If you frequently visit your yard after dark, it can be a good idea to install some garden lights and lighting.
Without garden lights, a garden can become a black void, uncomfortable looking and detached from the rest of the yard.
Gardens have so much potential when lit, as they have so many structures which lights can be attached to.
Water fountains, brick patterns, railings, gazebos, flower beds and other structures are just begging to be adorned with durable garden lights.
To get some lighting done in minimal time, a set of spot lights is a must.
Spot lights create a directional lighting beam which can be pointed at anything.
Plants can be quickly accented by shining the beam onto them from the ground. To make the setup easier, solar spot lights can be used.
Using a solar spot light means that you will not need to do wiring, which is a big time saver. Also, when you use wired models, you can never change around the lights as your garden evolves. Solar lights are portable and can be removed on the fly. A solar panel on the fixture supplies the power.
If you have a pergola, you can shine the lights onto each leg. Don't have one? Look at some pergola pictures to find out how this is done.
If there is a large area of the garden which needs lighting, a flood light may be more suitable. Some people think spot and flood lights are one and the same, but they are different.
Flood lights have a more open beam which covers greater area with a single garden light. They are great for covering gathering areas or openings which are dark. They come in solar models, but they are known to be fairly weak. Opt for a single wired model and augment the floor light with smaller solar pathway lights around the garden.
