Garden lights

Were having our garden done and having a pergola installed. Were also having outside sockets installed too. Id like some really good outside lights for all year round, obviously that can be plugged into the outside electrical sockets.
Can anyone recommend some good ones please?

Nice. I like exterior lighting, brings a different perspective to a garden.

If you can find any lights that don't rust or oxidise please let me know as I am yet to find any!

I spent big money on 2 stainless steel pillar lights. Three years later they are oxidised sadly.

Going back to the power I would run them on their own circuit with all the Regs complied with namely the correct depth, gel boxes for the connections etc.

Best of luck.

Weve got stainless steel electric lights in our garden which weve had for years! Havent rusted and have been great and still look like new!

I know I kept the original order details in case we ever had any problems. So will look them out to see if you can even still get them now!

Can I ask that you dont fix a large lamp on the back wall of your house which you think adds a nice atmosphere to your evening bbqs.

My neighbour did - not only does it illuminate his patio, it also shines through my bathroom window into the bedroom. Its like living in Colditz.

I can't get my head around 'up and down' exterior lights. What is the uplight bit for? Guiding aircraft in to land!

Haha but that would look fabulous under a plant! I love lit up trees and plants.

One or two neighbours have these on the porch wall on each side of the door. I think they look really attractive.

Under a porch I agree as the light on top will hit the porch roof underside and 'bounce' back down. Extra illumination that way.
