One of the key elements of garden design is outdoor illumination. Luckily, there’s a whole range of outdoor lighting to choose from, for every part of the garden.
Atmospheric, cosy and essential outdoor lighting helps you to make the most of the space, but knowing where and what to illuminate can be confusing. So here are my go to tips to help you get started.
Portable lanterns are a perfect outdoor lighting option. They can be clustered on patios for a cosy addition to garden seating, line paths to guide your guests to the dinner table, or add an intimate glow to the table itself. They also protect candles from the elements. There are an incredible variety to choose from, just make sure to look for lanterns suitable for outdoor use.
String lights are a fabulous addition to any garden and are loved for their laidback feel. Particularly dramatic and inviting when zig-zagged over a seating or dining area, they create a canopy of lights suitable for any occasion.
