  • The most popular type of outdoor lights are string lights. String lights are lights that are attached to each other by an electrical wire and are usually six to twelve feet long, depending on the style you buy. The lights are spaced every eight to twelve inches along the wire and at one end there is a plug for you to plug it into an outdoor outlet. They are so popular due to the variety and sizes that are available. From outdoor globe string lights, lantern string lights, to even miniature beer mug lights you’ll be sure to find a type that suits you and your home.
  • Flood/spot lights are readily available and easy to use. Basically, you point the light at whatever you want to highlight, plug it in, and you’re done. They are available in many sizes and colors so you can experiment with color effects in your yard. (To change colors you just open up the lights casing with a screwdriver and swap out a different colored light bulb.)
  • Using solar patio lights has become very popular recently since solar manufacturers has increased the efficiency of solar lights to the point where they last much longer than previously and are affordable. One of the main benefits of using solar lights is that you don’t need to plan ahead for where your going to plug them in to supply them power at night.
