You know, it really does not take a lot of LED outdoor Christmas lights to make the outside of a home look all Christmas-y.
It also does not take a lot of time and effort to arrange LED outdoor Christmas lights either.
Simple is good; using outdoor LED Christmas lights can be simple as well.
And, as we all know by now, any type of LED lighting uses much, much less electricity than old fashioned incandescent light bulbs.
Placing LED Outdoor Christmas Lights
Take for example my home.
We have shown you the outside of the house many times. The garage is turned 90 degrees so the long garage wall faces the street. Along the street facing garage wall we planted a few years ago Pyramidal Yews as well as Hedge Yews.
A couple of years ago I received two reels of these Noma outdoor LED Christmas light strings with 200 LED lights each.
Since time is a commodity in very short supply for me these days, my approach is to simply place loosely the yews. For the Pyramidal or cone shaped Yews I simply place the LED outdoor Christmas light string around them just like an indoor Christmas tree.
I also had a little left over at the end of one of the LED outdoor Christmas light string to place a little on the small annual tree at the front of the garden’s left side.
For the short Hedge Yews, I simply run the string of LED outdoor Christmas lights in three rows parallel to the garage wall.
When I finish, the outdoor string of LED Christmas lights does not look like much, right?
Two Strings of Outdoor LED Christmas Lights At Night
Now, since we have limited ads on our site we don’t have a lot of funds to buy expensive specialty cameras. So the following pictures were taken with our inexpensive digital camera with the optional flash turned off feature.
Let’s start here at the view from our street. This picture was taken during the day once I had placed both of the 200 LED outdoor Christmas light strings on the shrubbery against the street facing garage wall. From the edge of the street you can hardly see any of the lights, right?
Now for comparison purposes, here is a picture taken at night from the same point. And, yes, the camera does not do the lights justice.
For a simple and easy placement of two LED outdoor Christmas light strings, that is a lot of cheery lights, don’t you think? Just toggle back and forth to see the difference.
Here is a closeup of the LED Christmas lights on that small annual tree in the front of the garden.
Next is a picture of the LED lights on the three Pyramidal Yews on the east side of the garden.
And, lastly, here is a picture at night taken from the same angle as the closeup picture of the full front garden shown as the last picture in the first section of this article.
How long did it take me to place these two strings of 200 LED outdoor Christmas lights? Less than an hour.
So, go out now while there are still sales on outdoor LED Christmas lights and set them out outside your home before the really cold weather approaches!
