During the autumn and winter months, our main concern for garden lighting is often whether or not it keeps us and our guests warm during the evening. However, when it’s summertime and the weather has been wonderfully warm, we don’t need to worry so much about the chill in the air as it’s often a refreshing change. That doesn’t mean that we want our evening to be plunged into darkness, though. With that in mind, ignore winter’s chimineas and firepits and instead take a look at these aesthetically delightful lighting options to illuminate your summer nights.

Solar Powered Garden Lighting

With the weather as it currently is, what better way to power your lights than with solar energy? There’s a wealth of choice when it comes to lighting your garden with solar powered lights, so you can customise your lighting to suit your outside aesthetic. Not only are you being eco-friendly in your garden lighting decisions but you can also be sure that they are spending all day charging, meaning they’re ready to beam bright by the time the sun goes down.

Why not go for something a little unusual for your solar lighting? These solar powered hens are quirky in look whilst also throwing delightful patterns across your lawn.

String Lights

String lights are always a popular choice due to their versatility. Not only are they a perfect way to decorate any decking and railings you have, but you can move them around the garden depending on where the guests are seated. Whether they’re wound daintily around a tree trunk or draped artfully over your dining table, string lights are the ideal way to keep you lit wherever you go.

These elegant string lights add a touch of urban chic to your soiree and can be used indoors too, so you can get the most of them all year round.

Furniture Lighting

What better way to make the most of your outdoor space than to incorporate your furniture and lighting all in one. From seating to tables, there are some exquisite design options currently available for furniture lighting, and they certainly make a wonderful talking point during those late summer evenings.
