Tips for outdoor lighting
Every neighborhood has the one yard with the extra impressive light display. It could be the accompanying Christmas tune, number of automatic reindeer or the beauty of a well-lit house - all of these factors contribute to a successful Christmas display. The Holiday season seems to approach faster every year, and with these simple tips, you can make your yard something to brag about next season.
A great way people decorate their homes is by attaching their lights to roofing shingles or gutters. This can seem like a complex task because strands can sometimes come with as many as 200 bulbs. Lighting clips help make installation easier and they won't damage your house. When choosing a clip be sure to remember the size of the bulbs as an essential factor in your decision.
The Do It Yourself Network offers many helpful hints for Christmas decorating. Create a plan for your light display before you begin to install the lights around your yard. Measure the area that you would like to decorate. If you need help, EnvironmentalLights.com has tips on their website like "How many feet of string does my tree require." Also, when ordering your lights read the product details on how many strings can be linked in a row - some are as many as 90 strings like with Environmental Lights’ Premium Retail C7 bulb light strings.
