wise options such as poinsettias and roses can easily bring your landscape to life with their vibrant colors, even during the cold of winter. Just be sure that you place them in areas that are fairly warm and covered.
For those concerned about the wellbeing of real plants in the cooler elements, try incorporating artificial flowers into the space. They will provide a similar appearance without the worry about the weather conditions taking its toll on them.
