Pergolas can be more than just a stunning garden feature-they can also be a versatile part of your landscape. Pergola lighting can make the difference between a pergola being somewhere that you love to spend your time at night and somewhere that is a bit of a pain to use. When choosing pergola lighting, you will have to keep your budget in mind. This doesn’t only apply to the cost of the lights or the form of lighting itself but also the running costs. Look for lights that meet your initial budget but which won’t cost a fortune to run later. For example, electric lights look great but with the increasing cost of electricity, they can become quite expensive, especially if they don’t use energy efficient bulbs. A wood fireplace looks amazing and gives off gorgeous light but it can be quite expensive to source replacement wood. Also think about the cost of replacing the lights should they become damaged in weather.
And for popular choice, you can choose string pergola lighting. These outdoor string lighting can really add pinpoints of light to your pergola and you can drape, wind or string them through lattice work to augment the framework of the structure.
