String Along with Me

String lights add just the right touch of twinkle throughout your outdoor area. No glaring bright lights shining in your face, just a little glow. Whether you hang them taut, loose, straight or at an angle, the effect is the same magical.

Chandeliers Add a Touch of Class

If you have a covered area, consider adding a chandelier. Chandeliers are not just for indoor rooms anymore! Add a touch of class to any outdoor room with a chandelier, or two, or three! Even a whole collection adds a bohemian vibe.

Built-In Lights Create a Soft Way to See Steps and Add Safety

Sometimes these lights are actually built in while the patio or deck is being built, but most can be added after the project is done. You can choose wired lighting or solar lighting. Either will do the job and add the ambiance you want.

Swing for the Fences

If your backyard is enclosed by a fence, or your patio is surrounded by a wall, that’s a great place to add lighting. Lighting expands the perimeter of your yard at night and adds a feeling of coziness. It can be as simple as hanging a few lanterns on the fence.

Don’t Forget the Trees

If you are lucky enough to have trees in your backyard, include them in your lighting plan. Trees wrapped in lights or draped in lights create a mystical, woodland feel when the sun goes down. Blur the line between indoor and outdoor living by incorporating these green giants into your outdoor landscape at night.
