We’re taking it back to basics with this month’s blog! Here are some of our top garden lighting tips to get you started with making your garden glow.
Bump up the romance
Our stunning festoon and hanging lighting can really bring your garden to life. It can create a romantic and peaceful ambiance and is rarely expensive to install.
Layer your Light
To make your yard look as beautiful at night as it does during the day, landscape lighting is essential. Here at the Garden Lighting shop we'll show you how to combine ambient lighting with task lights for a beautiful look and security and safety. We can also give you advice on how to incorporate accent lighting such as spotlights, strip lights, leds, festoon lighting and water-feature lighting.
Light up your resources
Add some drama by spotlighting a tree or other garden focal point. Spotlights can really accentuate plants and tree trunks and can create a pleasing glow on other garden foliage in the evening.
Guide the Way
It’s a great idea to use garden lighting to lead guests to your home to your front door. A trail of lights set along the pathway can give a magical look. We recommend that you avoid placing the lights all in a straight line as this can create a bit of a runway effect. Remember t combine safety with attractiveness for all entry lighting - guide visitors to the front door with welcoming lights that sufficiently illuminate any stairs or other potential hazards.
I can’t find your house?
Use lighting to ensure that your house number or name is well lit at night time for both safety and practicality. It will be easy to find after dark by both visiting guests and emergency services.
Decorative solar-powered landscape lights require no wiring, making them super easy and safe to use and install. Simply place them in a sunny spot, and when the sun goes in, they will start to shine. We have a huge range here at the Garden Lighting shop and will of course advice you on selecting yours.
