When you want to add some additional light outdoors, you can follow some simple outdoor decor tips. First, try to use either solar-powered or battery-powered lights so that you don’t need to run cords outside. Many of the string lights and decorative lights that are on the market today have a solar or battery option, and it’s wise to opt for those. There are also many styles of decorative lights. You can find faux rocks that have solar-powered LED lights inside of them. There are pavers that light up around the edges. You can even get wired LED lights that wrap around branches or poles in your yard to add soft lighting to the dark spaces in your yard.
Some other popular additions to lighting for your yard are the solar-powered garden accessories that look like flowers or plants but have LED lights in them, so you can add soft lighting to your flowerbeds or vegetable garden. They also have recently come out with the Edison style light bulbs that are solar-powered, and they clip onto tree branches or porches and light up the area essentially all night long off of the solar charge. They also have paper lights, like Asian styled paper balls that are battery or solar-powered, and hang on hooks from porches and decks.
The string light still seems to be the most popular option for lighting up outdoor areas. The lights come in a rope fashion and are available in many colors. A lot of people wrap them around trees or bushes, and they also look great along the edges of flowerbeds. They have been popular in flowerbeds because of the ease of using them; simply stake them along the edge of the flowerbed with room to plug them in, and they look great and light your yard softly all night long.
