Your garden is your very own slice of the great outdoors - which makes it the perfect place for solar lighting. This is the ideal choice if you're after a lighting solution that's economical and environmentally friendly, because it relies solely on sunlight to convert this into an electrical current. And what makes it even more convenient is that there are no wires involved! No matter what you've got in mind for your outdoor space, you'll find a choice of great solar options in our range.
Outdoor Security Lights and Floodlights
Why not take a look at our range of security lights too? These are a must when it comes to feeling safe and secure in your home - and our options range from basic sensor lights through to more hi-tech designs. Consider an all-in-one floodlight and security camera system featuring powerfully bright lights, two way audio function and motion detection alerts sent straight to your smart device. And if you're on a bit of a budget then some of our more simple styles will still do the job perfectly. Consider our floodlights from Luceco - with a motion sensor that works from up to eight metres away and a bright LED bulb, these will illuminate your outdoor space to deter potential intruders and give you a completely clear view of what's going on in your garden or driveway.
Smart Outdoor Lighting
Smart technology has the power to make everything that little bit easier and smart lighting is certainly no exception. You'll be able to keep complete control over when and how your home is lit - no matter where you are. Shop our full range of smart outdoor lights for many different kinds of options from leading brands like Philips. Some smart outdoor wall lights are a brilliant choice when it comes to illuminating entrances around your home; compatible with both iOS and Android devices, these feature motion detection technology and you'll be able to set schedules too. Check out our lantern designs for a stylish look - or how about our smart strip lights with voice control for an easy way to create ambience? Whichever you choose, what they all have in common is convenience, efficiency and flexibility.
Garden and Outside Lights
Want to make sure your garden is a place where you love to spend your time? From seating areas to the right pots and plants, there are lots of ways to do this - and you've come to the right place for plenty of garden inspiration. But why not start by setting the mood in your back garden with some carefully chosen decorative lighting? This is a must-have if you enjoy entertaining and it's a particularly lovely thing to have during the summer months when you want to spend more time outside enjoying the warmer weather. And for a welcoming ambience and a soft, gentle glow, you really can't beat some pretty fairy lights. We've got you covered with coloured options plus warm and cool white LED styles - or how about festoon bulbs for a stylish on-trend look?
And for special occasions, our bunting designs are the ideal way to set the party atmosphere. Take a look at our great range of classic garden lamp posts as well. We have some brilliant solar options so all you need to do is stand them in a sunny location - and in addition to lighting up your garden, they'll make a really striking and beautiful focal point too. Why not use yours to highlight an area of your garden that you particularly love? You could even consider a matching set of two for a coordinated look at both ends of your garden.
Garden Furniture & Heating
The days are getting lighter & longer, we are able to spend more time in the garden enjoying the sunshine. With new outdoor lights, why not refresh your garden furniture too? A new patio set is a great feeling especially with the new found freedom of being able to meet outside with 6 people. Our patio sets come in all sizes and some can seat up to 8 people.
It could still get a bit chilly outside while we are in spring, so why not add a fire pit to give yourself a little bit of warmth during the windy evenings or even a fleece throw to snuggle under. For when we get the occasional spring shower , cover your furniture with a Gazebo or patio furniture cover.
