Use a mixture of the following effects to create your theme . . .
- Light one or two focal points e.g. Uplight a substantial tree that
can be viewed from any direction this may simply be enough to give the
night time ambience you desire.
- Spotlighting, highlight selected garden features such as water
features and sculptures or by running a spot light across a textural
surface also know as shadowing you can show the beautiful texture of a
stone wall or garden fencing.
- Silhouetting is an interesting technique where by lighting behind trees
and shrubs can show interesting branch structures which is dynamic when
silhouetted against a wall.
- To display larger areas and soften the shadows use a cross lighting
technique by illuminating the area from two or more fixtures.
LED technology fixtures and lamps are perfect for landscaping as
they consume less power and where lighting is installed in hard to
access nooks and crannies the time between maintenance is many years.
Many of the Superlux landscape fixtures and lamps are available in
White, Green or Blue. Green is perfect for highlighting foliage, blue
for highlighting water and white for just about anywhere.
Bollard lighting is great for lighting along garden pathways and
flood lights are perfect for large entertainment areas, tennis courts
etc. Use In ground lighting and Shielded/ directional spot lighting
where the lighting effect is to be seen but the light fixture its self
is not to be seen.
And most of all have fun, landscape lighting can be done subtly or just simply go mad!
