Why put in outdoor lighting
Apart from the obvious, like not tripping over the dog and falling headfirst into the swimming pool, outdoor lighting has many advantages. Especially if it forms part of a well-designed garden landscape. Outdoor lighting gives a garden interesting angles and accents, colours and shapes, mood and shadows. You can use lighting to highlight a pond, a feature tree or garden bed, outline and light the driveway, a pathway, the edge and mood of your entertainment area or light up the swimming pool. Beautiful garden lighting means that your garden becomes another outdoor room not only during the day but also at night. Lighting also provides a security feature.
What are my options
Working together with your vision, your lifestyle, your existing garden design and your budget, Richard Robertson will design and install a perfect lighting solution for your garden landscape. There are many factors to consider; aesthetics, position and purpose. Then there's the style of lighting: LED lights, halogen lights, spiked in-ground lighting, step lights, deck lights, up down lights and pond lights. Brightness, colour and shape are an important part of your light choice and each light has its own specific properties. Halogen and LED are versatile and adaptable. LEDs are economic, efficient and cool to the touch. They are great for security. If you want a warm glow then Halogen is a good choice.
