You enjoy the wonders of your landscaped garden throughout the daylight hours… but is it accessible to you when the sun goes down as well? If you would like to be able to appreciate the mysterious beauty of your Haverford, Malvern, Paoli or Rosemont home residence in the nighttime hours, check out some ways you can make your garden come alive with the ambiance of landscape lighting.
- Define parameters – Particularly useful for romantic walkways, less can actually be more. Lights need to guide the eye gently down the pathway without blurring the subtle colors and shadows which make a night walk so enchanting. Place lights carefully and tastefully, perhaps even near a plant whose leaves and colors will be illuminated by the lights to create a colorful, personal, glowing atmosphere.
- Provide indirect lighting – By fixing lights high overhead, there is no harsh lighting at eye level, thus mimicking moonlight, which creates an intimate, cozy, conversational setting foral fresco dining or late night tete-a-tetes for your Haverford, Malvern, Paoli or Rosemont home residence.
- Illuminate water – There is something mesmerizing about the play of water in light and shadows. Any water feature, while beautiful by day, can definitely become a focal point for nighttime drama. For even greater luminescent effect, water accents can be lit both from within and without.
- Go natural – Part of the charm of darkness is how the other senses must largely take over for sight, so the senses of sound and smell are enhanced. Use lighting as a means to provide safety while moving through the dark garden, but place sparingly in order to let the other senses bring a new level of depth, mystery and enjoyment to your landscape. Dimly lit water features, combined with the powerful fragrance of a garden in full bloom, bring a complete sensory experience.
