Outdoor Garden Lighting

By admin On July 25, 2008 Under Garden Accessories

Lighting really brings a garden to life but you do not have to wait till after dark to enjoy it. The best time to appreciate the twinkle of lights among plants is towards dusk and there is nothing like candles for putting you in the mood when you are eating outdoors or just relaxing over a glass of wine after work.

There is more to garden lighting than just sitting out late on balmy summer nights though that sounds pretty good to me. If you have a beautiful water feature, underwater lighting makes it mega glamorous. You could light up your gardens best features or have a working antique gas mantle to welcome you home. For apres-barbecue ambience, low lights outline the whole garden with a romantic glow, leading visitors safely round rambling paths and illuminating steps or drawing you to the gazebo down the garden, its not only moths that are attracted to light.

But it is not just guests who benefit, the right lighting makes every evening outdoors into a special occasion. Try rearranging the lights slightly from season to season or from party to party. After dark the effect is as good as a garden make over but without the bother.

Garden lighting can be purchased from many large DIY stores such as Homebase Garden Furniture and B&Q DIY Online. These companies will stock most types of garden lighting including globe lights, shaded lights, pathway markers, feature lights, floodlights and outdoor fairy lights.
