What you need for a green garland is up to you. Skimmia, Ilex Crenata, Hellebore and Chamaecyparis are four outdoor stars of Christmas that never miss, but you could also use pine cones and holly leaves. Let your creativity run wild and have fun with different types of branches. Big and small, green and red - diversity is what makes it fun!
Where you hang the decoration is also entirely up to you. A green garland from wall to wall, from roof to shed, from decking to veranda: your outdoor space determines your creation. If you aren't lucky enough to have an outdoor space that you're able to decorate, why not bring the greenery inside? Think outside the box and drape a green garland around a window frame, or wrap a garland around the legs of your Christmas table.
