Hanging and pendant mounted LED exterior fixtures hang from above, whether a ceiling or a pergola or other landscape structure (even the branch of a tree!). All our fixtures are rated to be weather proof so they can be exposed to the elements either all the way out in the garden or semi-exposed under a patio or porch roof. You'll have the piece of mind knowing that even if the wind and rain get blown in from the wrong direction you won't have to worry about the safety of your fixtures if they are caught in a storm.
