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!
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.
You can have wall mounted lights if these are close to the house, but the patio umbrella lights are also a good idea. You can also have special tall light posts near these. If you want some of the decorations in your yard to be lighted then you can use the well lights.
Some of us are old enough to remember when lanterns were the primary(only) source of light, especially in rural areas before electricity was widely available. The lantern lit the way to the barn and down the path to that special little out house. A lantern can be classed as any portable lighting device used to light large areas. Lanterns are used in signaling, and widely used for camping.
The well lights are functional and beautiful - they are placed on the ground or under it so that they cannot be seen, but provide lighting you need to highlight trees or statues in your garden. The path lights might also be a good idea if you have a large yard, but they do not work for smaller ones. If you have a pond, do not miss to add special underwater pond lights to it - the landscape will become whimsical as if it has come out of a fairy tale.
