Other than the above ways to light objects there are other ways such as spread lighting, path lighting, moon lighting and security lighting. Spread lighting is done by using low-level lights to cast light upon ground covers, shrubs, or flower beds; these can also be used underwater to highlight a pond. Path lighting can consist of low impact lights or lights that are shielded so they shine on the path for visibility and safety. Moon lighting is accomplished in the same manner as downlighting as described above. We use security lighting to guard against crime and uninvited pests. It is best to illuminate all areas that intruders like to hide and the best ones for that are spotlights that are set to come on when any type of motion occurs.
There are a few things to avoid in regards to landscape lighting. When there are too many lights lighting up your property it will look too garish and you do not want that. You basically only want to bring out the most interesting aspects of your landscape features, structures, and/or special areas. When you place lights along a pathway do not line them up evenly, alternate them for each side and make sure they are spaced according to what the manufacturer recommends.
Here are more landscape lighting tips that will apply either to low voltage or solar lights for good results in the garden. You can accomplish uplighting by placing the light below a target and positioning the beam on an upwards angle for highlighting, this will create a focal point. Downlighting is done by doing just the opposite; place the light source high above an object and position the beam of light on a downward angle to highlight an object or large area. By placing a downlight close to ground level it will create light puddles to light a walkway or pathway. Grazing an object means to position the light close the surface and it will display the texture of the surface. To silhouette an object hide the lights behind and below that object and the night sky will show its silhouette.
Homes with landscape lighting attract more attention than homes without landscape lighting. The better the landscape lighting, obviously, the more attention the homes or business will attract. Accent lighting and landscape lighting can bring forth a very different night time beauty that was previously overlooked. During the darker winter months, landscape lighting can add a value of warmth to the look of the home or business, which will make it appealing and inviting. During the summer months when the landscaping is in full bloom, landscape lighting will accentuate the best and most appealing parts of your landscaping while creating a very attractive and even festive look to the home or business.
