Questions & Answers

How much does it cost to run a lamp post in your garden?

Typically, if running an energy efficient 6watt LED bulb for 10 hours per day, the running cost would be approximately £2.65 per year. 

Do I require planning permission to install a Lamp Post in my garden?

Generally this lamp post would be classed as a 'minor domestic light fitting' and would not require planning permission. Generally speaking, lamp posts are designed to deflect light downwards in order to avoid neighbour disturbance. Where lamp posts are fitted with PIR motion detectors, it's important to make sure they are not continuously triggered by bushes or trees which may cause nuisance.  Where in doubt, just contact your local planning office. 

Does this lamp post have to be attached to mains electricity?

Yes this lamp post is designed to be connected to a mains supply which is normally run via armoured cable by an electrician. The installation process is very straight forward for any trades person. 

Can I not use solar powererd bulb?

Whilst many people have converted the lantern to run from a solar panel and bulb combination, you typically find that these solar LEDs struggle to maintain light output throughout the winter months (where the days are shorter and darker). From extensive testing, we have found that during the winter the bulb will only be sufficiently charged to output light for around 6 continuous hours. 

When placing multiple lamp posts in my garden how should they be spaced?

Typically using a 60watt warm white bulb, a series of 7ft 5inch lamp posts will be spaced between 10-20metres apart depending on the lux level which is to be achieved. Once positioned a higher or lower output bulb could be used to increase or decrease light levels. Your electrician will be able to suggest the maximum output bulb which could be used.  Where larger posts are used for extended driveways spacing can increase to as much as 30-40metres. 

Does this lamp post require a base when positioning in a flower bed?

Yes this lamp post does require a concrete base. Depending on location and ground type the base size is normally between 12-24 inches cubed. 

Who installs garden lamp posts?

Most electricians will complete both the base and the electrical work. 

Can I use the lamp post with hanging planters?

Hanging basket brackets are available upon request. We recommend fixing the brackets using good guage nut and bolts directly through the post. 

Is it possible to paint the lamp posts custom colours?

Yes, the lamp posts are readily available in white or british racing green. Personalised colours are available upon request.

Are matching porch lights available?

Yes, please see the related products section on this page.
