Despite longer days, gatherings and parties can last longer than the day, and good lighting will ensure the overall atmosphere doesn’t suffer. If you want your guests to stay, take a look at these ten wonderful backyard lighting ideas.
String lights are probably the most cost-effective and easy way of adding light to your backyard. You can hang them on trees or any other tall object that you find suitable. String lights are perfect for calm and peaceful nights, cozy dinners and gatherings.

If you’re going to class up your backyard, then lanterns should be your choice. They will add charm to your backyard, giving it the sophisticated appeal, especially if you have a traditional home design.
Outdoor pendant lights are an emerging trend in 2018. When it comes to shape, choose the one that suits you the best, whether it is sphere or hexagon. These lights will stand out and attract the attention of your guests and curious bypassers. Go for pendant lights if you want glamour and elegance.
Uplighting is still popular because they aim high and make everything seem more grandiose. You can position these lights under trees or plants, or you can install them against the wall.
