Often, outdoor post lanterns are desired for aesthetic purposes or accent lighting. If so, you may want to make sure it highlights focal points in your landscaping, providing a dramatic touch to outdoor seating areas, fountains or even statues. If the goal is to imitate moonlight or you want an ambient glow, you may choose a fixture with muted windowpanes or opaque panels. Solar lights are excellent choices for this type of lighting, as they offer a more natural glow, are inexpensive to maintain, and friendly to the environment. Sensors on the light figures turn on at dusk and off at dawn, but in order for them to recharge correctly, they must be placed in an area that will get a lot of sunlight for most effective use.
Homeowners who want to include a new outdoor lighting system should first make a list of what they wish to achieve through their lighting system. One thing to consider is whether or not you want to have lantern lighting at all times, or only when it is needed. If you only want it when needed then the aforementioned options of an infra-red system or a motion detector system are the best methods. You should also determine whether you want to create a specific atmosphere in your garden, around a seating area, on a porch, or a deck. There are limitless effects that can be created with the right outdoor lantern lighting system and lighting layers.
When you are planning your outdoor lantern lighting you should first consider how to shine more light on your outdoor room with less electricity. Particularly with outdoor lantern lighting it is important to verify the best possible angles from which to mount your outdoor lantern lighting. With this information you can determine the number of lights that you need, which outdoor lantern lighting system works best for your home, and where they should be mounted.
Installation of outdoor post lanterns is easier than you think, and can be done without the need for mixing a messy bag of concrete. Just make sure about 12 to 18 of the post is below the ground when you bury it and that you have placed rock around it to promote drainage away from the metal post to prevent rusting. For placement in colder areas, the bottom of the post should be deeper than the frost line so it remains stable during freezing. Allow a wide circle around the post with plenty of gravel. Make sure to plumb the post, and tamp generously. Before installation, check for the location of underground utilities to avoid an unfortunate incident!
