Planning Garden Lighting

When planning your garden lighting there are a few things to consider. Your garden lighting electrician will ask you to think about how you plan on using your garden – will you be having parties, relaxing in peace on the patio, or just enjoying the view from your window? The way you plan on using your garden will help inform the garden lighting design. If you are planning on summer parties, you will need to have pathways and trip hazards well-lit and will need a brighter area for people to gather. If you want an area to relax in your garden, then gentler mood lighting will be the order of the day. Finally, if you just want to admire the beauty of your garden from the comfort of your living room, you will want to use lighting that creates a striking effect.

Your garden lighting electrician will also ask you to consider safety and security in your garden. Whilst security lighting may not seem to have a place in a garden lighting design, with clever planning and placement it can be multifunctional. A flood light can provide good lighting for a patio and deter intruders. Porch lights can look pretty and improve safety. Your garden lighting electrician will use their experience to help you get the most out of your garden lighting.
