Remember too that by adding exterior lighting to your garden at night you’re not trying to emulate the beauty and colours of the garden as they appear in daylight. Instead, you’re attempting to bring into focus a ’different’ garden. By this we mean there will be far more contrasts and a mix of both shadowed silhouettes and highlighted features. In this way, your garden becomes more of a mysterious place at night.
Incidentally, to get what lighting experts refer to as a ’moonlighting’ effect, hang the lights around 30 ft high and just above the lower branches of a tree. This way the light will filter down through the leaves on the lower branches, creating a pattern of light and shadows.
Have a flat vertical surface in your garden or other outdoor area? This can be more than just a visual feature – it can be the perfect place to install lighting. You’ll discover a host of different styles out there, from hanging lanterns that mount to the wall to disc shaped lights, squares, swivel lights, spotlights and more. Many of these use LED bulbs for longer life and lower power consumption, but you can also find halogen bulbs if you prefer something more conventional.
Patio lighting ensures that you have plenty of illumination in your outdoor seating and dining area. Whether you’re relaxing with your preferred libation after a long day at the office or hosting a garden party, you’ll definitely need light once the sun sets.
