The days may be getting shorter but that doesn't mean we hit the switch and turn off the garden! Right now is the perfect time to be illuminating your garden as you'll have more evening hours to enjoy the light. A few of our easy garden lighting tips are sure to point you in the right direction for the perfect winter garden!
Lighting by day & night
Lighting in your outdoor space can turn your garden into a completely different place! Lighting up dark corners and illuminating garden paths creates a magical feel come evening. No better way to arrive home in the dark and see your garden magically lit up!
When designing your outdoor space, it’s important to remember that although lighting is designed for the evening, it needs to look great in the day too! The most subtle day look are our solar seed copper wire lights. Invisible during the day, they offer a beautiful ambient light once it's dark.
Garden lanterns and outdoor festoon lights are another way to add that after dark ambience!
Use lanterns to light up your pathways or add a little light to the outdoor view like this customer did.
Or use a combination of fairy lights and festoon lights to create a showstopping scene that no one will be able to resist! Our top tip is to take a look from inside your home and make sure your outdoor decor flows naturally into your outdoor space.
Create a canopy!
This time of year the weather can be a little up and down! You can have cold moody days followed by sunhine days and crisp, chilly nights.
The best place to start in your garden is too find an area that is a little sun trap to create a canopy over. Simply swag outdoor fairy lights over and around the area for that cosy feel! This way even if the sun goes down you can still enjoy some sparkle in your outdoor space. This works well with fairy lights for a subtle sparkle or festoons for an on trend display. Whichever you prefer, accessorise with cushions and blankets for a soft feel that can easily be brought out on warmer days!
How many lights?
Whether you’re going for fairy lights or festoons it can be tricky to get the length right! To make this super easy, we recommend getting a simple ball of string. Simply swag the string how you would like the lights to look around your garden. Once you’ve achieved your vision simply measure up the length of the string and order to lights to match! Our connectable range of lights have flexible 10m lengths that can be easily added to extend your display!
