"Like it or not, lighting can make or break any patio or outdoor area. After all, often times, lighting is one of the biggest things you can do in order to give your patio atmosphere and functionality. Who wants to sit outside in the dark?"

"You don't want to leave yourself (or your guests) in the dark. 'I've always loved table lamps on porches,' says interior designer Dana Gibson. 'Even on a small porch, a table lamp adds ambience and makes the space at night even more magical and cozy.' If you don't have a spot to place a lamp, you can also opt for outdoor string lights, which still lend a dreamy effect and create the perfect atmosphere for enjoying that summer nighttime air."

The website Plant Care Today meantime offered some patio lighting ideas for homeowners who want to enjoy eating out in the area.

"For the most pleasing effect possible, the light should originate from overhead and be soft and flattering, free from objectionable glare and bright spots. Here, too, the use of spill light and reflected light can provide most of the necessary background area lighting. More light, however, is needed on the table itself (10 to 20 foot-candles). There are many satisfactory ways of accomplishing this. If the table is to be under or near a roof or overhang, try using overhead floodlights in the same manner as described for general terrace lighting. These should be at least 5 feet or more above the table in housings to eliminate glare."
