Simple Outdoor Lighting Ideas to Transform Your Space This Memorial Day

Summer is the season for grilling and outdoor gatherings! As Memorial Day fast approaches, it’s time to think of ways to spruce up your patio and backyard. To help you get your backyard ready and at its finest, we’ve rounded up some outdoor lighting favorites to help transform your space:

Hidden LED Strips

Placing LED strips along the base of your stairs or under furniture is a simple way to brighten up your backyard or patio. It creates a modern look and transforms the outdoor area into a place that can be enjoyed at all hours of the day and night.


Make a statement in your backyard by positioning lights under trees and plants, or even against a wall. Uplighting brightens the space while also making it look more dramatic and cozy.

Pots & Planters

Chances are, you already have planters in your yard. Why not make them a focal point and a light source for those warm summer nights? Illuminated planters come in a large range of sizes, so whether you’re planting a few flowers or a massive hedge, an illuminated planter is up for the job.

Pendant Lights

If you have a dedicated dining area in your backyard, pendant lights can be used to shed some light on mealtime conversation and let the outdoor festivities carry on late into the night.
