As the clouds part and the sun threatens to shine, here at JJB Electrical, we can already hear the rattle of barbeques and kiddy pools being pulled from garages across Cuffley. 

It’s a sound we love to hear, and it is also around the time when we get our outside sockets and outside lighting at the ready, because we know it’s electricity and light that allows those Summertime gatherings to last from morning to night. If you’re looking for inspiration on how to put your outdoor lighting and sockets to good use, we’ve got just what you need below:

Why Outdoor Lighting & Sockets are a Must This Summer

Gardening Tools 

With all that extra sunshine, your garden is going to be in full bloom. To keep things in check and looking lush and leafy rather than overgrown, you likely have an army of hedge trimmers, lawnmowers, garden shredders, and beyond at the ready.  

To make life easier for you and your troops, an external power point is in order. We have just the waterproof external sockets you need to meet all your power tool needs, and we’ll install them for you too!

Outdoor Cooking 

It’s not a sunny day in Cuffley if the irresistible scent of barbequed goodies isn’t wafting through the air. We can install outside sockets so that you won’t need to untangle socket adapters or trip over pesky wires so that you can whip up a feast without breaking a sweat. 


The Summertime is made for leisure. From music in the afternoon to a cozy patio heater in the evening, you’ll never have to take the party indoors if you have outdoor sockets and lighting. 

Outside Lighting 

If you plan on making your garden glow this Summer, outside lighting is exactly what you need. Fortunately for you, there are plenty of outdoor lighting styles to suit every home. Soffit lights that beautifully line the roofline of your home are right on trend, while LED light fixtures are the epitome of contemporary exterior design style. However, no matter your vision, we have a lighting electrician that can help you to achieve it.

Cleaning Tools

Since we spend more time outside on sunny Summer days, it’s the perfect time to spruce up our gardens and keep them looking pristine. For this, the help of patio and pressure washers are always welcome, alongside other handy garden cleaning tools. However, most of them feature relatively small leads, making powering them from inside the house an inconvenience. Instead, do yourself a favour and install outdoor sockets to help you keep your garden in tip-top shape.
