Lawn and Garden Zombies

Updated on November 8, 2014

Decorate Your Yard for the Zombie Apocalypse ...or just for Halloween

When the lifelike undead crawl out of your lawn... when a zombie garden gnome lurks in your petunias... when even your whimsical flamingo lawn ornaments are reduced to mere skeletons of their pink plastic selves... can the threatened horror-flick Apocalypse (or Halloween night) be far away?

Just look what those nasty undead creatures have done to the traditional garden ornaments we live with so happily in our landscapes, outside the spooky season...

As the spooky dark October nights begin to draw in, what's a person to do? Better get decorating!

At the very least, a bit of appropriately ghoulish yard decoration might make the Walking Dead feel at home, and perhaps they'll save your brains to eat last, after all the neighbors.

Sorry about your Lawn Flamingo... It's looking a bit Undead

Do you really think those cheerfully-kitschy flamingo lawn ornaments would be safe from a zombie attack? There's nothing creepier to look at than the remnants of a pink plastic lawn decoration, a bird stripped to its bones and yet still upright, looking for all the world as if it hardly noticed the small matter of a zombie attack in its recent past - or is the flaming a zombie itself?

Do you really think those pink flamingo lawn ornaments would be safe from a zombie attack? Of course not... and here's the scary result. A skeleton flamingo statue is a Halloween ornament so creepy, you'll want to display it in your garden all year round, just for the daily frisson of horror to wake you up in the morning.

 

The Zombie of Montclair Moors - 3-Piece Outdoor Halloween Decoration - Undead Guy is crawling out of his garden grave to come eat your brains!

Best Outdoor Zombie Decorative Figure Ever

Are you quite desperate to have a resin torso and arms half-buried in your own herbaceous border? No worries. Snag your own creepy undead garden companion here.

The most wonderfully horrid of all half-buried lawn zombies has got to be The Zombie of Montclaire Moors - Henri Toscano's blood-chilling (can we say "life like," about the undead?) cast resin sculpture, available at the very obliging Amazon.com. Just imagine the delight (or revulsion) of your visitors as they're greeted by the clawing hands and pale staring eyes of a recently undead young man who appears to be rising from the grave amidst your decorative shrubbery...

Watch out for the Zombie Gnome Invasion - It's only a matter of time...

I think we all know that garden gnomes are inherently evil to begin with. And they're sure to be among the first to join the ranks of the undead when the Zombie Apocalypse comes. Why not install a zombie gnome or several in your garden right now, and start getting used to the idea?You can score a whole family of short and pointy-eared decorative ghouls for cheap online at Amazon, if there's a shortage in your local high-classed emporium.

Zombie Garden Gnome

This particular zombie gnome is my current favorite for lawn and garden gruesome decor, probably because it is in a crawling stance - ideal for placing under a shrub or in a lush potted plant. All surreptitious and stealthy, just the way zombies do tend to creep up on you.

 

Miscellaneous Body Parts of the Undead - Tasteful Yard Decorations for Halloween

Let us be brutally frank - when it comes to hoards of zombies in your yard and garden, less is often more. If a full moaning crowd of undead figures is a bit over-the-top for even those in your family who most revel in the horror genre, try a few tasteful body parts or the zombie's upper body alone. As the most skilled of burlesque entertainers can tell us, sometimes it is what is concealed that thrills more than what is revealed...

Bloody Severed Human Hand - Yum!

Clawing its grisly way out of your garden mulch, the single bloody hand of a zombie's victim is cleverly simulated in lifelike foam rubber, realistically red-splattered in post-apocalypse style...

 

Partial Zombie Figure - Uprising!

One ghoulish undead being claws its way up from the earthy grave, holding a lantern, the better to spot his victims (or light the path to your Halloween party). You cannot hide!

 

Scream here!

      The undead guy who's crawling out of the ground is absolutely awesome. The gnome zombies are new for me, that's a creepy cool idea.

      I love zombies. I have been working on a paper mache zombie for a year now but buying one already done for the yard seems like the easier way to go. Great lens

      Now that is one very scary zombie baby! I am totally creeped out. Love the zombie flamingo. I'm now picturing a sadistic prankster planting about 100 of those psycho flamingoes all around a retirement home complex to scare unsuspecting residents who arrive home after dark. I know... my mind is a bit scary! ;-)
