Awesome Arduino Garden Lights

Have you ever thought it would be cool to nicely light up your garden? With this cool project from Steve8428 you can use addressable RGB LEDs to create a spectacular, dynamic garden lighting display.  The lights are made out of pipe off cuts and controlled by an Arduino. This is quite a basic project but that doesn’t mean that the result isn’t impressive!

Garden Lights

You could easily integrate this lighting system into an existing home automation system and change the mood of your garden from your phone or even automatically based on the time of year. If you can’t wait to get started sprucing up your garden you can check out the project at the following link.

If you are looking for some addressable RGB LEDs to use in this project check out the FreePixel.


This is a colour LED with a brain! Includes a bright WS2812B addressable RGB LED. This smart module can be daisy-chained, so you can connect a number of these together in a string and drive each of the module colours individually from your microcontroller. To find out more or to order check out the following link.
