In our house, the English summer has finally arrived! Barbecue dates are looming and now is the time to get back in the garden and start shopping for some easy ways to make the very most of the twilight hours too, before getting stuck into the weeding, planting and grilling!
Wall lights are the ideal solution to lighting up your driveway and front porch, whether it's for added security or purely decorative reasons. Our security lighting does exactly what is says on the box. All security lights have a PIR motion sensor, some with adjustable timers and distance settings to switch on at your convenience. They come in all shapes and sizes, from traditional Flood lights to contemporary up/down spotlights like John Lewis Tin Pir Spotlight One to look out for online is the Solar Centre Evo 36 solar powered floodlight. It's so easy to install, has a super bright LED light output and all the economical and ecological benefits of solar energy. The Timeguard PIR controller will transform an existing outdoor wall light to a security light with minimal wiring.
Our decorative wall light range has never looked so good with new shapes and finishes this season. The Garden Trading Company is a new brand and the Fishing light has an elegant shape and rustic feel.
We have catered for the traditional customer with the Harris lantern, it's smart and simple with the added feature of a PIR sensor and is also available in white.
At the premium end of the range is the Salerno wall light. A sleek rectangular pillar with opal glass panels, can be mounted vertically or horizontally but always with style.
As the warmer weather arrives and the garden party season starts to kick in, there's nothing worse than sitting in the dark with all of your guests. We have all sorts of solutions to combat this - all of which are solar powered.
New this season is the Solar Centre brand. This is a mix of wall and security lighting, garden stakes and party line lights with premium quality solar panels and the added benefit of a lower rate of light degradation than other brands on the High Street. Our favourite are the multicoloured party lights. Made up of 16 super bright LED lights, with 14m length, they will charge in the sunlight and store up to 40 hours of power. And as the evenings draw in and the sun disappears they can also be charged in winter weather.
Add some British colours to your garden with the red, white and blue solar powered Chinese lanterns. Made from nylon they are hard wearing and will run for up to 8 hours when fully charged. They are perfect to hang from your trees or parasol and are a great talking point around the barbecue.
Along with our wide selection of solar powered garden stakes, with individual solar panels, you won't have any trouble lighting up your summer evenings.
