I continue to have requests from clients for lighting patios, tables, bar areas etc. when there are no arbors or mature trees or anything else to attach down lights to. I usually tell them to use hurricane candles, tiki torches etc. On the rare occasion, at the customer's request, I have mounted a down light under the eve of the house and angled it onto the patio, but I don't care much for the resulting glare. I have considered stringing white Christmas type lights 10 or 12 feet high over the patio in a tic-tac-toe pattern. I saw this in a couple of movies. It increases the ambient light and adds "sparkle" to the scene. However, I haven't tried this yet. Suggestions welcomed.
