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.
Since the most common use for outdoor lighting systems is to increase the level of safety around the home, adding lighting to the front of your home can help visitors and vehicles move safely. Lighting at the front of your home can be combined with porch lighting to create a relaxing outdoor climate. When planning the security of your outdoor lantern lighting systems, you can consider infra-red devices which will turn on lights upon sensing a physical presence. This is a viable method for deterring intruders, particularly when combined with a video recording system. This method will offer a higher degree of safety without incurring additional charges for electricity consumption that is associated with having outdoor lights on at all hours of the night. Combing security measures with general garden lighting is a great way to create an inviting space in your garden with the protection you and your family deserves.
The style of the outdoor lighting should be as natural as possible to complement the design of the whole space. Go for models with gentler yet organic designs in warm earthly colors such as brown and green. The rustic lights in the form of lanterns with mock wooden frames are ideal for every yard.
In the Victorian era, gas lanterns were the staple, with a traditional Hexagonal shape and forged in bronze or copper. In modern times, many lanterns are still made of copper or brass, some with lacquer coating, or you can get the same look in a cost-effective, powder coated, lightweight aluminum, for a hard-wearing finish.
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!
