Garden Lighting Ideas

Best Outdoor Lighting

Whether it’s down to the effects of climate change, or maybe we are just embracing outdoor living more, either way, more and more of us are spending more of our time socialising and living in our gardens. As we do so, we have a growing need for garden lighting that lets us enjoy our gardens long after the sun has gone down.

There are many different types of outdoor lights that are suitable for patios, BBQ areas, paths, borders, fence posts, trees, decking areas, ponds and more.

The first decision you need to make is what you want your lighting to do for you? Motion sensor security lights are great to help protect your premises, or to temporarily light the way up a path or drive, but isn’t usually good ambient lighting for a garden party!

There are a growing variety of wirefree solar lights for almost every application, allowing for fast and low cost installation, without the need for hard wiring the units into your mains electricity.

Ambient lighting can easily through enough indirect light to allow for comfortable outdoor living, without being intrusive or harsh.

Modern solar lights should be designed for UK sunlight conditions (a common problem with buying cheaper solar lights from abroad is that they were designed for warmer, sunnier climates), so make sure before you make a purchase that your lights will perform in the UK.
