Outdoor lighting is a great way to make the most of your outdoor space after dark. It’s easy to create a mood and atmosphere which emphasises your garden’s best features. Regardless of whether you’re buying on a budget or strapped for space, at Wilko we have something suitable to create the perfect atmosphere in your garden.
Illuminate your ideas
It’s a great idea to plan out what you want to achieve with your outdoor lighting. A few carefully chosen lights can give your outside space another dimension and make it a place you’ll love chilling out in after dark. Have a look round your outdoor space and pick out key areas you’d like to illuminate, draw attention to and distract attention away from. Great places for outdoor lights might include, trees, walkways, table tops, summer houses or the edges of borders. Here are a few of our favourite lighting solutions:
Shiny string lights
Elegant and stylish, string lights can instantly transform your garden, regardless of how much space you have. String lights are incredibly versatile. You can hang them in strips above your seating area, hang them on tree branches or around a gazebo to give your garden a cosy feel. We have various designs to choose from including pretty butterflies, flowers and dragonflies in a range of bright colours. You could group together a couple of sets to really create that wow factor.
Candles and lanterns you’ll love
Whether you’re having a family gathering or an intimate dinner for two, candles and tea lights clustered around a patio will provide instant ambiance. Using lanterns can add to the overall look and feel you are creating, whether hung on a wall or placed on your garden table. Scented candles are also great for adding to the atmosphere.
Safety first! Never leave lit candles unattended and always ensure that they are out of reach of children and animals.
Super solar lights
At Wilko, we love things to be easy and affordable. Solar lights are a great option; they’re quick to get up and running, without the help of any professionals, and they’re eco-friendly, using a renewable energy source. Solar lights allow you to be as creative as you fancy, giving you the freedom to place them anywhere you like without the hassle of a battery pack. Our solar lights come in various designs including solar strings, solar sticks and solar clip lights, which are perfect for prettying up the washing line!
Magnificent marker lights
Marker lights or stake lights are the perfect way to accentuate a pathway, water feature or rockery. They’re quick and easy to set up – just stick them in the ground and once they’re charged, they are good to glow! How about placing our solar sticks along your garden pathway for guidance in the evening? They’re super practical and they’ll look fantastic.
Whatever your garden style, you’re sure to find the lighting you desire here.
