Garden Lights and Bollards

Bollard lights are outdoor lighting fixtures that look like short posts mounted in the ground.
Spike lights are just above ground level and have a very thin shaft. They are typically used to illuminate paths, steps, gardens, parking lots, boardwalks and entrances and are designed to withstand harsh weather conditions.

Tips on bollard lights and spike lights:

  • Bollards are perfect to create a beautiful effect.
  • Do not place bollards or spike lights 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 spike 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 lights during the day.

Materials:

  • Polycarbonate garden lights, spike lights and bollards are popular due to their lightweight yet hardwearing nature. Being UV stabilised increases their resistance to long term sun exposure.
  • Aluminium garden lights, spike lights and bollards offer a great midway point between Polycarbonate and stainless steel. Often powder coated to give a stylish dark finish, these look great in gardens or alongside pathways. These are suitable for most areas but for coastal locations you may want to consider marine-grade aluminium.
  • Stainless Steel garden lights, spike lights and bollards give a stylish to gardens and paths. Hard wearing and corrosion resistant these are suitable for most areas although coastal regions may want to consider a marine-grade stainless steel.
  • Copper garden lights, spike lights and bollards provide an interesting contrast of colours against garden foliage and outdoor constructions such as pathways and handrails. Copper should be avoided in Coastal areas due to the possibility of corrosion.
