As Summer comes to a close and Fall opens up, the sun sets at a faster rate than before. This means that your outdoor time is limited, but it isn’t as limited as you think if you know how to set up outdoor lighting so that it illuminates your entire yard and no one is left in the dark. To help you, I am going to list a few ideas that you can try out that will help keep your yard bright even when the sky is not.

The first and most common outdoor lighting would be landscape lighting. This is a type of lighting that you stick into your yard and it uses batteries or solar power to brighten it up.

These lights are very efficient and will keep your entire yard lit up even if you don’t think they are capable of the job, these are the second most popular lights that people purchase for outdoor use.

Lanterns are also very popular. These light up more without requiring a dozen lights be placed throughout your yard. For a small area you will only need 1 or 2 lanterns. For bigger areas all that you have to do is find a pattern that will keep things lit up and you won’t have any darkness even if you only have 5 or 6 lanterns.

If you have a lot of outdoor plants, go for an led planter. This way your plants have a home and you have light once the sun goes down. Even if you don’t have plants, you can use the planters upside down as little tables for drinks or a game with friends. This is a method that not a lot of people are using, but it’s pretty efficient if you think about other ways that the planter could be used.

Some people even use hidden led string lights that you put next to any wall and surface and it will light up that generally area. This method is less bright and is used more for closed in areas, but it’s aesthetically pleasing.

These are just some of the things that you can do to keep things bright, there are many more but you won’t find much better than these suggestions right here. Pick out one of these methods and you won’t be disappointed. It is also important to note that all of these are within reasonable prices so you won’t be breaking the bank either.
