It’s time to start thinking seriously about your garden lighting options and how to make the most of your outdoor spaces in the summer.
Garden lighting can be one of the most challenging types of lighting to get right because of the environmental factors and safety considerations. But it can also be one of the most rewarding when you nail it, which is why a garden lighting guide is always useful.
We have prepared a special garden lighting guide but before you read it, here are some top tips on how to light your garden this summer time.
Use ground lights to illuminate features
If you have a feature in your garden, like a prominent tree, statue, structure or rockery, you can use ground lights to illuminate it and turn it into a centre-piece.
Buy porch lights to create a social area
Porch lights can be placed on the walls of your house to illuminate your outdoor social areas. This means that you can have barbecues, parties and social events, or just chill with your family, even when the light begins to fade.
Add style and substance with post lights
Post lights can be used functionally to light up walkways etc but can also be used as stunning decorations to add a bit of style and glamour to your garden.
How to stay safe with garden lighting
Garden lighting is popular and fashionable and can transform your outdoor areas into a summer paradise. But, it is really important to consult a professional electrician to make sure that they are installed properly otherwise they could become dangerous.
