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 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.
Oriental, nautical, arts & craft and traditional are just a few of the types of outdoor post lanterns available online, with glass styles offered in a variety of colors, finishes and thicknesses. Generally, your lamp will range from 1 to 2 feet in height, with a post starting at lengths of 3 to 4 feet and longer. Posts and lamps can be purchased separately on many online websites, with vivid color photographs and intricate detailing to make decision-making, ordering and shipping easy.
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.
