Lighting

Lighting will extend the time you want to spend in the garden. We recommend planning the exterior lighting at the same time as the interior lighting because of electricity distribution and control switches

Lighting

Take into account, for example, the presence of public lighting; a garden with a nearby street lamp usually no longer needs any more orientation lights.

Imagine the spotlight in the garden both during the day and after dark. In daylight, the lampshade can be an overly distinctive element of the garden, but it can also be a completely invisible matter that you will discover after it has been switched on. Well-planned lighting adds depth to the space and tells the garden's secret. However, it is important to select not only the right spot but also the appropriate light intensity and colour. We like to use very decent and low pillars, which are hidden in beds.

The colour of particular lights is recommended to be dark, matt black or anthracite. Avoid the often offered stainless steel, it does not match with the garden very well: its surface is very striking and attracts undesirable attention. Select the light source in warm tones. For this reason, we do not recommend solar lights, which are usually offered only in a cold spectrum of radiation.

4 most important tips for a successful lighting plan:

1. Sightlines
When designing your lighting plan, it is good to realize where you actually look at your yard from the most. This is often from the living room and the deck. So make sure that your lighting plan creates a nice view of the yard from these places in the evening.

2. Contrast
Make sure your lighting plan provides enough contrast. That is, not too much but also not too little lighting. Your yard does not have to be a huge sea of light. Ensure there are also darker areas in the yard since this causes the lighted areas to be more noticeable.

3. Intensity
You create excitement in your lighting plan by alternating big or bright outdoor lighting with fixtures that provide subtle or soft light. This makes your lighting plan more interesting. Each in-lite fixture shown on the website and in the product catalog indicates the kind of light they provide.

4. Lighting direction
Also create variation in your lighting plan by using different lighting directions and types of fixtures. For example, if you only use outdoor spotlights, this creates a one-sided, boring impression. Combine ground lights, bollards, wall lights and spotlights together. This creates an interesting lighting effect.
