Garden spotlights are a lighting system generally used to create a soft light, as it, in the classic version, spreads from the bottom up. Generally this term also indicates the wall spotlight that is fixed on a support base and in this case the light diffusion occurs from top to bottom. In any case, the garden spotlight cannot be considered a primary lighting source, since the intensity of the light emitted is rather low, as the spotlight was designed to be placed in an area of the garden in order to emphasize it and highlight it thanks to the light.
Garden spotlights are used to create a path along an avenue, to emphasize a particular area of the garden where there are very rare plant species or to delimit the edge of a swimming pool. According to the use that will be made of it, the spotlight is able to produce different lighting. In the case of the avenue, it will have the function of marking the steps, so it will not be a question of having a real lighting but simply a path formed by many small lighthouses. The light emitted by each lighthouse is of low intensity, therefore it will be necessary to consider the minimum distance that must exist between one element and another. A particular area of the garden where rather rare plant species are planted becomes a corner to be made visible and admirable even during the night. The spotlight can be used to surround the entire area and thus immediately capture the attention of those who visit the garden. The most classic use is certainly that referred to the delimitation of the edge of a swimming pool, as, in addition to performing an aesthetically very interesting function to highlight the shape of the pool itself, it also acts as a signal to warn that there is there is a swimming pool. Everyone can freely insert spotlights in their garden, but the result can certainly be much more interesting and balanced if they are arranged in an organized way and following an established principle, which is to create a light that can illuminate a space that is wants to make it particularly visible in the evening.

It is advisable to place the solar spotlight in a spot in the garden where it is obviously not covered by foliage, as this would prevent the solar panel from capturing the sun’s rays properly.
