Showcase Your Home and Garden with Outdoor Lighting
Mood lighting has moved outside, thanks to solar, low-voltage, and wireless technologies that allow outside lights to be safely and easily placed throughout a yard and garden to create a more natural lighting scheme--and highlight your home's best landscaping and architectural features.
Outside lighting can give a moonlight effect, be placed to dapple light along footpaths or backlight water features. "Landscape lighting is now being used as a means to extend living space so people can enjoy the best of both the inside and outside worlds. I see the focus… on techniques that bring light closer to the house, and make the space more aesthetically pleasing in an unobtrusive manner," says Joe Rey-Barreau, American Lighting Association education consultant.
