It’s become quite common nowadays to stay home and settle in for a staycation getaway that doesn’t require any travel. During these uncertain times, many people have been turning to their backyards as a place of comfort and solace. Rather than spending money on an annual vacation this year, perhaps it’s time to consider sprucing up your backyard for a staycation to rival them all. What’s the first thing you should add to your backyard to level up the overall ambiance and magic? Lights! Hanging lights in your backyard is the perfect way to transform the space into something most spectacular.
Hanging Lights In Your Backyard
Nothing creates more magic in a backyard than hanging lights. Whether you’re hanging them from the trees or lining the edge of your roof, lights create a more ethereal feel which will have you loving your backyard again in no time. Purchasing the right string lights for your backyard comes down to a few things. First, always make sure that if you’re hanging these lights outdoors, you buy indoor/outdoor lights specifically. Outdoor lights will be more suitable for inclement weather, so you won’t have to worry when it rains. Second, you will want to make sure you purchase lights that are shatter-resistant. Nothing is worse than having one light shatter in the pack or on a windy day and you’re left with a mess, not to mention an eyesore. Additionally, make sure that you purchase hanging lights that have a long life span. These particular outdoor lights have a life hour count of 15,000 hours, which means you won’t have to concern yourself with replacing the lights often.
Another feature of string lights that you might want to consider adding is a dusk to dawn timer. These timers can be plugged into an outlet and connected to your string lights so that you don’t have to worry about turning the lights on and off every day. Usually set for 12-hour increments, the lights will turn on around 6 p.m. then back off at 6 a.m. Also, don’t worry about breaking the bank with this purchase. Reliable outdoor, water-resistant timers can be purchased for less than $15.
