A beautiful color palette of red, white, and silver creates a merry, traditional ambiance. Set near the fireplace, your tree will glisten with snowflakes,pine cones, and other shiny baubles. Hang festive stockings along the mantel and use candy-cane-hued paper with complementary solids and patterns to wrap your packages.

LANDSCAPERS: 10 OUTDOOR LIGHTING IDEAS TO MAKE GARDENS GLOW

The Summer months are upon us and your clients will be spending a lot of time outdoors in their backyards and gardens. They are looking for advice on how to make their outdoor living spaces sparkle and evoke a warm, inviting feel that beckons their friends and family to join them outside. We have put together 10 commercial outdoor lighting ideas to take to your clients this summer – some they will even be able to enjoy year-round.

IDEA #1 – DAZZLE WITH WARM WHITE NET LIGHTS

Have a dark space in the corner of your client’s garden or a large open space on their fence? Brighten it up with warm white net lights. You can also wrap bushes, columns and trees with net lights in traditional incandescent or energy saving LEDs and experience long lasting, weather resistant illumination you can depend on. Net lights are an elegant option for brightening outdoor events, summer parties and holiday soiree’s with ease!

IDEA #2 – HAVE FUN WITH STRING LIGHTS

If your client doesn’t have an existing pole or attachment from the deck or patio to hang string lights, get creative and put your DIY skills to work. Take large planters and cement poles or pipe to the bottom of planters anchored at each corner of their patio and sting lights between them. Carry the look over the rest of the yard and string them through the trees for a truly magical enviroment.

IDEA #3 – JOURNEY TO THE FRENCH COUNTRYSIDE

Drape big beautiful bistro lights throughout the backyard and patio. Want to really impress your client? When you are ready for the big reveal, pick up a small 3-piece bistro table set and have a bottle of wine and cheese and crackers sitting out there for them to sit and enjoy!

IDEA #4 – GIVE THE PERGOLA SOME PERSONALITY  

This is where you can really use your imagination! Check out this amazing DIY pergola and fire pit setup. Created by Lauren Ashworth of Little White House Blog, and featured on Remodelaholic, this structure is the grown-up backyard play-set of their dreams. It seriously has it all: a fire pit, a movie screen, Adirondack chairs, six (!) porch swings, a built-in bar, and a pergola. Outdoor string lights are the finishing touch on this amazing setup.

IDEA #5 – FROM THE GROUND UP

If your client has English ivy or some other dense, sturdy groundcover in their landscape, light it up with string lights or these 5mm warm white lights. It’s a beautiful effect, as the lights work their way down into the plants and as you walk along, new lights pop up and others get obscured by the surrounding leaves. Connect them to a timer and set from dusk to dawn.

IDEA #6 – MAKE THE TREES DANCE

Create a magical space. There is nothing more breathtaking than watching the leaves and warm white string lights dance together in the night breeze.

IDEA #7 – DRAPE THEM OVER A READING SPACE OR HAMMOCK

Is there anything more soothing than a hammock gently swinging under commercial outdoor lighting string lights? This easy-to-pull-off setup is guaranteed to be your client’s favorite spot to relax.

IDEA #8 – HANG PATIO LIGHTS ABOVE A SLEEPING PORCH

Does your client have an enclosed area they aren’t quite sure what to do with? Turn their screened in porch into an enchanting oasis. Let them drape from the ceiling or a railing or hang them from a wall.

IDEA #9 – YOU HEARD IT THROUGH THE GRAPEVINE

Use grapevine balls, containers or planters as unique places to bring clusters of light together to make a statement. Grapevine balls, white lights, twine, and a branch turn into an easy-to-make, rustic chandelier you can hang from a porch or patio.

IDEA #10 – GO ALL OUT

If you’re planning to go all out for a special summer party, opt for a more extravagant look by hanging dozens of lights on a patio or porch’s ceiling.
