How do I hang lights in a home garden?



Light Selection and Safety

Select the type of light to display in the home garden. Select between light lanterns, solar lights or battery-operated outdoor lights. If hanging strands or loose wires are an issue (especially for houses with small children), choose solar or battery-operated lights.



Setup Using Stakes

Position lights by lining up shepherd-type stakes along the walkway (firmly placed and pressed into the soil), in a uniform line and at an equal height. Use the stakes to hang light lanterns and give the garden a glow.

Setup Using Hooks

Mount hooks on stable structures across the garden to hang lights on. Place hooks on walls or fences. Position and mount the hooks high enough to cast the light well. Install the hooks using a drill and a wrench, and secure the drilled hole with a lag bolt and washers for stability.
