Light in The Garden

Natural and artificial lighting - Since most plants require direct light for their growth, lighting is an important factor to consider when designing a garden.

Light regulates three major plant processes: photosynthesis, phototropism, and photoperiodism.

Plant photosynthesis - Photosynthesis provides the energy required to produce the energy source of plants.

Plant phototropism - Phototropism is the effect of light on plant growth that causes the plant to grow toward or away from the light.

Plant photoperiodism - Photoperiodism is a plant’s response or capacity to respond to photoperiod, a recurring cycle of light and dark periods of constant length.

In most cases, various types of lighting techniques may be classified and defined by heights: safety lighting, uplighting, and downlighting. Safety lighting is the most practical application. However, it is more important to determine the type of lamps and fitting s needed to create the desired effects.

Garden lighting is now to be an essential element to enhance the outside space around your house. The added warmth and beauty that lighting can bring to an outdoor area will only be fully appreciated if the scheme is designed carefully, correctly and carried-out by a landscape garden designer or company that has the expertise and passion for what they do.

We would suggest that you look for a lighting company With experience and qualifications in horticulture and outdoor electrical installations and discuss your ideas with them.

Understanding the horticultural needs of a particular garden is very important, as plant knowledge is vital when lighting your garden. Knowing how a particular tree or shrub is going to mature is essential when considering whether to illuminate it or not, as well as the selection of plant varieties that have the most attractive foliage or interesting form. Knowing whether the plant is deciduous or herbaceous is also a consideration.

Whether you have a small courtyard or a large garden, outdoor lighting can be used to bring extended use or appreciation especially when lighting trees, shrubs, steps, pathways, patios or ponds, not forgetting the lighting of pergolas, summerhouses, driveways, decking and walls etc.
