A Stroll Through Our Garden LightingFriday 20th March 2015 01:59pm
We’ve got plenty of sun and long, warm summers, so it makes perfect sense to invest in our gardens and outdoor living spaces. After dark, why go indoors when the fantastic garden lighting at Lighting Illusions means you can enjoy entertaining and relaxing outdoors in the cool evening air?
Lighting Your Way
Garden lighting comes in many shapes and sizes, and one of the first things most people think about is lighting to show where paths, steps and other important circulation features are, for ease of movement and safety. Of course, garden lighting enhances your property’s appearance, as well.
Spike lighting is a great option for outdoors. Once you have inserted them into the ground, you can adjust the angles of spike lights to shine wherever you want. Check out the Cool White Adjustable Spike Light for just one example of what’s on offer. Made from marine grade stainless steel, it shouldn’t rust even if you live near the ocean or have a saltwater pool. These lights look great lining a path or around the edges of your pool. Because LED lighting is so energy efficient, you can use these lights outdoors without worrying too much about high energy bills or frequently having to change the globes.
If you have a pond in your garden, think about using submersible lights to highlight it at night. The Submersible Pond Light 316 is designed to show off the beautiful plants and fish in your pond, and if you’re having a party at home, your guests won’t stumble into it by mistake. The marine grade stainless steel should resist everything Mother Nature throws at it, as long as it’s properly maintained, and you’ll get double the enjoyment out of the pond if you can see it after dark.

Post lights that cast illumination over a wide area will light up your whole garden space if that’s what you want, and shopping for lighting online means you’ll find just what you’re after.
