Adding solar string lights to the yard will create ambiance and improve visibility. Unless you have strategically placed trees and structures though, there may not be a good space to hang solar lights in the yard. My friend Andrea from @fleur_at_home had a great idea to hang them.
Andrea sent me a link for these Yardguard galvanized metal poles that her and her husband used in their fire pit area. They are relatively inexpensive but need to be cemented into the ground for stability.
Overall this project is pretty inexpensive to do and only took a few hours (minus the drying time for the concrete). Here’s how we did it:
Supply List for Adding Solar String Lights
- solar string lights
- galvanized metal poles
- cement kit
- aluminum rail end
- mixing stick for cement (we used whatever we had laying around)
- post hole digger (if you have one)
