What types of lighting do we use?
UP-LIGHTING is a technique that is utilized frequently by landscape lighting designers to emphasize a particular feature in the yard. Suitable subjects for this technique include open structured, ornamental trees, Japanese maples, and dogwoods. The light fixtures will be shielded from view to avoid glare.
DOWN LIGHT is used if you have an abundance of mature trees in your garden, we can install lights high up in the canopy above branches and leaves. This will cast interesting shadows down onto the surrounding areas while at the same time, creating an inviting level of illumination in the surrounding area.
BACK LIGHT involves positioning a light in the same plane as an interestingly textured surface such as a brick or stone wall. This light will bring out the texture while providing reflected light into the surroundings.
PATHWAY LIGHT provides a soft subtle light for the walkway or stairway. The fixtures protrude about 20" above ground and are usually made of solid brass.
By far the most suitable lighting systems for installation in the garden environment, are known as LOW VOLTAGE. These are normally 12 volts and are therefore inherently safe. Not only are they more economical to install, they grow and develop with the garden.
