Once you have determined the objectives of the landscape lighting design, you should be making the sketch of your yards. You need to include everything in the sketch such as benches, shrubs, trees, buildings, vegetation, existing lights and decorations. These items must be included because many of which will absorb or reflect the light that will be produced by the lighting fixtures. Moreover, you need to include also the estimation of the height of these items. Then, you need to match your lighting needs with the different locations in the backyards in the landscape lighting design. You may need to illuminate certain things and also concentrate the lighting in these specific areas. The areas that would need more lighting would be the areas of the path as this would be for the security reasons so that everyone passing it can be seen from the house and also the benches where you can sit in the garden.
During the day, your landscape has enchanted every person passing by, but not so during the night as the darkness and minimum lights are only showing as much. Well, with the money and the effort spent on the garden landscaping, it would only be best if you can show your pretty garden 24 hour a day. Do not let nighttime cause your garden to disappear. Put it on a different and more glamorous display at night with the landscape lighting design.
Do not worry about the electricity consumption on the landscape lighting design. With all the energy saving bulbs and also the LED bulbs, you would be able to light your beautiful landscape with low voltage and low budget of maintenance. Before you start with the project, you will have to be able to determine the purpose of the lights. Do you want to have romantic and soft lights or do you want to have bright lights for security reason? Maybe you want to highlight some areas?
