Enhance The Beauty Of Backyard Pond With Lights

A pool in the court at the back of your house not just provides you with a place to relax but also gives you a beautiful and nice look to it. This phenomenon dims down with the downing of the sun.

With some pond lighting, the area will stand out and continue to be a source of pride no matter what the time of day. The article below familiarizes some steps to arrange the lights in the pond.

The tools you might need while arranging the lights in the pond are floating solar pond lights, floating lighted pond fountain, electric or solar, underwater pond light with transformer and electricity source.

Having them all, you can carry on with the project. Float solar lights on the pond surface for a gently moving light display that needs no electrical connection, timers, or switches. Floating lights can be left to move freely. Using floating solar lights illuminates the surface of the water at night with just the power of the sun.

Market provides us a variety of clear and colored lights in various sizes, shapes and also in the shape of water lily and other aquatic plants. These lights are grouped like artificial plants or their attachments to lit up in the middle of the pond.

Place a floating lighted fountain in the center or deepest part of the pond for the double benefit of a light show with aeration. Fountains can give a variety of spray and light shows, come with control panels, timers, and cords, and will need an electric source and an anchor. Solar floating lighted fountains are a bit more expensive but worth the time-saving installation effort that is saved, as well as the electricity.

Install underwater pond lights around the edge of the pond just under the water for a more dramatic effect. Space lights one to three feet apart, depending on how much light is desired. Underwater lights require a fixture for the light, and a cable, plus a transformer and something to anchor the light in the pond, usually a cement weight or a stake secured well into the earth.

In addition to this, you would also require an outdoor GFCI receptacle to power the electrical lights you have installed in the pond. Make sure, you secure the GFCI outlet in a weatherproof cover.
