The nights may be drawing in, but there’s still plenty of time to enjoy a cool evening in the garden before winter well and truly arrives. Especially when your decking is beautifully lit.
If you’re thinking about squeezing some more use out of your garden this year with barbecues, garden parties or a little alfresco dining under the stars, you might want to consider LED lighting.
As well as creating a warm and cosy ambience in your garden, LED lighting is reliable, energy-efficient and long-lasting. And, in some cases, you don’t even need to call in the professionals to install it.
The right light for you
There are lots of LED decking light kits to choose from, ranging from walkover lights to LED strips – and all in a range of colours, shapes and sizes. It’s just about finding the right style to suit your decking area. Here are a few things you might want to consider.
Walkover lights are a neat and efficient way to brighten up your decking. Whilst all outdoor lights should be durable, these lights, as the name suggests, are specifically designed to be walked over, and are fully waterproof to withstand the elements.
Walkover lights come in a range of shapes to suit your style, and are fitted directly into the decking to reduce the chance of tripping over them.
For decking that really dazzles, take a look at the Colour Changing Round IP67 decking light kit. From a handy touchscreen controller, you can choose from thousands of colours to set the mood in your garden.
LED strips and ground spikes
As well as decking light kits, you might also want to consider other lighting options such as LED strips or ground spikes.
LED strips are great if you’re looking for a more discreet way to light up your decking area. They fit seamlessly under stairs, beneath rails and around the borders of your decking, creating a warm and relaxing glow.
For something with a little more sparkle, ground spikes around the border of your decking are ideal for showcasing plant pots and water features, giving your garden the real wow-factor.
