Has Spring arrived yet in your neck of the woods or are you experiencing what we seeing, winter extension? I think the majority of us only know it’s Spring because the days are staying lighter for longer. We’ve been having to switch our outdoor lighting later than during the wintry cold nights which has been nice. This year more than any other year has made me realise just how much I love Spring and look forward to it. There is a saying ‘A frog never realises the importance of the river until it has dried up’, can you relate? It took me this long to realise how much I love Spring now that it’s playing the hide and seek game.

There is nothing worse than having to end a good night early because you do not have the proper outdoor lighting for your backyard.

4 Outdoor Lighting Ideas for Spring

With the advancement in technology, you just have to google outdoor lighting and you will be flooded with options. Personally I have four types that I absolutely love and hope to have in my own backyard in my future home. These days you don’t have just buy lighting for the sake of it, instead add some style to your decor. You want the outdoor area to be one where you can relax at and watch the night sky with a loved one. Here are my 4 favourite lighting options you can check out for your garden and backyard. Check out the *latest lighting offers available on Groupon for an absolute bargain.

Pendant Lighting

I love pendant necklaces so it’s easy to see why I fell in love with pendant hanging lighting fixtures. I have seen many designs in Dunelm that have had me stack envious for those with gardens. They had an element of sophistication to the outdoor area and just look beautiful.

Lantern Lighting

Who doesn’t like lanterns? I have loved lantern lighting for as long as I can remember and even have a small lighting outside my house just because. Rustic lanterns are my absolute favourite for the garden area or even your front porch for a rustic look.

String Lighting

For some reason these remind me of Christmas time, I love it when my neighbors keep them way past Christmas. These give the perfect lighting especially for larger gardens or even decorating the tree in your backyard. You can never go wrong with string lights when decorating your garden or even front yard.

Orbs Lighting

I first saw Orbs lighting at a friend’s place and I felt in love with them, even ended up purchasing one. Because there is battery operated I was able to pick one for my home, they are energy-saving and adds character to our home. During the summer these would be perfect to take outside or even at the begin and watch the waves. They look great on the patio but can be added to other areas in your outdoor seating area.

Spring has always being consider a warm up to Summer in readiness for the BBQ season. But it holds its own right as a time of cleansing, rebirth and starting again. It’s hard at the moment the think we are in Spring time when it’s still flaming cold. But alas we can not control the weather but with the things you can control, go for it.

Happy Spring!!

    I really like strings of fairy lights for the garden – I have quite a few sets that I’ve purchased from Home Bargains hehe, they’ve got little bumble bees and little butterflies on. They look fab when entwined around the trellis x
