We can probably all agree that summer didn’t bring the weather we’d hoped for and now, with autumn firmly here, many of us can’t bear to face the winter months. So, at uSwitch we’ve decided to look forward to next summer instead of facing up to the reality of the chilly days ahead.

Here’s our top five garden products for next summer…

Solar Mate Secure 1 security light

Used for security but also as an on/off light when you go into the garden at night. It has three double sized LEDs so it’s capable of flooding an area of 16smq with light.

Murano solar garden globes (available in midnight, aqua, sunset or terra)

These stunning solar lights will make your garden even prettier in the summer months. With their beautiful design, the luminescent crystal and state-of-the-art white LED solar light appears to float in the air. We’ll be dotting these around our flowerbeds and ponds as soon as soon as spring hits -delightful.

POWERplus Dragonfly

 There’s nothing better than sitting in the garden on a warm summer’s evening and chatting to friends over a bottle of wine. You might light few candles too, but these have to be replaced and can often leave wax over your best patio table. With the POWERplus Dragonfly you can get the pleasure of a candle but the hassle- free convenience of a solar light – it mimics a candle; flickering under the moonlight after being powered by the sun.

Venetian solar garden lights

These solar garden lights are perfect for lighting up the garden path or drive. Made with a stainless steel body and shatter-proof glass, they’re durable enough to keep outside and their solar panels will last for two years.
