Situation: Private house > Garden lighting
Garden lighting designed to create an agreeable atmosphere makes for longer summer evenings and extends the visual boundaries of the home throughout the year. Outdoor lighting serves as an aid to orientation and reduces the risk of accidents. What's more, the illumination it provides acts as a deterrent for potential burglars.
The ideal solution for entrances, paths and garden - even where the area illuminated is small - is a combination of mobile and stationary luminaires: doors and patios can be illuminated by wall luminaires, steps and paths can be marked by pedestal or bollard luminaires and the visual impact of vegetation can be shaped and heightened bymobile spots with earth spike or screw clamp.
Important note! Only luminaires designed for outdoor applications should be used. Best protected against the elements are quality luminaires with high degree of protection ratings. The kind of lamping recommended depends on the lighting task: compact fluorescent lamps with plug-in base, energy-saving lamps or metal halide lamps with a low to medium watt rating provide economical maintained lighting; for occasional, non-maintained lighting, incandescent lamps, PAR lamps or tungsten-halogen lamps are suitable options.
