If you want to get more use out of your garden, lighting it properly will help you to do so. With the right lights, you will be able to continue to cook, eat, read and watch TV outdoors long after the sun has gone down. Plus, the kids will be able to continue to play in the garden for longer, after school. The cost of garden lighting fixtures has come down quite a bit, as has the cost of running them once they are installed. In fact, if you choose the right type of lights, they can literally cost you very little to run.
