Transform your garden into a magical setting for entertaining with pretty and sparkly outdoor lighting.

Light up your outdoors

Whether you're planning an elegant dinner or a full-blown Christmas extravaganza, there are many clever ways to bring your garden to life with lighting – especially during the festive season. With low voltage, battery or solar-powered options available, the possibilities are endless. When the sun goes down, watch the night light up!

Deck out the cubby

A timber cubby house can look sensational when decked out with solar lights. Add Aussie flavour with a cute menagerie.

Safety tip: While solar lights are an easy D.I.Y. addition, any hardwired electrical fixtures must be installed by a qualified electrician.

Health & Safety

Please make sure you use all equipment appropriately and safely when following the advice in these D.I.Y. videos. You need to be familiar with how to use equipment safely and follow the instructions that came with the equipment. If you are unsure, you may feel it is safest to consult an expert, such as the manufacturer or an expert Bunnings Team Member.

Grave health hazards are linked to asbestos, which may be in homes built up to 1990. Health hazards may result from exposure to lead-based paints in older materials and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer. You can also use a simple test kit from Bunnings to indicate the presence of lead-based paint.
