We've said it countless times before—having the right lighting is one of the easiest and most budget-friendly way to spruce up an outdoor space. You can use it to create a distinct mood, highlight certain design elements and it's a treat for the eyes overall. If you're currently dressing up your own backyard, we've listed down some landscape lighting ideas that you can try in your lanai:
To keep your garden lively, even at night, consider investing in proper landscape lighting. Adding concealed, ambient light encourages a feeling of warmth and brings depth to an otherwise flat backyard.
If you aren't into artificial lighting, you can utilize candles placed in mason jars instead. They provide the same warm-toned glow with its amber-colored flames without having to pay for extra electricity costs.
RL Tip: Don't forget to put out the candles after use to keep your DIY lighting from being a fire hazard.
