Use smart lighting to highlight your hard work
When the work outdoors is done, you can relax and unwind in your own personal oasis. To set the mood, Philips has launched a number of new smart lights in its Hue range, which all work with Apple’s HomeKit (with the aid of the Hue Bridge, approx $50). The multi-colored Calla ($129.99) bollard light can be used to illuminate paths. And you can dot the Lily spotlights ($279.99 for three) around your garden for some dramatic lighting to highlight your eye-catching flower beds. There are also three wall luminaries — Inara, Lucca, and Ludare — on offer (from $49.99). The new Hue lights will be available in July.
