What a glorious night the moon shines in our garden or in our outdoor living space. These moments are magical and memorable and often provide enough light for us to see. But what if you want to have a guest for an outdoor dinner and the moon does not rise? It is a good place to think of ways to brighten up your garden, orchards or deck by encouraging a growing number of people to enjoy the outdoors, and to encourage people outside the VV-19.
This work can be expensive or you can do it on a shoe budget. There are many creative ways to make your yard, leisure and space ideal.
We had a beautiful porch, but it was always dark at night. Over the years, I have tried many things to make the environment more profitable. First, I hung stars on a vine and a Christmas tree. They looked festive, but they did not give much light. I use a lot of short ballots and long candles, but here, too, this is not enough. As people get older, I need more light to see and I know I need more light if I have a guest to eat outside comfortably.
I visited my friend’s house last winter and was thrilled to see what they did to lighten the deck. They took the PVC pipe as a support and mounted the cap on the poles and hooks and mounted the LED string lights from the LED to the pole. They painted the pillars dark brown and at night they never appeared. This gave them a soft glow and expanded their living space to the outside and did this with little effort or expense.
I decided to try this and had to use metal rods because the lights were high in the air, but both worked well. I inserted a 2-inch PVC pipe into the ground 1 1/2 feet deep and put the metal pole in the hole in the ground. We hooked it up and hung the lights from poles to poles.
Cable lights have become a popular way to light outdoors. You can take these ornamental strings or light cords with a little effort and clean them around the porch, trees, shrubs, or pergola. They can be found in a variety of sizes and even shapes.
You can also take a string of Christmas lights and arrange them on the bushes to give it a little softer glow. In one area and on the other, I have some oklef hydrangeas hanging on my porch, and I have a stone edge around the tree on the porch so that no one can walk on it.
Another way to get light outdoors is to have solar panels or rechargeable table lamps. A few years ago, I was given 2 light bulbs that were brighter than most candles. I leave them outside and in the evening, the light bulbs come and give us the light we need to eat outside. When I told my son how much I loved these lights and how one broke, he found another light to try. These are refreshing table lamps that give us the light we need to eat comfortably outside. These have cords that can be attached to the wall before charging and can charge the lamp for up to 20 hours.
There are many technology options to improve outdoor lightning. First, think about what you want to accomplish and how much you want to spend. Do you want light to eat with another couple or want to have a large group to drink? You need to know how much light you need.
Solar lighting is an option if you want to light your yard without installing electricity outside. During the day, the solar panels take in enough sunlight to provide the lights at night. Solar garden lights are an innovative and cost-effective way to add light to your outdoor living space.
Now that the days are getting shorter and the nights are getting colder, don’t let this keep you from eating out with your friends. We often eat outdoors in the spring, summer and fall, and you can expand your living space with a little creativity. In such cases, outdoor spaces can serve as an extension of the living room or dining room and provide a great atmosphere enhanced by effective lighting. Staying well is important, and being safe with friends is important.
