There’s no better time to spend an evening outside in your own yard than during the warm summer weather. That’s why we’ve put together a list of our favourite ways to help illuminate your backyard living space to create the perfect paradise right in your own backyard.

Tube Lighting

A unique twist on your regular stake light pathways is to try tube lighting. Line your garden or pathways with some LED tube lighting to create a clearly lit path that not only helps you watch where you step but also “steps-up” the class of your backyard with its unique style. Connect these to a timer and never worry about finding your way in the dark again.

Tiki Torches

Tiki torches provide a lot more use than decorating for a backyard luau. They come in all sorts of styles and sizes to go with your decor and are portable, too! With tiki torches you have the freedom to move them whenever you want, allowing you to switch up your outdoor living space frequently. The best part? You get the added benefit of some additional heat for when the temperature cools down and can even customize the torches to include mosquito repellent fumes to ward off any pesky intruders!

Fire Pit

Grab some lawn furniture, a bag of marshmallows and your favourite people and cozy up to a campfire this summer. You can go with the classic wood burning fire pit or the more modern propane approach. Adding one to your patio or backyard will keep your backyard lit and your bodies warm all summer long.

Edison Bulb Lights

You can create an enchanting atmosphere with string lights, or you can take it a step further with some vintage-inspired Edison bulb string lights. These lights can be draped from tree to tree or even lined around the edges of your roof. Perfect for outdoor events, parties, and barbeques this vintage lighting style will create the perfect social ambience.

Floating Lights

Who says you need the moon for some moonlighting? With the help of some floating LED pool lights, you can create your own moonlight even when the moon is hiding behind the clouds. If you are lucky enough to have a pool or a pond in your backyard these floating lights will glide across the surface creating a gorgeous illumination second to only one.
