How do you outline a driveway with Christmas lights?
Leave at least a foot between the edge of the driveway and staked lights when lining your driveway. If a driver backs out too close to the edge, he shouldn’t take out a row of lights. Create a flow of light that moves the eye from one area to the next. Avoid “hot spots” of lights bunched in one area.

Can you put Christmas lights on grass?
Installing the lights properly in the grass prevents them from shifting out of place, whether you are using them for a single event or for an entire season. Ground stakes elevate the lights to the desired height so they aren’t hidden in the grass and are less susceptible to moisture. Light bulbs don’t need a ground.
