I am sure that ‘magic’ is not the word that springs to mind when you think of outdoor lighting. I am going to try and change your perspective on this. Whilst outdoor spaces bring joy during the day, night-time offers nothing but darkness. This is where the magic can happen. By lighting up small sections of the garden, you instantly create another ‘room’ to your house.
Outdoor lights have a plethora of benefits (if implemented correctly). In addition to safety and security benefits, they also highlight key plants, sculptures, pathways and social areas. With a bit of creativity, they can add a magical dimension to both your home and garden.
When dining or entertaining, outdoor lighting helps to extend the experience, encouraging the atmosphere and ambience to continue well into the night. This is what we call the ‘magical feeling’, and it is created through a balance of both light and dark.
Bringing items in the landscape to life with the use of lighting is a very clever way to create shadows, height and depth. To create depth and movement within planting borders, down lights are perfect for pinpointing and showcasing the beautiful sculpture of the herbaceous plants. Our path lights (and downlights) come with a glare guard, which helps to reduce light pollution of the night sky and prevents any glare shining straight into the eyes of you or your guests.
