See how you can incorporate anything from string lights, solar lights, mason jars and tin cans to create beautiful backyard patio lighting and porch lighting. Lighting the garden and patio area allows you to enjoy the outdoors in so many more ways. Hanging out in the backyard in the evenings is surely one of summer’s greatest pleasures. It’s even more fabulous when your garden is dotted with light! Lighting usually can cost a lot, but the “do it yourself” solution is always preferable.
