The garden lamp has taken on a fundamental role in recent years. Beyond the classic and traditional lighting that we know, spotlights or street lamps, lamps enrich and complete the outdoor furniture. The garden lamp can be a pendant lamp or a floor lamp. The suspension lamp must be fixed and anchored to a structure, the classic version powered by electric current to be mounted must be connected to the electric current, and using energy saving bulbs, consumption is certainly reduced. In the case of garden lamps, the problem of insects that are attracted by light must always be kept in mind. To solve this somewhat annoying problem, you can use either the use of lemongrass which does not annoy because it does not have an unpleasant smell, or you must buy lamps that emit a particular light that can keep insects away.
From the most considered only a useful element, garden lamps are to be considered instead a part of the garden furniture, to be well positioned and chosen, also according to the style of the garden itself and the house.
Garden lamps commonly illuminate short paths or access paths to the house and garage; there are various shapes and styles, from the most classic ones reminiscent of the lampposts of past centuries, to the most avant-garde in terms of shapes and colors.
In fact, garden lamps are a very useful element in our green space. By choosing them, we can also consider which style we like or which suits our home.
Solar powered lamps
Garden lamps, both suspension and floor lamps, can also be powered by solar energy: it is the heat of the sun's rays that allows them to be switched on. They are available in all shapes and sizes and are very inexpensive as they only deal with the cost of the lamp and there is no need to consider the cost of energy to power it. Many believe that solar powered outdoor lamps produce a low amount of light, but this is not the case at all. Obviously a small lamp may not be able to illuminate a dining area. They are mainly made of plastic and are quite resistant, they are easily cleaned and can be left outside even during the winter. They last for a long time and their cost depends on the size.
In a garden of any size it is always advisable to place light points, essential for illuminating the access ways to the home, but also for creating suggestive light points, in the shaded areas of the garden, or near particularly decorative trees or shrubs ; it is not always possible to reach all parts of the garden with the home's electrical system, in these cases it is possible to use solar-powered lamps; in this way we will have the right lighting without the need for cables or manholes.
Solar-powered lamps simply need to be hung on a support, or to be buried, therefore the panel they are equipped with stores energy during the day, to release it at night, illuminating until the following day.
This type of lamps are easy to use, and are generally produced specifically for the garden, therefore they are resistant to weather and weather.
