The garden’s lighting is an essential element of its configuration. It often serves as additional security to the household.

The choice of lighting depends on the size of the area. The small garden can be lit by only one source, which may not even be in its grounds, but built in the fence, the front door, or on specified placed on the building.A bigger garden needs more and diverse lighting. It should first be thought about the different sectors in it. The swimming-pool must be lit well. This can be done by a single source, or a few light fittings, surrounding its entire area. A combination of lighting options can be made if the swimming-pool is of greater area.

The other zones – for alcoves, benches, special cribs for resting, should also have their own lighting. It can be achieved by lamps, specially build onto pillars for that purpose. Interesting ideas include globes, hanging from different height over the lit zone. However, for this purpose there should be a specially thought out lighting system, which encompasses the entire surface of the garden.The pathways need to be lit as well. This gives an opportunity for creativity to be utilized, as a beautifully lit pathway is always a good accent to the general outlook of the home garden.

Front door lighting

The main path, leading to the front door, can be lit by a line of globes, build close to the ground at equal distances from one another. If there are additional buildings, such as garages, a guest house, a shed, they should be lit in the same pattern as the house. If there is sports equipment, such a tennis court or a basketball field, lighting fittings should be placed at all four ends of them, so as to pervade through their entire area.The house itself can be lit by building in lamps onto its surface, usually under the roof space. A house, wrapped in darkness, brings to mind unpleasant emotions, while the well lit home creates a sense of liveliness and dynamics, even when the place is peaceful at the moment.
