Outdoor Garden Lights Australia | Elluminate Lighting


When the weather starts to warm up, we can’t help but think about spending more time outside. After all, we have been cooped up inside for months now! But bringing your outdoor space back to life doesn’t have to be costly or difficult. In fact, reviving your outdoor area with some new garden lighting can re-vamp the space with minimal effort on your part. In this blog post, you’ll discover the ultimate spring garden lighting guide that will help you transform your outdoor space in no time! So keep reading for our quick and easy tips, and save some money while you’re at it!


Step 1: Start with a clean space


Before you can begin transforming your outdoor space, you first need to make sure it’s in good shape. If your outdoor space has fallen into a bit of disarray over the winter months, this is the perfect time to get started on a spring clean-up. This will give you an opportunity to really assess the condition of your outdoor area and identify any spots that could use a bit of attention.

Start by cleaning up any messes that may have accumulated over the winter months. Next, do a quick spruce-up of your patio and deck. It’s time to pull out the old tool kit and repair any broken boards. Make sure to remove any weeds that may have grown during the wet weather.

Pro tip: if you have an outdoor deck or patio, make sure to use paint that is UV-protected to prevent damage from the sun’s UV rays. Bunnings has a range of affordable UV-protected paint and often offers samples for you to test before committing.


Step 2: Add soft & inviting garden lighting


Next, focus on the lighting in your outdoor space. There are a few important things to keep in mind when selecting garden lighting:

  1. First, your outdoor lights should be rated for outdoor use.
  2. Next, you’ll want to select fixtures that are constructed of weatherproof materials to protect them from extreme temperatures and rain (especially in Australia!).
  3. Finally, choose outdoor lighting fixtures with a soft, warm glow to create a cozy and inviting feel.

Garden spotlights are designed to individually illuminate garden shrubs, trees and ornaments, creating an intriguing yet relaxed atmosphere. Good garden spotlights should come with a garden stake for easy mounting and installation.

Pro tip: Opt for warm white globes, as this is a timeless look that won’t go out of style, unlike coloured globes. We also find that warm white has the most inviting vibe. Bunnings has a range of affordable warm white garden lighting options.


Step 3: Light up the path and create visual separation


Now, think about how light travels through your outdoor space. Where do you need more light and where do you want to add visual separation? Your path or walkway is a great place to start.

If you’re worried about safety, consider adding path lights that will help guide your way, minimising the risk of falls. Walkway lights are typically low voltage, which means they will draw less power from your outlet and are much safer to walk around compared to higher voltage lights. This is also a smart way to create a visual separation between the path and garden areas.

Pro tip: Outdoor Bollard lights are perfect for lining your pathway, driveway and garden area. Their modern, sleek appearance creates a sophisticated look. You can find a range of affordable bollard lights at Bunnings.


Step 4: Brighten up your deck


Your next consideration is your deck area. Deck lights are a great way to add separate areas to your deck and can be placed on either side of your seating area to help create an inviting vibe. If you’re adding lights to your deck, you’ll want to make sure you select low-voltage lighting for safety and power savings.

Pro tip: Elluminate’s 12V Garden Deck Lights are a great value, safe option and are available at Bunnings. Plus, these Deck Lights can be used in your garden, to light up structural features and to create visual separation for paths and garden beds. There are so many fun ways to utilise Elluminate’s Deck Lights.


Step 5: Add smart garden lights


Next, you may want to consider adding a smart garden light system. Having a smart system means less stress for you. For Elluminate’s garden lights, you can program and control your lighting system using Bluetooth technology from your smartphone or tablet device.

You’ll just need to download the Elluminate app from the App Store or Google Play and enjoy the benefits of your fully automated system. With the app you can:

  • Manually turn your lights on and off.
  • Set automatic light sensor.
  • Set on/off daily timer function.
  • Control and add multiple Bluetooth controllers to allow greater flexibility (for example, separate your front garden from your back garden).

Pro tip: With a daily timer function, a smart garden light system should reduce your power consumption, meaning lower power bills!
