Landscape with Lighting

If you have outdoor landscaping that swirls and curves throughout your backyard, add to the decor with outdoor lighting. Line concrete bricks with solar light fixtures that will absorb solar power from the sunlight for an evening glow with the stored up energy, or set up path lighting near pathways. You could also use rope lighting laced throughout garden spaces for a bright and beautiful look.

Hang Lanterns from Tree to Tree

When you want to create a romantic, yet celebratory, atmosphere, use lighting for an evening party space in your backyard. String up hanging lanterns from one tree to another creating an open space for casual seating, outdoor dining or even a dance floor. If you don't have three to four trees, connect the lighting with tall poles, columns, a basketball hoop or other sturdy fixtures in your backyard.

Make Your Yard Sparkle with String Lights

Whether they're going from tree to tree or adorning your deck rails, strings of small lights always make your space shine. If you want to add a unique touch, use cupcake shells or paper cups to create colorful lanterns. All you have to do is pierce a hole through the base of the shells or cups and insert each bulb on the string. You also place battery-powered twinkle lights into mason jars as centerpieces for outdoor tables or patio.

Light Up Your Pergola, Gazebo or Canopy

There's nothing quite like a cozy outdoor nook to create a comfortable and pleasant space. If you have an outdoor shade, you can add lighting to make it more evening-friendly. Encircle a gazebo or canopy with white rope or string lighting, or hang lanterns from the slats of your pergola for a bright and merry patio.
