If you are choosing lighting your garden then you are going to have many different options to go for. There are a wide range of styles that will be suitable for any type of garden, and these will come at a wide range of prices. When you are selecting lighting your garden it is important that you bear your budget in mind because if you do not you’ll find it quite easy to go over it.
Don’t worry even if you don’t have a lot of money to spend on lighting in your garden because even with limited funds, you are going to be able to create a fantastic theme throughout your plot. When you are designing how you want the lighting to be in your garden it is a good idea to sketch out your garden and make a very specific plan.
If you have a path, this would be a good area to light initially, and then you can move onto lighting in other areas as your garden grows. Remember the lighting is not just about illumination, but it is also about working with different angles and casting shadows.
As well as making your garden look great it is important to bear in mind the energy required to light your garden. It was once the case that garden lighting had to be powered from the mains because solar panels and lights were not really efficient enough to provide enough illumination. However, in recent years, solar energy has come on a great deal and it is now possible to easily lighter garden with solar power alone.
One of the major reasons why this technology has come to the fore in recent years is because of the advent of LED lighting. This is a much more efficient way of lighting a garden as LED’s use around 80 percent less energy than a normal bulb.
