To get the most out of your garden you need to firstly look at what exterior lighting your outdoor spaces will require. An effect garden lighting scheme will create a welcoming and safe atmosphere for your guests. There are a number of outdoor lighting types that give off a certain illumination. Ambient garden lighting is a must, it illuminates the garden to help you see where you’re going. Posts and pedestals will do the trick. Then there is task lighting, this type of lighting will focus on activity areas of the garden such as a seating and dining area. A wall light placed near your outdoor dining area is recommended. Accent lighting is ideal for emphasising trees, shrubs and plants. Stake lights and string lights fall under this category and will add a whimsical and wonderful effect, perfect for garden parties. Lastly is security lighting, don’t go overboard if you don’t feel you need to. PIR Sensor lighting is ideal for deterring intruders, place at the front, rear and side of the house for extra security.
