Need garden ideas on a budget? Try these easy ideas to make your outdoor space look fantastic.

Outdoor lights and solar lights are both great ways of adding a touch of light to your garden or yard space. They provide a soft and warm light that’s not too stark; perfect for creating a warm, welcoming atmosphere and a cosy environment to enjoy outside. These lights can be bought online all year around and they’re a quick, simple and cheap way to bring a pretty glow to a patio and beyond. You can arrange them through tree or shrub branches, attach them to fences and furniture, or suspend them from canes stuck into the ground.

It is a long established fact that a reader will be distracted by the readable content of a page when looking at its layout. The point of using Lorem Ipsum is that it has a more-or-less normal distribution of letters, as opposed to using ‘Content here, content here’, making it look like readable English. Many desktop publishing packages and web page editors now use Lorem Ipsum as their default model text, and a search for ‘lorem ipsum’ will uncover many web sites still in their infancy. Various versions have evolved over the years, sometimes by accident, sometimes on purpose (injected humour and the like)

Garden lights are a great way of lighting up your outside space in the summer so that you can make the most of your garden and enjoy it even when the sun has gone down. 

Lighting plants and rockery

Putting lighting in between rocks and stones will make shadows and shapes with great effect at night and will enhance the scenery at night. There are hundreds of small low level spike lights which use LED power and can be easily concealed in these areas.   Spread lights can also be used in rockery areas as a down light. Twin adjustable spike lights are also very flexible and enable you to down light or highlight an object with one lamp whilst up lighting a tree or tall shrub with the other lamp.

You can add a touch of class to your garden and driveway with matching garden lighting sets. Solar lights are perfect for creating ambience outdoors and it will set the mood for evening entertainment.

Avoiding problems

Be careful not to create too much glare when placing outdoor lights, think carefully what you are going to expose. You may have a dirty old shed somewhere in the corner which you don’t want to expose at night, so think about the beam direction and where it is going to. If you have some lights at the bottom of the yard then make sure they are not pointing directly back at the patio or decking where you are going to be spending most of your time. This will create an unwanted glare in your eyes, which will stop you from being able to see the rest of the garden in comfort.
