|There are different lights for all areas of the garden. Spotlights used for features, trees and ponds, bollard lights for general lighting, up-lights for paths and driveways and even post type street lights. There are different styles of fittings and also different fittings for different budgets.
When used in conjunction with a movement sensor and or a light sensor garden lighting can also enhance security to your premises. Energy efficient lamps can be installed into most garden light fittings so extended use of lights in the garden needn’t cost the earth either. In fact by using compact fluorescent lights in the garden you can create mood lighting by using different colour temperature light bulbs. New style LED garden light fittings are also available for some applications.
When you install your garden lighting (except for perhaps low voltage 12 volt lighting installations) you must use the services of a qualified electrician. Even though we are in a drought, it will rain one day and the combination of electricity and water can be a deadly mix.
