BLT Direct reveals simple tricks to brighten gardens for summer evenings

The lighting experts, BLT Direct are offering a range of useful tricks to help brighten gardens and extend the time spent outdoors once the sun sets this summer.

As the warmer weather continues across the UK, many people are gathering together for garden parties, BBQs and outdoor celebrations but often find themselves retreating indoors as soon as the sun goes down.

One such lighting solution is BLT Direct’s wide range of decking lights that create an ambient glow whilst offering markers of where to step when navigating on decked areas in the dark. Available in five different colours, not only do these easy to install lights brighten a garden party or BBQ, but they also help safeguard against trips and tumbles.

From solar light posts, table decorations to light fittings that can be fixed to external walls, their extensive range is idea for those that want to make the most of their garden this summer and protect the natural environment.
