Recommendations for garden spotlights

I'm wanting to get some good quality garden spotlights to uplight a row of trees.  I have lots of power sockets, so am thinking a plug and play bundle with 6 spotlights is what I'd like.  Can anyone recommend a good brand or retailer who they think offer decent value for money (not necessarily the cheapest).

PS. Please let me know if you think there is a better option than spotlights/uplighters.

    If you have neighbours, I'd avoid them. 
    One man's spotlights are another man's light polution.

    Neighbour has his own spotlights.

    I'm really meaning uplighters rather than concentration camp style spotlights.
  • We've installed lights by Techmar this year and they've been great. They have lots of control options, we have some on a remote control and others on a timer/dusk sensor and they've been great. They use very little electricity and they're very bright with a nice warm colour to them too. They have another range called ludeco which is interchangeable in case you like those better.

    @heizentimezL6M-fmu your link is for lights in the USA. This is a UK site
  • If you need to buy solar fence lights, you can start your search in local stores such as hardware stores and department stores. You can also find them in Costco, Home Depot, Walmart, etc.
  • I agree. I am totally against lights being on at night unless actually needed. For a number of reasons such as light pollution in general, affect on wildlife , affecting sleep patterns etc etc.

    We had this discussion just recently. It is much better for wildlife, the environment and everyone in general if you avoid light pollution and rely on the moon and stars except where safety is involved.
