Garden ponds can often be over looked once the sun goes down, but with a few simple accessories your pond will transform your garden into an incredibly atmospheric space.
The first accessory to consider adding, if you have not already done so, would be some pond lighting. There are a lot of different ways to light your pond and water features. Underwater lights will highlight your fish swimming, external spotlights will highlight features around your pond such as waterfalls and fountains while contemporary light designs can become a feature themselves.

Submersible pond lights are fantastic for highlighting your fish swimming at night. With the PondXpert Brightpond and Pondolight light sets, you can change the colour of the lights with the complimentary coloured light filters (red, green, blue or orange). If you’d like to disguise your submersible pond lights then the PondXpert Triple Rock Lights set is cased in a realistic stone effect casting and will blend into your pond environment.
Lighting Your Water Feature

The PondXpert Solar Sublight can be used in or out of the pond and sits in an adjustable cradle so can direct light to any feature you may wish to illuminate.
