If you have put forth the effort to create an impressive outdoor garden, you should also attend to its lighting needs. In addition to practical benefits like improved safety, garden lights can also accentuate your garden’s standout elements. As evening falls, a well-curated garden will become a different environment entirely. Garden lighting lets you enjoy everything that your garden has to offer!
Accentuate Standout Elements
Garden lights draw attention to your garden’s best elements, and can create unique effects when correctly installed. For example, lighting on a tree can create a dappled effect when applied to the canopy. Subtle lighting can also accentuate sculptures or water elements, and will create a unique impact through careful installation.
Safety and Convenience
Wandering through a garden in the dark simply isn’t safe. In the absence of lighting, safety concerns would make you actually avoid your garden after nightfall. Landscape lighting can create an invitingly ambient atmosphere that draws you and your visitors to the garden. It can also illuminate pathways and potential hazards to ensure safe enjoyment.
A well-lit property will help deter thieves and trespassers. If your garden represents a substantial portion of your property, you should absolutely have it lit for security. Gardens without lighting can become refuges for trespassers to observe your home. With proper lighting, you can rest easy in the knowledge that your garden remains a safe haven.
