Trees look terrific when lit from below since the light illuminates the trunk’s texture and adds softness to the foliage. Just make sure you do actually light up the trunk otherwise you get a bit of a ’UFO hovering effect’ when it’s just the foliage that’s lit up.
Whether it’s a permanent fixture or popped up for a party, gazebos and pergolas are crying out to be lit up! Illuminating your garden structures can create an irresistible living space in seconds. If there is a power source nearby then definitely consider mains garden lights for complete ease of use. We’d always opt for string lights with their durable cables and extendable lengths they’re ideal for wrapping or hanging. Wooden pergolas suit symmetrical lines, gazebo lights work best when hung with a soft drape. When it comes to colours, the contrast between greenery or timber tones and white hues are a match made in heaven which can’t be missed.
You’ll find that these 12-volt systems can be installed by just about anyone. All you need to do is mount the light(s), connect them to the transformer, and then plug them in. You’ll find low voltage LED lights, but also brighter halogen bulbs on the market today to suit your particular needs. Plug and play systems are also available in wall lighting, deck lighting, string lighting and other styles.
Have a flat vertical surface in your garden or other outdoor area? This can be more than just a visual feature – it can be the perfect place to install lighting. You’ll discover a host of different styles out there, from hanging lanterns that mount to the wall to disc shaped lights, squares, swivel lights, spotlights and more. Many of these use LED bulbs for longer life and lower power consumption, but you can also find halogen bulbs if you prefer something more conventional.
