The days of looking at Watts are LONG OVER!

You should be looking purely at lumens.

First of all, Wattage is a meaningless measure because LED lights give out illumination as vastly less Wattage.

So look at lumens.

Secondly, there is no answer to your question. It all depends on:

- How big your garden is

- How many other lights there will be

- How high the light is

- Colour temperature (human eye is more sensitive to cool colour temperatures)

- Beam angle
