DIY Garden Lighting – Home Improvement Thursday

Garden Lighting is a great way to add atmosphere to your outdoor entertaining space. Did you know that it can be easy to install by yourself, without the help of an electrician?


DIY Garden Lighting That is Safe To Install Yourself

Many hardware shops such as Bunnings have comprehensive ranges of DIY outdoor lighting that is safe and easy to install. Check out this tutorial by Bunnings, to see just how simple it really is.


In the above shot, we strung fairy light between the trees, and then added some fill in lighting using the Bunnings DIY system, to shine on a few feature trees.

This great system available from Beacon is really easy to install, check out the You Tube video to show you how.

Not really sure that DIY garden lighting is your thing, but would still love the soft mood of simple garden lighting? Why not try solar lights? They have come such a long way since when first released, now stylish, durable and with longer powered light, these are a great option for most gardens.

These lights were simple party lights, in 18m lengths that we stung up between the hedge and the house, the created the perfect entrance to our party.

So much can be done with lighting to enhance the mood. Bright naked fluros can be a thing of the past with a little planning, and an hours DIY.
