I bought some cool patio lights and now that they are here, I realize I don’t know what to do with them in Park Ridge! Is there someone that can help set them up to look cool in my backyard? Thanks for any recommendations!

What’s on the right side of the photo. Is that a screen? You can string them from there. Are they 100% outdoor lights?

We got costco led string lights. No guide wire needed but you need to figure out a pattern you want or possibly buy another length to get a zig zag pattern going. Last step is getting power to it. I installed a GFCI under the ridge of my addition controlled by a switch outside and put weather proof covers for the switch and outlet. Been up for almost 3 years and no problems! You might get an LED that looks out in the cold weather but actually they just dont operate as well in the extreme cold.

My go to guy for the last 20+ years is Carlos Bobadilla. He’s an independent contractor - can do most anything. Great with problem solving, design, patience with clients, honest businessman. Tell him you got his name from me. 847-219-8543. Have fun with it!

They are super easy to hang and don't need support. I just bought small cup hooks and screwed one in near each light. As you can see they look good as a border light. With the left over ( I had about 4 lights worth) I just unscrewed the bulbs. The light nearest the sliding glass door I put in a yellow bug light so the bugs wouldn't congregate.
