Lighting

The design of a garden includes several phases in which the fundamental components of the outdoor space, the furnishings, the style and the various accessories will be identified. Among these, lighting certainly stands out, a real necessity in a garden, both for safety reasons and for aesthetic purposes. A poorly lit garden can create inconvenience for entering in the dark, making you risk not seeing obstacles inside. Furthermore, good lighting makes the garden more welcoming, creating suggestions and ideal atmospheres for moments of relaxation and summer stay in the outdoor space. The design of the system to illuminate the garden cannot therefore be left to chance, but must be carefully planned, both from a practical and a financial point of view.

Lighting choice


The lighting of the garden is achieved through furnishing accessories that can take the form of lamps, street lamps, lanterns or spotlights. Each of these elements must be chosen and evaluated on the basis of your own spending and the style you want to give to the garden. Not all outdoor lamps are, in fact, useful for decorating a garden. In a very rustic outdoor space you can use street lamps, while in a smaller and minimalist space you can use modern outdoor lamps. Aesthetically interesting also the light points that start from the bottom and that are obtained by applying spotlights on the lawn. A garden in perfect oriental style could also benefit from curious and original Japanese lanterns.

Plant design


When designing good garden lighting, it is necessary to exactly identify the light points, i.e. the areas where the various devices of the system will be positioned. The number of light points will also affect the number and cost of the lamps to be applied. The positioning of the light points must follow practical rules (illuminate where needed), but also aesthetic ones (illuminate for decoration). The light points to make the garden space clearly visible are, for example, at the entrance of the house that overlooks the external space and at the sides of the entrance gate towards the garden. Light points for vision and decoration can be placed near shrubs, hedges and flower beds, or to skirt green paths, especially in very large and spacious gardens. In the gardens with a large green lawn, the LED spotlights, also of various colors, placed on the sides, they offer suggestions and plays of light of unspeakable charm and beauty. The play of light can also be placed at the base of lawns enriched with bushes or flowering herbaceous plants. The soft lights from below enhance the color of the flowers even during the night, giving fantastic suggestions made of chiaroscuro and more or less intensely illuminated spaces. Light points should also be placed near the garden furniture, or tables and chairs, which in the evening are used to welcome friends and relatives to whom it is necessary to offer a well-lit environment. Good lighting cannot be missing even in a garden where there are ponds, fountains or swimming pools, both for practical reasons (avoid falling into the water) and for aesthetic reasons,

Ecological lighting


The renewed awareness of consumers for “green” issues is leading to the choice of ever more ecological lighting systems and not only for the interiors, but also for the exteriors. There are still not many gardens that use solar-powered lighting systems, but they are still enough to indicate a trend already underway that sees purchases of purely biocompatible furnishings in the first place. Solar lamps perform this very important function, which thanks to a solar-powered device can emit a vivid and very intense light. Solar garden lamps are offered in the form of common lamps, street lamps, spotlights and lanterns. The outer casing is usually in coated metal, while the inside is made up of a device that captures the sun’s energy, transforming it into light. In this nascent market, there are various commercial proposals, where, as always, disappointments are always lurking. Solar garden lamps can, in fact, have different price ranges, from 4 to 150 euros. In order not to run into poorly functioning products, it is better to prefer those that are maintained at an average price level. It is also very important to test these lamps, perhaps by consulting with those who have already tried them. When you can find the right product, the advantages of solar lamps, in terms of energy saving, low environmental impact and high aesthetic performance, are truly remarkable.
