One of the key discussions you will have with your landscapers when deciding what features you want for your new landscaped garden is lighting. First, you have to decide whether you want any lighting or not, and then there are hundreds of choices of lighting types to go through to select which types you will have, where they will be located, and how they are to be powered.

While some lighting that you include in your landscape design is similar to the lighting you may have indoors, for the most part, there are several differences, all of which you must be aware of. This is why selecting lighting for a landscaped garden takes considerable thought. To help you with that task, Principal Landscapes has provided some useful pointers and some advice on lighting for landscaping.

Ways To Illuminate A Landscaped Garden

There are several ways to illuminate a landscaped garden.

  • Tree Lighting: This can highlight the trees in your garden and create an amazing effect. It only requires a single uplight for each tree which is usually white or amber, but in truth, it could be any colour.
  • Deck Lighting: As much for practical reasons as well as decorative, lighting your decking using embedded lights in the paneling is eye-catching, especially around seating areas.
