With spring on the way, it’s nearly time to get back into the swing of things when it comes to yard work. Many people may be considering making a change to their backyard, adding a few plants or giving it some light. Below are seven easy ideas to spice up the lighting designs in your yard.
- Mason Jar Lighting
Unsure of what to do with this old mason jars lying around? Why not turn them into interesting outdoor lighting? By hanging them in your backyard and putting in a candle, wax or electric, you have an easy, cozy new way to shed some light onto your lawn.
- Tin Can Lamps
Recycle those old, used tin cans by simply poking a few holes into the sides in a neat design and sticking an LED light inside. Not only are you keeping the cans out of landfills, but LED lights only use 15% of the energy that a typical halogen light gives off. This saves you money and reduces your carbon footprint, all at the same time.
- Glow Stick Jars
A fun little DIY project that’s cheap and easy, simply buy a bunch of glow sticks, break them open and dump them into a couple jaws. Seal the jars, shake the fluid around a bit and you’ve got yourself a cool, temporary landscape lighting design. And when the fluid runs out of juice, you can simply buy some more cheap glowsticks and do the process over again.
- Tree branches wrapped in fairy lights
Another inexpensive residential lighting design is the use of fairy lights. You can do all kinds of different designs with these strings of lights, but one that is sure to dazzle all your guests is taking those fairy lights and wrapping them around the tree branches in your backyard. You won’t take up additional space with bulky, heavy lights and it can give your yard a real quiet sense of peace and quiet.
You want your backyard to be a place for quiet date nights or huge get-togethers. Investing in the right lighting can really make your lawn pop in all the right ways. We hope you found these ideas to be helpful.
