If you have lined your sidewalk with outdoor lighting then you already know the beauty it adds to the curb appeal of your home at night. Garden lighting can do the same thing for your backyard, in addition to the added security aspects it lends. Creating highlights for shrubbery and around your patio not to mention focused lighting on ornamental trees can bring out a whole new look to your landscape that you have never enjoyed in the evening hours before. There is a lighting option for just about any situation that you can come up with, so let’s explore them.
Trees can be used as a backdrop for focused lighting which creates an outside night-light that is something reminiscent of a tropical outdoor nightclub. Using varied light colors, it can create a whimsical party mood for entertaining friends and family. If you tire of the current colors you have installed, then a trip to the local lighting store will reveal even more choices to revitalize your themed garden lights. These lights are usually a little more heavy duty than most and may require professional installation by an electrician and landscaping company.
Garden Lighting For Entertainment & Other Purposes
Home garden lighting can create an entertaining contrast against a bed full of flowers. You can place the lights a little bit below and behind the blooms to give off a favoring aura about your flowers. These lights are usually smaller, and a good option to look at is of the solar variety. Usually if the day has been sunny, they will glow all night long with out a problem. Solar also does not require you to run underground electrical wiring, and saves you hundreds of dollars in installation costs. In addition, you can run LED flexible tube lighting around the edges of your flowerbeds to create a dramatic outlined effect.
Garden light is not for entertainment purposes only; it helps you guide your way through the backyard at night and prevents you from tripping and or falling. Security is another reason to install the electric gems. The more light you have around your house the more likely a burglar is going to move on to the next home so they can avoid exposure and risk going to prison.
Solar garden lights are becoming more effective and are being produced at a lower cost today. Allowing the average homeowner the experience of what only the wealthy could afford just a few years ago. Of course, the only drawback to this system is that if you have dark rainy days you will not have the garden lights working at night.
