The third rule lighting
Lighting is another important element for outdoor living. Relaxed, soft lighting will help you to create a cozy atmosphere on long, hot summer evenings. You’ll also have to think about installing practical lighting as well, so you can see what you’re doing. A variety of wall lamps, stylish lanterns, candlesticks, and solar torches will let you create a comfortable environment that meets all your needs. Make sure you install adequate lighting near steps and pathways leading to the yard.
Since you’re here… we have a small favour to ask. More and more people want the Post than ever but advertising revenues across the media are falling fast. And unlike many news organisations, we haven’t put up a paywall – we want to keep our journalism as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help.
The Post’s independent, investigative journalism takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. With investigative reporting, we often don't know at the beginning how a story will unfold and how long it might take to uncover. This can mean it is costly – particularly as we often face legal threats that attempt to stop our reporting. But we remain committed to raising important questions and exposing wrongdoing. And we do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too.
If everyone who reads our reporting, who likes it, helps to support it, our future would be much more secure. For as little as NZ$5, you can support the Post – and it only takes a minute. Thank you.
