LED strip lights are always the best available option for decorating the outdoors of your home, particularly when you are looking for a cozy night ambiance. You can definitely enliven your front yard with bright LED strip lighting. The most popular one is the 12V LED strip lights.


Consider the color you want for each area. Many LED light styles offer color changing features, but you may require separate strings for each color you want to see at the same time. Factor this need into your string length calculations to ensure you get the right number of strings.
Look for the wattage limitations on the packaging, as well as any limitations on how many lights you can string together safely. Because LED lights require very low wattage, you are not likely to be in danger of overloading your household circuits, but the thickness of the wire within each string or fixture may have limitations.

Check the packaging on each light string or lighted ornament you choose to ensure it says "For outdoor use."
Make sure the lights you purchase are rated for 120-volt power. LEDs often operate on 12-volt power, but usually come with a 120 to 12-volt converter to allow you to plug them into standard sockets. Some low-voltage systems exist, however, so it is best to check the packaging to be sure.

Measure the distance from your light strings to the nearest outdoor outlets and purchase outdoor-rated extension cords while you're shopping for Christmas lights. Also purchase your lighting hooks or clips and a sturdy ladder, if you do not already have them.

Wish this guides will give you a lively garden and a cheerful mood.
