Halloween is almost here, which means costumes are selected and candy is purchased – but is your home ready to welcome trick-or-treaters? Consider these projects to ensure visitors have a safe and eerie-sistible good time:

Porch Facelift

It’s easy to let clutter collect on your porch, so be sure to give it a tidy before the big day. Sweep off excess debris, dust off your doormat and make sure the steps leading up to it are stable.

Path Landscaping

If you’ve been meaning to replace or fix up the loose pavers in your front walkway, now is the time! Doing so can help prevent tripping and allow trick-or-treaters to safely make it to your door.

Outdoor Lighting

It’s called “spooky season” for a reason, but to avoid things getting downright scary, make sure your outdoor areas are well lit. Replace bulbs in walkway lighting and keep a porch light on to let visitors know they’re welcome!

Seasonal Decor

Don’t forget the best part of any holiday season: decorations! Whether your taste is simple and understated or flashy and festive, making sure your home looks the part will allow you to lean into the fun of the season. Try setting out carved pumpkins, swapping in a seasonal doormat or even playing Halloween music to set the mood!
