Lighting makes outdoor spaces feel inviting, above left. To install lighting supports, sink concrete forms at each end or corner (deep enough to go below the frost line). Center a same-height piece of 1-inch-diameter PVC pipe inside and fill form around pipe with concrete. Cut ¾-inch conduit to the height you want the lights, plus the height of the PVC pipe. Screw a ¾-inch cap onto the conduit end, and drill a hole 1 inch below. Feed a screw eye through the hole and secure with a nut. Prime and paint the pole, then feed it into the PVC. Attach lights to the screw eye using zip tie, above middle.
REMOVE THE STRING-LIGHT POLES WHEN NOT IN USE, AND MOW RIGHT OVER THE CONCRETE BASES, IF NEEDED.
