Landscape & Garden Lighting Design
Lighting Design is an integral element of Landscape & Garden Lighting, one that extends the possibilities for lighting outdoor living areas at night. The benefits of outdoor landscape lighting extend beyond safety and security, deriving atmosphere from nature, and broadening the visible night-scape.
Consideration of Trees and foliage types, Luminaire types & flexibility of Positioning, Energy Efficiency, Durability and Maintenance requirements, Colour Temperatures, Lighting for Security - all are aspects crucial to the lighting design of, and your enjoyment of Landscape & Garden Lighting.
Lighting Solutions are willing and able to assist with a wide range of product related enquiries, lighting schedules / specifications and project support. We believe however that the benefit of employing a Professional Lighting Designer to work with you to produce a Lighting Design and specification to budget, and to follow the project through to completion on the clients behalf is very much in the client's interests.
This opens a discussion between Lighting Designer and participating Consultants to define a Lighting brief and budget, provide Lighting Concepts in plan and illustrated formats presenting an aesthetic viewpoint, propose and select luminaire types, provide energy efficiency calculations and life-cycle costs, provide Project 'Cost Engineering' to budget, etc...or simple advice.
Make sure your Project Team are on the same page. A competent Lighting Designer will help you coordinate between participants in your project that require comprehensive technical info and clear communication in order to work effectively together toward a common goal, such as - End Users - Project Managers - Developers - Architects and Designers - Landscape Designers - Automation Specialists - Landscape Gardeners - Pool Installers - Electrical Installers - Lighting Solutions.
Lighting design at it's best is an art form that extends the mediums of light and space, often with unforeseen emotive atmospheric results. At the same time Lighting is very much a technology based discipline, where outcomes are determined by a range of technical parameters, physical componentry, and 'energy' input. Additional demands are placed upon lighting that is exposed to the elements.
The wide range of specific sculptural lighting effects available for Landscape & Garden Lighting, Energy Efficiency and the availability of increasingly 'affordable' energy efficient LED lighting, and the increased need for durability of luminaires to match the long life of LED Light Sources - mean a professional Landscape or Garden Lighting Design should be considered not as an extravagance but as a pragmatic decision to future proof your installation. Ultimately good Landscape Lighting Design will provide safety & security, ensure your installation continues to perform over time, and enhance your Landscape or Garden at night.
