Give your Garden a Glow Up

Having the ‘right’ lighting is important in any space and your garden is no exception. Our stylish home and garden emporium is brimming with wonderful lighting products suited to the outdoors.

Lighting should form part of your garden design because it makes entertaining friends possible – as well as forming the inspiration for enchanting fairy and firefly stories with your children.

Some modern lights can also warm you and your guests, as well as doubling as speakers or a handy drinks cooler.

So, let’s explore some gorgeous (and practical) additions that’ll have your garden glowing this spring.

1. Begin with Drinks and Tapas

Keter Cool Bar Table with Lights

Whether you’re hosting a small evening gathering or a large garden party – why not dazzle your guests with this illuminated table?

Combining a stylish ice bucket and a handy tabletop surface to place tasty tapas and nibbles on – simply top up the lower compartment with ice and you’re good to go. Battery operated, the integral LED lights will ‘wow’ your guests and act as a great conversation starter.

At brighter times of the day, you can still utilise this sleek light as a side table to rest your coffee on – simply grab that new book everyone’s talking about and relax.

2. Select Sculptural Pieces

Extreme Lounging B Bulb Plus Outdoor Light

Whilst you could use this sculptural light by Extreme Lounging indoors, we’re loving its weatherproof and UV resistant credentials – lighting up your garden with ease. This means you can leave your new ‘artwork’ outdoors – as a super convenient and practical light.

At 55 cm, it’s bound to become a focal point – or pair it with the smaller version (sold separately) to create an ‘arty’ arrangement. The only time you’ll need to bring it indoors is to charge the light via USB. This takes just four hours to achieve 22 hours of illumination – so this gorgeous light won’t cut the party short.

Customise your garden’s ‘mood’ with three brightness levels and the choice of two different tones (soft or bright white).

3. Who Doesn’t Love String Lights?

Garden Trading Golf Ball Festoon Lights with 20 Bulbs

Reminiscent of continental ‘cafe-style’ lighting – now you can amaze your children with fairy lights displayed along trees, shrubs or fences. Tell them magical stories of fireflies and fairies – the possibilities for storytelling are endless with these warm white festoon lights.

Likewise, your grown-up guests will appreciate their ambience – whilst the loop attached to each of the 20 LED bulbs makes fixing them a ‘doddle’. Plus there’s a 3m lead between the plug and the first ‘golf ball’ bulb.

Weatherproof, with a lifespan of 5,000 hours, imagine the parties you can throw – will you choose the ‘White’ or ‘Black’ option?

4. Include Moving Flames - Safely

Cosi Fires Cosiscoop Fire Lantern

We all know it can still be a little chilly in spring – but don’t let the temperature stop you from enjoying your revamped garden.

This portable metal and glass fire lantern by Cosi Fires can be carried to your chosen ‘spot’ – whilst the curved glass surround, adjustable flame height and CE quality mark are key safety features. All you need is a 190gr gas cartridge (which we sell separately) to give your garden a glow for six hours or so.

With five beautiful colours to choose from – including colourful ‘Green’ and ‘Terracotta’ – there’s bound to be a colourway that ‘speaks to you’.

5. Keep Warm Too

Heatsail Dome Freestanding Electric Patio Heater Floor Lamp in Black with +25 HEAT

This distinctively domed outdoor patio heater and lamp will brighten your garden in style – use each feature together or independently for true flexibility.

Constructed from strong galvanised steel – before being powder coated in a rust-proof industrial black coating – it radiates heat up to five metres. Consuming five times lower energy use than a classic gas-powered patio heater, there are also no emissions – but plenty of health benefits.

Sending out Far Infrared Rays (FIR) this heater lamp stimulates increased circulation and helps with relaxation.

6. Lighting with Music - Yes, Really!

Koble Mantle Smart Lantern with Speaker

This ultra-modern lantern from Koble will emit an LED glow – setting the perfect mood for a romantic alfresco meal (and drinks) with your significant other.

Sync your phone via the Bluetooth speaker whatever the occasion – music really does help create the perfect party atmosphere. Connect your phone’s charging lead to the power bank via the USB port – it provides an incredible 18 hours of battery life should your family decide to camp out in the garden.

Available in fresh white – this metal & ABS plastic smart speaker is splash-proof too.

7. Marshmallow Anyone?

Cook King Bali Fire Bowl

Handcrafted using premium quality steel for outdoor areas – fire is the most traditional way to give your garden a ‘glow up’.

Stock up on waffle cones, fruit, marshmallows and dare we say chocolate, to toast s’mores or cook ‘campfire cones’.

In terms of practicality, the concave steel bowl stops wood ash from blowing towards you – perfect for families with kids or ‘fur babies’. Plus, it’s available in diameters of 60, 80 or 100 cm – so there’s plenty of room to burn logs (skip the coal here!).

Don’t forget the accessories either – there’s a compatible lid, mesh screen cover and grill plate to choose from (sold separately).
