Property - How to tip
Summer’s here but before we know it, the days will be getting shorter again, which is where garden lighting comes in.
The key to good outdoor lighting is to think it through - you may want security lights, but these won’t be pleasant to sit out under in the evenings, so choose something softer for your deck or patio.
To make the most of your outside space, install lights to pick out paths and steps, and even to highlight features like ponds, trees and plants.
