Although garden lighting may seem complicated at first, the installation is really not difficult at all. There are many different types of garden lighting that requires different means when it comes to the installation of the lights. Many home owners use a special type of lighting called up lighting or garden spot lights that are meant to shine up the height of your tall trees, statues, large plants. This type of lighting creates a full large and artistic feel to the area. To create a completely opposite affect, you will want to use shadow and silhouette lighting. Shadow lighting occurs when you place lights at a specific angle directly in front of a plant or shrub so that it will reflect another surface.
