How do you make the most of your garden? It all starts with garden lighting. Enjoy not one, but two gardens. You will get a literal difference of night and day by lighting in a stylish way.

We have listed some useful garden lighting tips for you to make the most of your garden.

Connecting ground cables yourself

Installing garden lighting in your garden is a fun job, but requires some preparation for the best results. Connecting a ground cable is the most important step to safely install your garden lighting. Connecting is not difficult and you can do this yourself, as long as you know how to do it and what to look out for. Do you still have the question: How do I connect a ground cable?

Connect more garden lighting to your system.

The garden lighting systems in our range are very flexible. You can easily add fixtures later on or move the current ones. You can simply connect additional fixtures to the existing ground cable. You can do this with the Easy-Lock of In-lite, for example. Would you like extra fixtures in a place where there is no ground cable yet? You can arrange this by creating a branch on the main cable. In-lite has the CC-2 connector, but other systems also offer the option of branching. Do take into account the maximum permitted load of the transformer and maximum length of the ground cable.

Do NOT combine different systems

Do you want to connect in-lite lighting to another brand's system or vice versa? We advise against it, to avoid malfunctions. It is important to use 1-brand products and not combine different brands. The products are precisely tuned to each other, which reduces the chance of interference. Make sure your transformer, ground cable and accessories are of the same brand as your garden lights. Combining different brands within a system can also affect the warranty.

Garden lighting in autumn

To keep the lovely warm summer evenings outside just a little bit longer you can use garden lighting. But you also want to enjoy your garden when the leaves are falling from the trees and the days are getting shorter. Garden lighting is essential when you come home or still want to sit outside on a day with more pleasant temperatures. You can use garden lighting all year round. Have you installed atmospheric garden lighting in the summer, but still have insufficient lighting along your garden paths and around the shed? You can easily expand your garden lighting system in autumn by adding a few new fixtures. Get started right away and make the most of your garden, even in autumn and winter.
