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. 

Thinking of taking mason jar lighting to the next level? Build your own chandelier that will surely provide unexpected elegance to your outdoor space. Click here for a step-by-step guide. 

Create your own starlit space with string lights! However, instead of simply hanging it overhead, try wrapping them around tree trunks or garden posts for a unique touch. Make it even more flattering by adding another source of light such as a fire pit or a set of lamps. 

If you want to achieve a Bohemian feel, lamps are your best bets. Don't forget to mix and match different designs for an eclectic display.
