Bollards, Spikes and Post Lights

Garden Lights, Bollard Lights and Post Lights

Bollard lights (also known as garden lights or post lights) are outdoor lighting fixtures that look like short posts mounted in the ground. They are typically used to illuminate paths, steps, gardens, parking lots, boardwalks and entrances. They are designed to withstand harsh weather conditions.

Tips on garden lights, bollard lights and post lights:

  • Garden lights are perfect to create a beautiful effect.
  • Do not place bollards too close together or in a straight line - this can create an aircraft runway effect.
  • You can use bollards to illuminate steps for safety as well as an attractive method of playing with shadows to enhance your landscape.
  • Putting bollard lights next to water features is a great way to make them come to life.
  • Positioning bollard lights next to interesting surfaces can bring out the texture of tree bark, walls, and other objects.
  • Don't over do it - a bit of light goes a long way at night.
  • Install a timer to turn off the bollards during the day.
