3 steps to a winning backyard
9 October 2017
In this week’s Block backyard reveals, the judges were quick to mention the importance of zoning an outdoor space to complement versatile family living. Other than Josh & Elyse, whose winning garden cleverly used our LEDlux Marine LED Up/Down exterior lights to zone the pool area, the Blockheads missed an opportunity to use exterior lighting to its best advantage.
Even if you’re a reno rookie, our DIY Quick Connect system can transform any exterior - be it a lush garden or courtyard - into an entertainer’s oasis.
Step 1. The key to great lighting design is in the planning. Think about which features or areas in your garden you’d like to highlight, such as pathways, shrubbery, trees, BBQ area or deck.
Step 2. Shop the extensive Quick Connect range for a selection of lighting. Step and deck lights define the entertaining spaces and provide much needed light when you’re moving around at night. Install spike spots in and around greenery and bollards along pathways to create ambience, and get creative with ribbon lighting under benches.
Step 3. Complete your customised garden lighting design with our easy-to-install wiring kits and accessories. You can place the lights anywhere and hide the cables underneath stones, dirt or whatever is in your garden. No power supply in your garden? No problem. Our DIY Solar Cell Solar Garden Power Cell Kit is the ideal partner for the Quick Connect System.
