With the COVID-19 pandemic still in full force, people are going to be spending a lot of time outdoors for a long stretch of time. With the North Carolina summer coming up, there is no reason why we shouldn’t take the time to create an outdoor space that we can enjoy with our safe, vaccinated circle of people.
One way that you can create this beautiful oasis is to incorporate outdoor lighting installation in your backyard. Outdoor lighting is one way that you can really make your uniform backyard look like a unique space. By doing this, you will encourage your friends and family to use the space as a safe, fun environment to create new memories while we still struggle with the pandemic.
Here are some ways that your lighting options can look incredible and inviting:
Option One: String Lights
Covering your yard from start to finish with a simple string of lights can create a classic and sought-after clean look. also creates the illusion that there is a more unique space that is catered to what people want. It is almost like you are headed back out into the world again to gather at a cute little outdoor bar – but it’s right in your backyard! Where the drinks are cheaper, the fire burns as long as you want, and it is a private space for either a night with family and friends or even a date. Who says we need restaurants and bars? We have string lights instead.
Option Two: Follow The Well-Lit Road
While it may not be yellow or made out of brick, installing a lit path can make your home seem more inviting to those who show up a bit late to the party when the sun has already set. There are a few different options when it comes to choosing which lighting you’d like for your pathway.
For backyard pathways or pavers that lead around your home, a stunning option can be solar lights. These lights come in multiple colors that all give off a sleek look that can upscale any backyard. In addition to making your outdoor space more attractive, these solar lights are solely powered by the sun – which means they won’t even run up your electricity bill. Simply install them in the daylight and wait for the sun to work its magic. At night, you will be able to enjoy a well-lit path with no electricity needed.
Option Three: Light Up Your Garden
Are you a person who takes great pride in their plants and other greenery? Maybe you have a large tree that you would like to showcase or a cluster of trees with great branches to incorporate into your lighting. Maybe there are just some trees that you would like to spruce up and try to make more appealing to the eye. This is where lighting up your garden can really be a great choice.
If you are choosing a large tree to showcase, imagine using it as a unique lamp. Wrapping a string of lights around each individual branch can create an individualized look that will make your yard lighting one-of-a-kind. After all, you can’t really replicate a tree.
