Warm And Decorative Garden Lighting Ideas
Decorative garden lighting can be used to highlight focal points in your garden or as an ornamental feature itself. Garden lighting refers to any type of lighting used with a garden or similar outdoor area. Garden lighting often serves both a practical purpose; to provide light to an area for easier night time navigation, and an aesthetic purpose; to look nice and enhance the visual appeal of an area during low light conditions. Garden lighting fixtures come in a variety of basic sizes, but the best decorative garden lighting can be categorized into a few basic types. If you want the lights themselves to be noticed, canopy lights may be the best choice. Set on top of 18- to 24-inch posts, they illuminate whatever is below them, such as a pretty flower bed, a garden pathway or a landscape border. They’re designed to add a decorative element to your garden, so their posts and casings are often attractive. Hanging lights add decorative appeal and can highlight focal points in your garden. They’re designed similar to strings of Christmas lights and are available with decorative or themed covers, such as paper lanterns or butterflies.
These are ideal for drawing attention to ornamental trees and shrubs or hanging along fences to back light your flower beds. If you want a decorative garden lighting that puts the focus on a particular garden element instead of the fixture, bullet lights may be the best solution. Bullet lights are installed closer to the ground than canopies, and have a narrow beam that lights up focal points, such as garden structures or ornamental trees and shrubs.
