In order to undertake a successful lighting project for your newly acquired house it’s crucial that you consult the services of a professional gardening designer or architect in order to draft a plan for your lighting endeavor that will ensure the lights you install add value to the entire garden space. There are various lighting fixtures that once installed will turn your garden into the eighth wonder of the world and guests will brave the cold just to enjoy the serenity and ambience provided by your garden light fixtures.
Ambient lighting: This form of lighting is loved for the beauty and ambience it projects. These lighting fixtures are able to set the right mood to convey feelings of warmth and relaxation outdoors.
Up lighters: This lighting fixture projects light from below. The light is situated above the ground and illuminates light from below thus creating beautiful diagonal angles.
Down lighters: This is lighting that is installed pointing downwards. These lights are used to illuminate and emphasis features or objects of beauty for example paintings, glassware, antiques e.t.c
Mirroring: If your house has a large pool of water body for example a swimming pool or a fountain, this form of lighting is achieved by emphasizing a feature on the extreme end of the water body so that its image is reflected in the dark, still water surface when seen from a distance.
Moonlighting: This is a beautiful technique achieved by placing light fixtures within branches of a large tree or by attaching a light fixture to a nearby wall that shines through the branches. This technique casts distinctive and dazzling shadows.
Grazing: This form of lighting is not only spectacular but it will turn your garden into a space that is out of this planet. These are lights that are positioned at an acute angle close to the surface to emphasis its texture by casting strong shadows.
Path lighting: This form of lighting is best achieved by installing down lighters in the form of posts that are evenly spaced out or spotlights that light large sections of the garden. This ensures that lighting is natural and soft. It’s not advisable to line up small up lighters in your pathway because it will end up looking like an airstrip.
Security lighting: Spotlights or floodlights are the best options for security lighting because they illuminate large tracks of space. They can also be aimed at specific directions for example a fence or wall. This lighting tends to scare away robbers or night prowlers.
These lighting ideas once employed will guarantee that you enjoy the beauty of your garden all night long.
