Decorating with Net Lights

June 11, 2008

So you’ve decided which Santa you are going to mount on the roof and how you are going to outline your roofline in red and white C7 light strings – what next? Well, you might consider turning your attention to your outdoor landscaping.

Now we have all seen poorly lit bushes and shrubs – they stick out like a sore thumb! But decorating your outdoor greenery can be easy! Just make sure to keep a few things in mind. For the best looking shrubs on the block, make sure to arrange the lights randomly. The little bit of extra time this might take will definitely be worth it!

A good thing to remember is to tackle this project at dusk with the lights plugged in. You will have a much better idea of how the shrubs will look as well as an opportunity to correct any issues with the lights themselves such as burnt out bulbs, etc.

Now we all know that the holidays are a busy time for all! If you think that you don’t have enough time to tackle decorating your outdoor shrubs and hedges, consider using net lights!

Just as the name implies, these lights are already arranged in a net-like fashion that require you to simply blanket your shrubs with these lights for a uniform lighting effect. No matter how big or small the job, net lights are easy to install and come in a variety of colors. Available online and in some specialty stores, they come in a wider variety of colors -blue, clear, green, red, and multi colors and more.

Most net light sets can be connected using stackable plugs allowing you to connect up to 3 net sets.

But wait! Net lights aren’t just for outdoor shrubs! Some net lights are specially made to be a quick and easy solution to lighting your indoor Christmas tree. Net lights also work well accenting stair railings or fences.

Net lights are also a quick and easy lighting solution for your porch or patio ceilings – they create an instantly festive feeling. Perfect for Holiday parties or summer soirees.

    1. Sure, they can be used on the ground as long as they are not in water, mud, or in an area where they might be stepped on.

      Keep in mind that incandescent lights do heat up under operation if you go that route so consider any vegetation (like dry grass) you might be putting the net lights on and proceed with appropriate caution.
