Before you invest in any landscape lighting, ask yourself what your purposes are for wanting illumination in your backyard. Perhaps you want to set a soft, romantic mood during the evening hours. Maybe you have a bench or a shadowy garden corner you need to illuminate for security reasons. A path leading through the garden may require landscape lighting to mark its boundaries.
Whilst it’s more difficult to make exterior spaces cosy and inviting, due to being wide open, using the right furniture, accessories and lighting can create an alluring ambience.
