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!
With proper outdoor lighting you can enjoy the safety and security that lighting has to offer with the comfort of knowing that you and neighbors can see where they are walking, and the additional touch of class and elegance that accompanies a well-lit home exterior. The outdoor lantern lighting of your choosing should be made out of modern materials that are durable and inexpensive. Adequate lighting which shines light upon the most important facets of your yard is responsible for additional security. An outdoor lantern lighting system can be a motion detector system or a passive infra-red system.
When considering outdoor post lanterns for your home, the first thing you want to ask yourself is, what are you lighting? This will help determine the size of your outdoor post lanterns and whether you want the beams to face up, down or spread out for maximum lighting coverage. It will also help narrow your choices if you are trying to match other lighting or home design features such as fences, outdoor furniture, or nearby structures.
The good news is that the styles today are much more varied than they were in the days of David Copperfield. While old world styles are still very popular, modern designs have taken significant creative leaps, accommodating every home and garden scenario.
Just as there are limitless effects, there are limitless designs and styles. Your outdoor lighting can be an antique design, an ornate design, or a vintage design which seamlessly blends the frayed garden design that is created by your blossoming flowers, shrubs, and trees. An old world atmosphere can be created by integrating a vintage outdoor lantern lighting system, conducive to relaxation during any season. With modern outdoor lighting designs, your yard can be emphasized as a summer location for sun-bathing or an evening location for conversation by lamp-light.
