With spending more time in the garden becoming a necessity this year along with the rare spring/summer months offering record high temperatures, if there was any year to begin making your garden the ultimate hang out; its 2020, but that doesn’t mean we should forget about outdoor electrical safety.
It’s the year everyone has focused that little harder on their garden and its potential as well as work on the home to make it more pleasant to the eye. So for that final look to make those warm evenings complete, outside lighting really completes the package.
Doing away with floodlights that were harsh on the required mood lighting, Slimline LED and ultra-compact design has made sitting in the garden a relaxing experience as well as adding extra security with its doubling as automatic security for the home.
Even if you sit indoors and prefer to look over your garden on an overcast or rainy night, you can control the mood via remote and have your lighting dimmed to your satisfaction. If you plan on decking or putting steps up to your home they are complemented and highlighted by step lights which offer an extra level of safety at night.
With more events taking place in the garden there is more need to focus on electrical safety. Many people fall foul of the curse of leads stemming from the house to the garden being a tripping hazard or even getting cut if slammed in a door.
With power outlets installed in decking or steps you are given safety measures but also be sure to have them checked over time by a qualified domestic electrician. Loose casings or missing lids can be severely affected by the elements and leave your garden at risk.
When it comes to creativity there are countless options available. Path lighting offers many variables that can create a full feel of character and not as boring as some would look. String lights in trees can make that shaved down tree resemble an artistic expression whilst festoon lights bring the party atmosphere all year round.
Installing garden lighting is recommended to be overlooked by local domestic electricians for safety and ensuring the correct current is running through mains or a transformer.
