Adding a garden lamp can make any garden more appealing both day and night, creating an atmosphere and enhancing any features you choose to illuminate. There are several types of lighting available and each can achieve different effects, so it’s important to select the correct light for your garden.
Spotlights Spotlights are great for highlighting the detail of a plant or garden feature, as they emit a single narrow beam that can be easily seen from a long distance. They’re also ideal for illuminating larger, more detailed features such as fences or steps.
Floodlights A common type of lighting, floodlights can be used as security lights with a PIR sensor or to wash a large feature in light. They are usually positioned at ground level to wash over features, but you can also use them as downlights for task areas such as a dining table.
Stakes For a subtle, soft approach to your garden lighting scheme, consider placing small stake lights in the grass or among flowers. They can create a romantic ambience as well as guiding visitors to your garden.
Ornamental Grasses Grass plants are another good nighttime feature for gardens of all sizes, especially when they’re lit by spotlights that shine down on them. They are also perfect for illuminating a water feature, like this one.
Torches Decorative garden torches are a lovely addition for adding drama and warmth to your outdoor space. They can be found in many shapes and styles, making it easy to find a torch that matches your garden decor.
