While it was a little while in coming this year, I think it’s safe to say that spring is here in full. Our lawns are lush, requiring a weekly mow. While your grass is important, it is not the only component of your landscape. Trees, shrubs, and flowerbeds work together to create a garden that brings tranquility to you, your family, and your guests. Of course, your garden requires work. It is not easy to cultivate and maintain a beautiful garden, and with all the work you put into it, the results should be visible any time – day or night. Bathed in exquisite garden lighting from Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Memphis, you sanctuary can turn heads after sunset.
By using a combination of lighting fixtures and techniques, we can highlight the very best features of your garden whether they are trees, shrubs, flowers, or a combination of all three. Often, we illuminate trees with dramatic uplighting. This involves placing lights near the base of the tree and angling them upward, a technique that illuminates the crown of the tree and creates striking shadows in the foliage. Shrubs and flowerbeds are often illuminated with well lights or spotlights. When using this technique, we purposefully leave some areas more shadowed. This draws an observer’s focus to the features you want to highlight, but then allows for an interesting visual as these features contrast with shadows.
Sometimes, garden lighting involves illuminating features that are not flowers, plants, or trees. For example, we may need to light a path. To accomplish this, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Memphis uses our copper path lights, which are mounted to easily positioned stakes. These fixtures create pools of light that spill over your path, providing ambiance and safety for those passing through your garden. We may also need to light a sitting area, wall, or fence. Using the appropriate techniques, we will make your entire garden shine.
So if you want all the hard work you put into your garden visible no matter the time of day, call us today. Our designers will develop the perfect design, highlighting all of your garden’s best features, so it is the tranquil place where all of your neighbors want to be after dark.
