Light up the garden and around the deck for summer entertaining. There are four types of outdoor lights, with varying energy efficiency.
1. LED Garden Lights are energy efficient. Look for multiple bulbs and higher wattage for garden beds and sculptures. A low-voltage LED (light-emitting diode) has a transformer to convert 240-volt household power into a safer 12 volts.
Homes, gardens and architectural spaces can be transformed using LED lighting products, lighting systems and technologies.
LED lighting products and systems benefit from LED properties such as:
2. Low-Voltage Halogen Lights are brighter than LED but use more electricity. They’re best used for accent lighting around the deck area, and they also have transformers to convert power to 12 volts.
3. Solar Lights have rechargeable batteries powered by solar panels. They’re inexpensive to run, with the occasional battery replacement needed, but aren’t as bright as other types. They don’t require wiring and are good for lighting pathways.
4. 240-Volt Halogen Lights are the most powerful and good for lighting trees, but require installation by a qualified electrician. They consume the most electricity so consider using with a timer for energy efficiency.
Dining under the Stars Extend the outdoor dining and entertainment area with lights for function and ambience. Always check if the lights are suited to being used outside and use just one long outdoor extension cord for multiple lights rather than piggybacking lots of cords into one power outlet.
Task Lighting should be unobtrusive and focused over the dining area. Set up a spotlight with a soft glow rather than harsher white light to brighten the dining table.
Accent Lighting adds texture and a decorative element. Highlight planters or position lights for dramatic effect with shadows. Connect outdoor lights to automatic sunset timers that sense dusk and dawn to operate more efficiently.
Ambient Lighting can be used on the table with candles or overhead with soft light from a chandelier.
Heavy Duty Lighting Minimize glare from floodlights by focusing them away from the direct line of view or diffusing the brightness by positioning rocks and foliage around them.
On the deck
Position matching downlights under the eaves for even light distribution onto the deck, and drape LED fairy lights along tree branches for year-round entertaining.
