Are you looking to make your house pop, but can’t figure out what else it needs? Manicured lawn, garden, fresh paint, lawn gnomes, and a bird bath that gets visitors. Why is it that all that hard work is only satisfying at night? Well, chances are your traditional outdoor lights string isn’t up to snuff or, possibly, snuffing out your creative work by covering it all in a wash of light. Managing outdoor lights string is all about using the space you have available to you, whether you have a small yard or big yard.
You have to look at your backyard like it’s your playground, but also visualize it like another room that has a bit more freedom to work around in. Light plays differently without walls, that’s why you must strategically place your lights to bounce off boundaries, whether that is a tree, the house siding, or the ground itself.
New Horizons thanks to LED
LEDs have revolutionized the business of outdoor lighting. You not only get more bang for your buck, with LEDs lasting for up to 20 years and using about a tenth less energy than traditional light bulbs like halogen, but you also get more choices in what you need for your home.
Some of the best places to string outdoor lights is in and around plants and gardens. You can get a well-lit area with LEDs, but without an unnecessary glare that will blind you on your way up your steps. LED outdoor lights string can also accent your beautiful trimmings of your home or outdoor fixtures. Grab a couple bunches of LED faerie lights and turn your property into a place of phantom enchantment and special charm.
Taking it to the next level
With the flexibility of LED outdoor lights string, you can take your landscape presentation levels to an urban work of art. Get some mini-LED flood lights and reflect them off a birdbath or fountain, stick them at the bottom of your pool, or around a large tree using lantern housings to give an exotic flare.
You can disguise outdoor lights string very easily with the use of some creative rock placements or directly embedded into your stepping stones along your walkway. You have the ability to place these low-powered LEDs virtually anywhere you want without fear of it becoming an annoyance or liability, which leaves you with your yard as your canvas.
