The perfect finishing touch for your garden is garden lighting. There are as many styles of garden lights as there are varieties of gardens. Whether you want tall lamps, short lights to edge your pathway or even solar lights, you can find the lighting that makes your garden elegant, fun or even magical.
The Victorian gas street lamp style garden lights are always a good choice for a traditional garden. You can select Victorian-style lighting with one bulb or multiple bulbs. Victorian-style garden lights look particularly lovely when paired with taller flowers like larkspurs or even classic topiary trees. A stone bench between two street lamp style garden lamps is a perfect place to relax and enjoy the evening air.
Another popular style of tall garden lighting is the hanging lantern style. This style of garden light lends a modern touch, accentuating gardens with trees, ferns and tropical-looking plants. Hanging lantern garden lighting is a good choice for gardens designed around outdoor entertaining. It goes well with modern outdoor furniture like glass-topped tables and cast-iron seating.
If your garden style includes a touch of the magical and playful, like winding pathways and stone statues half-hidden amongst the flowers, you may like short, colorful garden lights to light your pathways. You can choose from short lamps with traditional colored bulbs or fanciful garden lamps with round, colored bulbs that resemble gazing balls in the daytime. Fairy lights in the trees or wound around a trellis are also a charming complement to your fantasy garden.
A garden built around a pool or patio needs stylish lighting. Pools need to be well-lit at night for safety. Short garden lights in modern chrome are a popular choice for pool lighting. Surrounding your pool with tall lamps reflecting their light into the water brings dramatic elegance to your pool area.
If your garden consists of a small patio with flowers, vegetables and fruit trees in pots, you might like short solar lights to edge your patio. Solar garden lighting is “green” and saves you money.
Whatever style of garden you design, you can find unique garden lighting that suits your style.
