1. Set the mood
There are endless ways you can enjoy your garden after sunset. All you need is proper house exterior lighting and your best creative abilities. For instance, if you like dining outdoors, you could use garden lighting that offers enough light for comfortable dining while accenting your outdoor furniture set. One option is to use creative centrepieces on the table itself, such as lanterns, candles, and other lovely lighting accessories, or you may hang lights over the dining table to put it under the spotlight.
2. Make it practical
Garden lighting is just as important as indoor lighting. Besides being able to set the mood as you please, the right outdoor lights help you make the most out of your backyard. Ensure the proper pathway lighting for when you come home at night or for continuing reading on your sunbed even after dusk. Additionally, you may use garden lighting to draw attention to your favourite outdoor features, including your porch, decorative pieces, or even your pond.
3. Stay safe
It's essential to have good visibility in your front and back yard for a number of reasons. You'll be able to safely secure your home against burglary, in addition, to easily navigating your pathways at night. If you live in an area where there are wild animals, garden lighting also lowers the possibility of furry uninvited visitors intruding.
Consider a sensor-equipped wall lamp that you can hang close to the entrance or back door, for instance. It will turn on when movement is sensed within a set range and turn off again automatically after a specified amount of time. You can also choose a variant with a twilight sensor. This lamp switches on when it gets dark and switches off again when the sun starts to rise.
