Depending on your patio light you can hang it in a number of places. Outdoor lanterns are hung from the ceiling requiring you to preassemble the light, inspect the outlet box for weight capacity and make sure there is proper mounting and wiring for the installation. Some lights are solar, using rechargeable batteries and the sun for power. All you have to do is stake the light into the ground or mount it to the wall, and wait for light. Hanging string lights is fairly easy but requires a lot of planning and mapping out. You have to make sure the lights are hung on secure points and have access to a proper power source.
