Research has estimated that four out of five Australian households had their own garden at home.
Given this figure, it’s safe to say that Australians love their gardens! And for those who do, we are pretty sure that countless hours have been spent tending and beautifying these sacred outdoor spaces.
In addition to great landscaping, there is one more element that can enhance and improve the outdoors: garden lighting.
In this blog post we will share some important considerations you may make when it comes to planning and installing garden lighting fixtures.
Go eco-friendly for your garden lighting
Make your garden even greener by using different types of eco-friendly lighting fixtures.
Get the best of both worlds with modern garden lighting fixtures that are both eco-friendly and efficient!
Be led by LED
LED lights are not only great inside the home, they’re perfect for the outdoors, too!
The LED outdoor lights that you can use for your garden are energy efficient and reliable.
While you may need to install these with the help of an experienced electrician, using LED lighting in the garden is a smart alternative to other lighting fixtures to ensure efficient energy usage.
The great thing about LED garden lights is that you can use them all year round and that there are so many varieties. These are some of our favourites:
LED floodlights or spotlights
Make a bold statement in your backyard, with a floodlight highlighting a specific space, like a water feature.
LED area lights
Highlight patios or any other covered outdoor space for both safety and functionality.
LED garden lights
Create a warm and inviting ambiance in your garden, with garden lights to illuminate pathways or highlight plants and flowers.
LED underwater lights
A softly glowing pool or spa is a really special feature.
LED wall lights
Wall sconces and lighting helps keep an entryway illuminated and safe for guests or late-night residents returning home after a night out!
Make it smart: smart lighting in the backyard
One of the most popular garden lighting trends lately has been smart lighting.
Yes, smart technology has evolved from inside the home to the outside!
Garden lighting automation makes it easy to transform the ambiance of your garden within seconds.
Hosting a BBQ at home? Light up your entertaining area, and softly illuminate the pool.
Welcoming people to your home? Light up the garden path in the front yard as guests arrive.
Depending on your garden installation plans, you have control of the functions – from spotlights to ground lights that change colour.
With just using the smart control options of your smart lighting, you can automatically transform your garden into something even more beautiful when night falls.
