Making your Yard Bewitching with String Lights

Shining string lights can always create an inescapable charm even in the most ordinary spaces. They make the heart skip a beat by adding wonders to any festive ambience, especially that of your garden landscape!
Despite the pressure from the neighborhood, you alone can dictate the visual direction of your holiday display. You have all the creative freedom to decorate your garden whatever way you like. Here are a few tips on how to hang string lights for any festivity.

Bulbs
Before you begin, make sure there is a plan in place. Analyze the locations where you can put the lights on. They will most likely be along the gutters or eaves and even the windows. Utilize this plan to evaluate the number and length of strands you will require.
While there are no standard lengths in strands, there are bulb size standards. Look for C9 or C7 size bulbs to string together 6 to 8 inches apart. When there is a longer distance between bulbs, it allows more light to cover a wider area, creating more warmth.
