The race for the spookiest display is on, and Sunstate Companies, provider of landscaping services Las Vegas, is already working on some spooktacular projects. But don’t be scared. Sometimes the most impact can be achieved with just a few elements that can turn your house from ordinary into Halloween ready, all while staying within budget and home-owner association rules. Here’s how:

Create a focal point. While it’s tempting to spread the holiday spirit all over the lawn (and maybe even place a few ghosts in the trees), truly impressive displays have one focal point – the most gruesome, colorful and scary element that puts the rest of the decorations into perspective. How about a three-foot tall Dracula or a haunted tree?

Consider decorating a family project. Maybe your kids would prefer to make their own scare crow out of their clothes and your old baseball hats. If not, strategically placing ghosts and other vampire bats around your front yard will be just fine.

For elegant displays, pass on the characters and stay with classical harvest theme. If you have several large pumpkins, preferably of different heights, at your disposal, place them together in a picturesque pile to create an impactful attention-drawing element. Echo this theme with orange lanterns lining the path to the front door and a harvest wreath. Also consider seasonal flowers such as chrysanthemums and shrubs with colorful foliage as part of your landscaping Las Vegas strategy.
