When the sun’s shining, it’s great to while away the hours in the garden. At night time, too, the great outdoors is the perfect place for late drinks and barbecues that go into the early hours.
No one wants to hang out in the dark, so it’s important to consider how you will light your garden when the sun goes down. Not only will this make it look great from outside your window, it will create an atmosphere that you and your family will want to retreat to night after night.
If you don’t know where to start with garden lights, here are five tips to consider:
Light your decking
Deck lighting is the ideal way to highlight one of your garden’s main features. In-ground lights can be fixed into the timber structure to make a communal space feel warm and welcoming.
Make shrubbery glow
If you’re proud of your plants, why not show them in the best light. Placing lighting in or around your shrubbery can make for a dynamic lighting experience, as emitted beams moves with the foliage.
Play with shadow
Keep a bit of mystery in your design by using as much shadow as you do light. This lets you hide sheds and other less attractive garden utilities, which in turn makes the features you do choose to illuminate even more stunning.
Think about bollards
The borders between your walkways and planted areas can be brought out with bollard lighting?or lovely spike lights. This indirect lighting solution casts beams towards the ground instead of up in the air, making it a subtle feature to your home. During the day, the aesthetic design of the post makes it an attractive addition to your garden.
Garden lighting is not all about keeping a natural look. Playing with various colours can have a great effect against both foliage and buildings.
