As the weather begins to heat up, your yard basically turns into your second home. You invite guests over, your kids invite their friends over, you make memories during the spring and summer in your yard. That’s why you want to make sure that your yard stands out. LED lights are a great way to make your yard pop. Here are a few LED light ideas that are sure to gain someone’s attention.
String lights are a great source of light for your backyard. Because they’re above your yard, it’s one of the best options for actual lighting purposes. The string design also allows you to be creative with how you design it.
String lights provide a cozy feel and require minimal effort of your end to hang up. String up your lights, plug them in and then you’re ready. This is a good choice if you’re shooting for a more relaxing aesthetic.
Lanterns are becoming an increasingly more popular option for LED lighting in homeowners yards. This is because lanterns are a good light source and are easy to move around. They come in a wide variety of styles so they’re perfect for any backyard.
Depending on how much light you want, you can go with either candle or LED lanterns. If you’re looking for more light, LED will be the choice for you. Lanterns are a great way to set the mood in your backyard.
Strips of Hidden LED Lights
Hidden LED lights provide a wide array of benefits on top of looking like something from the future! Place the LED strips along the base of outdoor stairs, walkways or furniture. It creates more space in your lawn and rids any risks that come with having cords hanging around.
This helps create a super modern look in your backyard. You can enjoy your yard no matter the time of the day. This may be the best option if you have stairs in your lawn as not only does it look cool, but it also helps light up the steps when it’s dark outside.
Uplighting is a great choice if you want to light up certain parts of your backyard. You can place uplighting strategically to shine a light on trees, shrubs or even artwork. It will also create a cozy atmosphere with a modern look.
Simply place lights under areas that you want to showcase. These lights are perfect for yards with trees and shrubbery. Much like hidden LED lights, uplighting is mainly out of sight without cords running throughout the yard.
Orbs and Spheres
LED orbs and spheres are another great way to give your lawn a modern yet ethereal feel. Orbs are more commonly hung up individually throughout backyards. However, some homeowners choose to cluster them together which builds a mystical vibe.
This is definitely more of an artistic statement than other LED lighting options. If done correctly, it can wow visitors. More importantly, it’s a great option if you’re looking to light up a large yard.
Pendant lights provide a more traditional feel. Typically, pendant lights are recommended for those who have a dedicated dining space or a covered patio area in their backyard. These lights can be used to light up the table and set a comfortable tone for dinner and some drinks.
Depending on the type of light you get, pendant lights may only light up a specific part of your yard. They are commonly paired with other types of LED lights that cover the remainder of the yard.
