Spruce Up Your Space With Battery Operated Backyard Lights

Now is the perfect time to start updating your outdoor space. If you’re struggling to find those ideal pieces or aren’t sure where to start, we’ve got some great ideas to help you turn your outdoor space into the backyard of your dreams. Read on as we describe some easy ways to add a little more sophistication to your space! 

String Lights

String lights are perfect for adding that subtle light to the ambiance to make it charming. You can hang them over or between plants or above tables. The best part is that string lights are battery-operated, so you don’t need to worry about power sockets being close by. There are many different sizes and shapes to choose from that fit your décor perfectly. Battery Operated Candles have many options available.

Flameless Candle Lanterns

Lanterns add a peaceful vibe to your outdoor décor. You could place them as a centerpiece on your table, around your pool, or by the corners of your door. You can find colors and designs to suit your décor and just use battery-operated candles, so you don’t have to worry about the wind blowing them out. Battery Operated Candles has a fantastic collection for you to choose from.


There are a few ways to go about the furniture for your backyard. You can either opt for rustic wooden furniture or durable plastic furniture that can withstand extreme weather, and it’s perfect if you have a pool in your backyard. Another option is sculptural furniture made out of concrete. It might be heavy but is ideal for all weather conditions and looks visually stunning too.

Fence Upgrade

You could upgrade your basic backyard fence by hanging potted plants between the gaps of the fence, add some flameless lanterns and even run some delicate string lights through the plants. It is bound to be the perfect backdrop for your seating and all your aesthetic pictures.


Even though I would love this as an adult, if you have kids, build a treehouse! It is a fun activity to do with your kids while staying safe, of course. They will want to hide and play there all summer long, giving you a much-needed break from running after them.

Window Ledge

If you have a window facing the backyard, install a window ledge right under it and place some bar stools by it. It will be your own mini-bar, and you can also put snacks there while the kids play in the backyard. You can easily do this yourself with a slab of wood, some brackets, and a drill. Just make sure the ledge is equal to or slightly longer than the window itself.
