Bring Your Flower Garden To Life With Lights

Bring your flower garden to life with beautiful landscaping lights. Whether you have a small garden or a vast one, lights don't just illuminate the area but can also bring a sense of sophistication and style to your landscaping design and your home. Learn what you can do to light up your flower garden. 

Arrange Lights Appropriately

Arrange the lights around the garden the right way. One important factor to remember about landscaping lights is that they don't just illuminate the good. Landscaping lights can also highlight the unattractive. Even more importantly, a poor lighting arrangement can affect the overall look of your garden, and not in a favorable way. 

For example, if you have too many lights focusing on an area of your garden where you don't have much flower coverage when the garden is illuminated, the lighting arrangement can cause the garden to look bare. Arrange the lights to illuminate what you want, not what you don't.

Focus Lights Upward

Always focus your garden lights upwards. When you focus your lights down, you often create shadows around the lights that are unattractive. However, in order to focus your lights upward, the bulb has to be placed on some sort of pole or platform. Both of these types of fixtures can actually block the view of your garden, which is not the goal.

When you point your lights upwards, you eliminate the shadows, and you allow the flowers to be showcased in their natural color. However, to get the most benefit from the light direction, use soft lights. Hard lights, even when facing upwards, can create shadows. 

Choose Versatile Lights

Don't be afraid to apply versatility when it comes to the types of light styles you use throughout your flower garden. For example, you can use spotlights, string lights, and flower lights throughout the space. Using a variety of light styles is an excellent idea because it adds texture to the plants since each different light style creates its own look. 

Versatility in lighting is also helpful because it helps ensure that the entire garden area is covered, which can help you avoid unnecessary shadows. As a general rule, the larger the flower garden, the more flexibility you have in terms of light variety.
