Get your garden spring ready!

Written by: Ben Naughton

As we move into the warmer months, getting your garden back in shape can seem like a big task. We’ve pulled together our favourite tips so you can spring into the new season! With a guide to solar lights and tips for creating a warm welcome at your door, your garden will have that spring feel in no time!

Solar Lights...

The spring and summer months are just made for solar lights. The hassle free lighting is sure to have your garden looking fresh throughout the seasons. Solar lights are so popular because they are just so easy! Simply pop the lights out in the garden to soak up the sun and they’ll automatically illuminate with a summer glow. Fairy lights are perfect for entwining in shrubs or around pergolas – the solar panel means you can place these little lights just about anywhere. Solar lanterns are another way you can add some extra light to your garden. We suggest placing lanterns on patios or in darker corners to add some light. You can also hang them high, our Carlton Solar Lantern brings a magical glow.

Path Lights...

Right now we’re all about dusting off the garden furniture and getting ready to spend more time outdoors. If your garden is in need of a refresh after the winter months, a few little changes can make all the difference! Whether you opt for something functional for lighting the way up paths and driveways or something more decorative, you can bring your outdoor space to life. For a path that runs beside foliage, solar stake lights are the perfect addition. If you’re looking for something a little softer, our mini mushrooms create an enchanting look that everyone will love! For paved pathways, solar brick lights are a must! They give off a lot of light and you can line the entire path right to your front door.

A Warm Welcome

At Christmas time our entrances take centre stage! We all hang wreaths on our doors and add fairy lights to foliage, to then take it down when the festive period comes to an end. However, we think a warm welcome is important all year round. Lanterns placed at your front door can make such a difference. Using the handy timer they’ll automatically illuminate, meaning you’ll come home to a warm welcome every evening with minimal effort.

A Splash of Colour...

Whether you’re looking to light up your garden for a summer soiree or to keep up all summer long, it really is the time of year for a splash of colour! Whether it’s a string of outdoor fairy lights or a canopy of festoons, colourful lighting really brings that party feeling that comes with the summer months. If opting for colour is new for you,
focus on a small area to brighten up and go for a green cable that will blend into foliage perfectly.

Whether you’re going for a subtle glow or transforming your whole outdoor space, our range of garden lights is perfect for lighting up your garden.
