Patio Lights – These are vital if you want to use this valuable space in the evening, or during the night. Patios are popular entertainment areas and it can be difficult to find illumination to add to the ambiance of the area, as well as providing enough light for normal vision. The answer is to choose two or more different types: perhaps fairy lights for creating a nice atmosphere, and wall lanterns for general illumination. Flood Lights – These can be used to illuminate a large area. Flood lights are normally affixed to the ground or walls and can also add light to a specific area, such as a patio or flower bed. They come in a wide variety of finishes like bronze, steel, plastic, etc. Floodlighting your garden or backyard can create a safe and well-illuminated environment. Since these are designed to be weather resistant and tamper-proof, they can last for many years.
