Garden Lighting Safety

Whenever working with any kind of electrical system, it is always important to consult a professional electrician to ensure the safety of your property and family. This precaution is especially important when working with electrical systems that will be exposed to the elements such as garden lighting.

Ideas for Outdoor Lighting

Garden lighting can add beautiful accenting to your property, show off your yard’s best features, and even add safety to your property by illuminating hazards. Some great ideas for garden lighting could include:

Festoon Lights

Festoon lights, string lights, and festival lights can take a variety of different sizes and styles, including lanterns, Christmas lights, globe lights, or Starpoint lighting. They are a perfect way to give a garden character and provide lighting for parties or gatherings.


Bulkhead lighting is perfect for outdoor settings. Depending on the style used, they can give a garden a feel that ranges from industrial to nautical to cosy cabin. They are watertight and offer soft but incredibly bright light for areas that need to be illuminated.


Spotlights can be used to highlight all kinds of features to capitalize on the beauty already present in your garden, making them an excellent option for garden lighting. They can also be used to project shadows in creative ways.

Line Lighting

Lighting up your yard can not only add and highlight beauty but can also illuminate functions and hazards. Line lighting can provide strips of illumination for paths and stairs to guide foot traffic. It can also be used in conjunction with water features to light up the surface of the water.

Ground Lights

When spaced properly, outdoor ground lights can be an excellent way to light up a path, outline a lawn, or provide caution for a hazard such as a slope or a drop-off.
