One of the main parts of garden’s appearance in nights are lights. There is 3 purpose of garden lighting in nights: beauty – safety – guidance.
Beauty: For beauty of your garden lights must focus on environmental elements like trees, grass, bushes and …. For trees you can put light source under the tree and light it from blow. You can place the bulbs on the grass irregularly. Strip lighting can significantly increase your trees appearance at night in garden.
Safety: One of the main reasons for lighting in gardens is to create a greater sense of security at night. Brightening the corners of the yard as well as creating a brighter space next to the walls and brightening the dark spots will create a safer space. Lamps chosen for security should have features such as durability in harsh weather conditions, proper consumption and durability due to being on for a long time.
Guidance: At night, creating consecutive and focused lights on the ground can guide people in a certain direction. The brightness of this light should be in terms of intensity and angle so that it shows the roughness of the illuminated path well so that people can move easily in this path. Roadside lamps for guidance are divided into several categories, which in one of the simplest classifications based on height include three categories of ground lamps, short, tall. These lamps are usually placed symmetrically on both sides of the passage. If the brightness of the lamps increases, the distance between the lamps will increase. Stairs are one of the most important parts of the path in the garden, and the lamps in this part should be stacked in order to create proper lighting to cross the stairs.
The use of colored lights depends on where we use them. It is appropriate to use warm and dim colors to light the appropriate walls. Walkways require full lighting as well as proper design of the light source shape. For certain routes, we need whitish lights as well as brighter ones for better visibility. Colored lights can also be added to decorate trees and shrubs, which doubles the beauty of the garden at night. To decorate the trees, the use of strip lights can be a good choice. Burial, floor or even short lights can be used to illuminate the path.
With this guidance you could properly design your garden with light to increase beauty and safety of your garden.
