Gardening, beautifying the environment and making things lively, with a little love of garden decoration – these are interesting, passionate hobbies that I take seriously. Along the way I naturally always get into the garden lighting aspect of things, which can create great “visual effects” in the garden. Using garden lighting can really make the garden more attractive and create dramatic shading effects. It’s really cool to experiment, and the only way to start is by doing what I do: do some research and try again!
Oh, but I’ll give you a benefit that I don’t have. Indeed, some of your skills have been learned from experience.
The first thing to remember in the beginning is that less is more. The beginner’s trend is to relax. I admit it’s an easy thing to do, drawn to the excitement that garden lighting can inspire, and then you know your garden is glowing. With a small test you will see that the biggest reduction is more work for garden lighting.
With this in mind, and following the same idea, it’s not just about your lighting, but your unlit lighting as well. To use garden lighting is to place all lighting and non-lighting next to each other. This creates a spectacular visual effect, with lights illuminating certain aspects of the garden and shading other areas. The parts not illuminated by the light will produce the contrast we want, which is an important aspect to keep in mind when placing lights for the garden.
It may be that hiding the light source is preferable visually so that no one can see the light directly (without difficulty), or even the source of the light. The easiest way to hide the light is to throw it behind an item already in the yard, such as a rock or plant of the right size. If this is not possible, just put an anti-glare cover on the lamp! Don’t forget that LED lights have become a modern choice for gardens today. They have many advantages and are well suited to the conditions in the garden. They are small, easy to hide, provide bright light, can be adjusted and programmed, and consume much less power.
Try out different garden lighting accessories (such as frosted lenses or beam angles) and have fun. These light modulators can help create the desired look and provide a more unique type of lighting for the garden.
Setting up your garden lighting the way you want it takes a little work, some patients, a lot of experimentation, and an attitude that can be done. However, if you’re a gardener worthy of salt, then you already have all of these qualities – in this case, I know you’re going to set up new garden lighting right!
