After all the thought, time, and money that you invest in your gardens it doesn’t make sense to only see them during the day. Night brings an entirely new and beautiful perspective to your landscape with exterior lighting.
Here are some great ways to take advantage of the new trends:
- LED and low voltage, economical landscape lighting can change a patio or deck into a conversation area where you can see as if it’s daytime. Small lights under the bushes, illuminated pathways and stair riser lights also add to the safety of your outdoor areas, as well as the beauty. String lights, pendant lights and lanterns can create magic overhead.
- Your large trees are your most fascinating shapes; up lighting their trunks makes deep, dramatic shadows. Down lighting from high up in a tree suggests the effect of moonlight.
- Special effects can be used in water features, sculptures, pillars, and pergolas to create ambiance and warmth. Every garden has unique shapes to illuminate; ornamental trees or spiky plants create their own excitement when lit.
