Sunset Beauty Pattern
This pattern looks great in all types of outdoor areas. If you like neat tidy and tight layouts this one is for you.
You’ll notice in the drawing this pattern takes advantage of the sockets spacings in the Festoon cable.
You start at one side and go across, then the distance you go along is the spacing of your light sockets. On our Festoon lighting one of the spacings is 900mm.
Then you go back to the other side and repeat.
Hour Glass Pattern
Just like it says, you do an hour glass pattern.
When you’re sitting under the lights and you look up, the crossover looks beautiful. And you’ve got lights going along the ends of your area.
Instead of doing the boring up and back, the Hour Glass pattern looks a thousand times better.
You start in one corner, go along the edge then cross over to the far corner. Then go along your edge a little then cross back to the other corner.
