There are many different kinds of lights available for your outdoor area, so you may have to choose between fixed lighting or hanging, portable lighting, if you wish to change or move your outdoor areas. A great idea is to leave hanging lights near pathways and terraces. Once you have your lighting chosen, make sure you think about how it will affect your gardens. You need to look at the lighting brightness and colours, and match them with wall features, or garden plants. A great idea is to string fairy lights around a small pond, for added reflection of the light.
During the earlier summer months my backyard was a functional and safe place to socialize and relax without resorting to outdoor lights. Where I live the sun can still be shining until 9.30pm. In fact, during the month of June the skies became dark and the backyard become too dark to be safe right around the time I wanted some BBQ guests to leave so it worked out perfectly.
We started to create our outdoor lighting scheme about 5 years ago. My spouse and I were charmed by the simplicity and beautiful effect or the outdoor lights of a French restaurant in our town. Since that time we have experimented with many different variations of outdoor lighting designs. Our scheme is a work in progress and it gets tweaked each year. Some years we use a lot of string lights while in other years we use spot lights and twinkly lights. We generally tend to stick to white lights although we sometimes use the odd colored spotlight to great success.
