The simplest form of a lantern, and most likely the first, is the candle lantern. A candle is placed in a metal box with glass sides and an open top. We all know of the kerosene lantern, also referred to as a hurricane lantern. This type lantern was commonly used from the 19th century into the middle of the 20th century. This lantern, or a version of, is still used by campers and other outdoorsmen. The kerosene lantern is ruggedly built for portability. The metal chimney and side tubes supports the glass globe and enhance the draft of air reaching the flame. Horse drawn carriages, railroad cars and ships were other early uses of the kerosene lantern.
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.
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.
