Garden lighting is a stylish and practical way to create atmosphere in your outdoor space, whatever size or shape it may be, so when good weather comes around you can enjoy spending time al fresco, long into the night.
These days there is a huge range of designs and types of outside lighting available to suit every possible budget. Whether you want discreet or decorative lights, wall or ground level, built in or freestanding, you are sure to find something to suit your sense of style. Even a small garden can benefit from some subtle illumination.
Outdoor lights are not just a great way of creating visual appeal, they fulfil practical needs too. For instance, bollards, lamp posts or pedestal lights can illuminate a pathway, which is particularly useful in a large garden where light from the house does not reach across the whole area. Or for the front of the house, driveway or front garden lighting, especially outdoor lanterns, can be both welcoming and important for security purposes.
As technology advances, the range of outdoor lighting available becomes ever more sophisticated. LED lights consume far less electricity than traditional bulbs and yet provide strong illumination in a range of colours. Lights are now available that can be recessed into steps or installed in the ground and walked over, with wiring systems that are surprisingly easy to deal with.
