Landscape Lighting Essentials: A Balance of Artistry and Functionality

History tells that landscape lighting is a technique that existed way before this generation. Even centuries ago, this home improvement technique (which is not limited to home applications) was used not only for decoration and aesthetics, but also to improve social interaction at night and to ensure the safety of the surroundings.

In selecting lighting for gardens and for the illumination of the home’s façade, several factors are integrated today, such as energy conservation, cost effectiveness, environmental considerations, safety aspects, and suitability for the existing landscape.

One important decision to make is whether to use conventional or unconventional sources of energy. Electricity, which is readily and commercially available, is the conventional source. Other alternatives include solar energy, fossil-fuel-based energy, propane, natural gas, and fire. Among these sources, fire is the oldest technique used in landscape lighting, but it requires a lot of planning for safety purposes.

Landscape lighting is essential for the fullest appreciation and best perception of the home’s exterior. It is an art that needs to be carefully planned and carried out. The market offers thousands of lighting accessories, which may conform not just to the artistic criteria, but also to other factors like the awareness of the global environment and climate, originality, and creativity.

Lighting does not only pertain to the light, per se. It also includes all the lighting accessories that come with it. In selecting such accessories, the existing landscape—which includes plants, fixtures, and pavement—should be carefully considered. The appropriateness of the accessories has a big effect on the entire scenario; do not place anything to ruin the overall look of the landscape. It should be noted that landscape lighting has several elements: power supply, wiring, and electrical fixtures.

The power supply should be consistent, reliable, environment-friendly, and affordable. Lighting should last all night, every single night. Consistency is important to ensure that the beauty of the landscape is appreciated every time somebody comes across it. Clean, renewable energy is preferable to reduce the environmental effects. And it should be practical and cost effective in order to get the most out of the investment.
