At night, your garden needs a little something extra to shine. Don't settle for just lighting your seating, you can create a whole atmosphere with garden lights, by the placement and style of the lights themselves. These innovative garden light designs will impress you, let's get started! 

Light the Trees

One of the best places to install your lights is in your trees, particularly the perimeter trees. The texture of the leaves makes for a dramatic shadowy display, and lining the perimeter trees ensures that the whole garden is lit up.

These gorgeous lights add a natural elegance to garden walkways. The best part? They still look natural in the winter! We have plenty more unusual garden lighting options in our gallery here

Stone Light

This grand light is similar to the log lights, but acts as a focal point for the garden instead of pathway lighting. It looks especially elegant in Asian-inspired gardens. 

Water Feature

One of the most elegant areas to light in the garden is the water feature. A sparkling water feature looks magical, especially if the spout is also lit, like this glowing example.

To get a subtle brightness in every corner of your garden, you could install these lovely pathway stones that under-lit. You'll need a professional's help for this one though.
