Make Your Garden Shine With B&M's Solar Lighting Range

12 April 2021


Spring is a time of renewal in the natural world, and it’s as good a time as any for bringing your garden to life and showing it in its best light.

If you prepared well enough and planted your spring bulbs at the right time, your garden should be blooming with daffodils, tulips, bluebells and crocuses. But what about your garden décor?

In this article we’ll show you how you can revive your garden and brighten up your outdoor space, with these simple solar lighting solutions:

  • Solar Posts That Have an Inviting Impact
  • Solar String Lights to Make Your Garden Cosy
  • Solar Decorative Ornaments That Really Shine

Solar Posts to Make Your Garden More Inviting

Picture the scene: it’s been a beautiful day, that barbecue smell is still lingering in the air and the sun is just starting to disappear. It’s still warm and though the sun is about to set, the lights dotted around your garden begin to twinkle into life.

Solar post and stake lights make any garden look magical in twilight and they’re especially great at first impressions. As your guests arrive for an evening of fun, lead them down your garden path our Bali Design Post Lights or Morocco Dancing Flame Post Lights. They’ll really wow your guests set either side of pathways and along borders.


B&M Top Tip: if you’re really looking to get the party started, why not try our Disco Effect Post Light?

Solar String Lights to Make Your Garden Cosy

With a good mix of solar lights you can really transform any size garden or yard into a tranquil and relaxing space. In the warmer months your garden is an extension of your living space, so you should put as much love into it as you would your living room or bedroom.

Whether it’s a simple set of Eveready LED String Lights to drape along your fencing or trellis, or our Mason & Jones LED Curtain Lights in Warm White, hung from a gazebo or against the wall of your house, you’ll be sure to make an impact.

Or why not try something a bit more rustic with our Soft Sea 3m Rope Effect Solar String Lights? They look great wrapped around a tree or planter! Or for a festival feel, try our Solar Light Bulb String Lights in a pack of 10. It might be as close to Glastonbury as you get for some time!

Solar Decorative Ornaments That Really Shine

Lanterns are the kind of stylish garden ornament that makes a huge impact for minimal effort. Our Morocco Solar Lantern can be hung up to give trees an extra lease of life at night time (and it matches our Morocco Dancing Flame Post Lights!) while the Soft Sea Teardrop Solar Table Lantern is perfect for outdoor dining tables.

And if you want to add something special amongst your bushes and foliage (while turning up the dial on your garden’s zen vibes) our Buddha Head with Solar Lights is the perfect decorative garden ornament.
