It was during a carefree conversation about landscaping among my gardening friends, the topic of garden lighting came up. The lighting reflects the glamour and creativity in your garden.
Also, you need to have some nocturnal plants to give a perfect touch to your garden during the night time. In other words, plants that flower during the dusk such as Night gladiolus, Angels trumpet and Moonflower vines should be a part of every garden.
However, lighting isn’t as easy as fixing a few light-bulbs here and there. There are all sorts of garden lights, including deck lights, garden spotlights, underwater and exterior lights for steps, driveways, or patios.
Another question that arose was, whether garden lighting is affordable to a typical middle class landscaper. The situations need to be properly assessed. You may think of lighting the garden only during a special occasion. After all, we are in the midst of energy crises.
For instance, if your front yard is only a few square meters in area, a single fountain light would do. But if it’s larger, you may consider more than a couple of places with low power lights, in order to limit the expenditure.
Have you considered lighting up the garden with kerosene oil lamps? It is eye-catching and much easy on the wallet. Hence, gardening is an activity that has many options to it. It is your creative sense that should have the ability to choose what is right depending on the time, space and budget.
