This month, my challenge as a Lowes Creative Blogger , I decided to add some ambiance to our yard by adding some Outdoor Lighting. I have ALWAYS loved Yard Lanterns and wanted to add just a few to our landscape to add some interesting detail and charm. I feel like these lanterns are for the outdoors what a lamp is for the indoors.
I would so much rather have a lamp on in a room rather than a glaring overhead light. For some reason the lamp (or lantern light) gives off a cozy, relaxed atmosphere, which is exactly how I want to feel when I am relaxing at night after a busy day whether I am inside or outside.
We picked up a couple of the following packages of Outdoor Landscape Lanterns from our local Lowes. After doing a lot of research on which ones were the brightest and reading several reviews, we decided these were the Lanterns we wanted to go with. I LOVE them. I love how they look in the yard and I love driving up to the house at night when they are light up.

They have now been in our yard for two months and even though they were such an easy install in our yard, they remain one of our favorite “DIY” projects for adding “aesthetically” to our home.
I especially love the light pattern the spread on the sidewalk and driveway! I was surprised at how much light they give off too! And if you are looking for a super easy project to do that literally takes minutes…this one is it.
All you have to do is take them out of the box (which is probably the most difficult part) and then screw the lantern onto the stake and space them evenly around the edges of your yard. We didn’t measure exactly. We just eyeballed it and made a choice where to place them based on the layout of the yard and our flower beds.
