Tips for outdoor lighting

The main aim of having proper outdoor lighting is to ensure good visibility around the perimeter of the house and to give it a distinct feature during night time. Selecting right type of lighting fixtures and ensuring a proper layout and wiring form the foundation of good outdoor lighting. It is also important to ensure that the outdoor lights are waterproof so that they do not blow their fuse every time it rains. In addition, it should be extremely safe so that there are no unwarranted instances of electrocution due to faulty or loose wiring.

In case you have a walkway leading to your home, you can simply use outdoor lighting on both sides of it to illuminate the path. That apart, you can use outdoor lighting to highlight certain eye-catching features of your garden such as a water fountain, a bird bath or a small rock garden. You can also place a spotlight on a dense tree to simulate moonlight.
