If you were to ask several landscapers what their favourite time of the day was for sitting in their garden, many would reply that it is after dark. Once the sun has gone down, and the temperature has dropped, there can be few more relaxing and enjoyable places to unwind at the end of the day, than sitting in a beautiful garden that has been subject to an awesome landscaping design.
Now, assuming you like that idea, but also do not plan to sit in complete darkness, your garden is going to need some lighting. You might simply install a small floodlight on the wall of your house, but if you want some lighting to enhance the atmosphere within your landscaping then you need to think of alternative lighting options. To help you start considering some, with the help of a reputable landscaping company, we have 7 lighting ideas for you.
Lighting In Trees
One of the most obvious places within landscaping where you can have lighting is in the trees. There are several options which include a string of lights wrapped around the trunk, string lighting throughout the branches, lights hanging from the branches, and a floodlight pointing upward towards the tree. Colours can produce an excellent effect with the colours of the trees’ blossoms and leaves contrasting with the colours of the lights.
Festoon Overhead Lighting
Festoon bulbs are often associated with beach promenades, and in small-town squares but they can be equally effective for lighting within a garden. The size of garden you have or the area you wish to light will determine how many festoon bulbs you need. Once you have them, you can be connected between two points to light patio areas, pathways, and decking installed by deckingsydney.net.au.
