Getting the right level of garden lighting is something that we only gain experience in if we either visit someone else’s garden, or we know an expert in the field. One man’s lighitng can definitely be another man’s super trooper nightmare. For those considering an exterior lighting scheme, it is very important to remember that even a little bit of lighting goes a long way at night. Less is more in most cases. Also, using lighting schemes selectively, only some parts illuminated and others left dark will help mask some of the less attractive areas – the compost bin and rubbish bin storge for example. Most garden lighting fittings come in black, but if you want to install in an existing landscaped area, green fittings are available as are bronze, for installing in a tree, so as not to stick out against the natural bark of the tree.
