Garden Lighting Reviews


With today's current trend for turning the garden into an extension of the home, we now spend more and more time outdoors eating, relaxing and entertaining. Having designed our garden, furnished it with tables, chairs and container plants, many people think that's it. But the next logical step is to extend the hours you spend out there, which in most people's case means the evening. The addition of garden lighting provides just this. Whether designed to light up a path or patio, highlight a sculpture or particular plant, or merely to provide light to eat by, lighting can transform the most mundane of gardens. The soft hues of a lantern add a romantic touch, creating an intimate atmosphere. The subtle positioning of a spot lamp adds drama to a border or pond. The possibilities are endless: tree fairy lights, underpath or underpatio lighting, lanterns, lamps, spots and floating lights are all easily available today. Solar-powered, battery-run or mains electric, the choice is wide and suit a variety of locations. Many are easily installed yourself, requiring only the basics of electrical skills. Look at garden lighting as a means of adding interest and not just as a practicality. Theatrical effects can be achieved with careful placement, casting shadows and intriguing silhouettes. Yes, lights outside front doors are necessary but with a bit of imagination inspired by this book, even that can be transformed into something special and welcoming to guests. Apart from inspiration and design, this book provides clear instruction in the practicalities of choice and installation, ensuring the right product is chosen for the right situation. Well illustrated and diagrammed, this is an informative basic guide to this modern form of gardening. - Lucy Watson
