Step light


By elless


This light was originally installed in our old patio after we removed a pond. The electrics were already there and I wanted to make use of them.
I found the iron grill in a re-claimation yard and OH made a reinforced concrete box to fit the grill and sunk it in the hole where the pond was, with the light inside, then he replaced the patio around it. The bottom of the light box had about 6 inches of gravel for drainage.
When we had the patio renewed recently I got the landscaper to incorporate the light into the step and I’m very pleased with the result.

Very clever idea!

That will look wonderful when you are out in the garden enjoying a glass of wine (or hot chocolate...) at dusk or later!
