What is a Lamp Post?

House premises are the place for gardening, resting, and experimenting. A lot of house owners try out multiple design solutions for their land portions. Planting flowers or setting up a pond makes the grounds a unique and charming place for an evening rest in the family circle. However, staying out at dusk will be uncomfortable without proper lighting. Having a walk in a well-lit garden is much safer, but a lamp post is not there for functional purposes only, it also serves as an essential element of design. We have chosen 5 models of lamp posts with different power systems that will brighten up your premises.

We also advise you to check out the solar lights review focused on compact lights for home use. These lights can be used to illuminate the driveway, the garage spot, or the backyard. For those of you who often have late grill parties, the grill lights review will be useful in choosing proper lighting.

Paradise GL23716BK

Power-Saving Classics

The Paradise GL23716BK Lamp Post is best suited for classic gardens with hedges, lawns, and various flowerbeds. The lantern is transparent and has a sophisticated curved shape. For illuminating a larger area, more than one lamp post is required, as this model is equipped with a single lantern.

Solar panels are the main advantage of this lamp post. With four of them, it is possible to accumulate sufficient energy during the daytime to lighten the grounds for the whole night. The 12 LEDs provide 14 lumens of lighting. The lamp posts can be placed along the garden paths or a driveway, or used on the patio. The LEDs are turned on automatically at dusk, so there is no need to manually switch them on.

The sustainable aluminium post is weather-resistant and protected against rust and the elements. A lifetime warranty for this post is an excellent proof of its durability. Create a pleasant, well-lit atmosphere on your grounds and save a lot of electricity by installing the Paradise Lamp Post.
