Lighting Sets the Mood

You’ve got a great looking lawn. You’ve selected and bought your lawn furniture and BBQ. You’re ready to enjoy your new outdoor living spaces – and whether hosting a party or spending a quiet evening alone with a good book, lighting sets the mood.

For the partier, Christmas lights aren’t just for Christmas anymore. Plain white lights strung in trees or gazebo add a touch of class to your backyard, whereas the multi-colored strands accented by some tiki torches like THESE from Lowes create a more festive atmosphere. Established walkway and path lights like THESE three tiered solar lights from Home Depot not only add a nice lighting touch, but also the element of safety for your guests.

For a more subdued night home alone or with a loved one, use candles and candle lanterns like these from Pier1 to illuminate your outdoor living area. The softer lights will also give you a chance to kick back on your lush EasyTurf lawn and do a little star gazing – without worrying about bugs or getting dirty.

Your backyard is a living extension of your home and should be enjoyed well after the sun’s gone down. Get a lighting plan, maybe a classic Hemmingway novel, and make the most of it.
