Summer is here and that means it's time to get in shape. Wait - put away those old workout videos, today we're talking about patio string lights.
From straight lines to scallops, string lights can take on many different shapes and with a little planning, will work in the area you are looking to illuminate.
Pro Tip: Use patio light strings with larger bulb sizes and wider socket spacing for bigger areas. If you are working in a small space, choose smaller bulb sizes, such as G30 globe lights, with tighter socket spacing between each bulb.
Working With Round Shapes
If your landscape includes a gazebo or round canopy, wrap or hang patio lights around the perimeter or along the supports. This creates a circle of light that is truly magical and a stunning backyard focal point!
Pro Tip: When wrapping or hanging lights around a circular structure, try to keep lights hanging tightly against the surface. Hanging the lights snug against the outside rim will create the desired magic circle lighting effect!
