In the UK we spend more time looking out on our gardens than we do in them and during the winter months our gardens are in the dark from late afternoon. It makes sense therefore to consider how to maximise those views all year round and lighting is the answer.
Less is more with garden lighting and should be considerate to both neighbours and wildlife. Used effectively, lighting can provide another dimension to your garden creating a relaxed, calm space, emphasising plants or features that may not be the stars of the garden in the daylight.
Lighting can be divided into three applications; Functional, Aesthetic and Feature and the right combination can extend the pleasure of your garden all year round.
