More About Landscape lighting Services from Wikipedia



Landscape lighting or garden lighting refers to the use of outdoor lighting of private gardens and public landscapes; for the enhancement and purposes of safety, nighttime aesthetics, accessibility, security, recreation and sports, and social and event uses.


History


The public landscape and gardens have been Lighting for as long as interior building have - for beauty, security, Circulation (architecture), and social occasions; since ancient times by firelight from wood, candles, and animal-plant oil fells in torches, Sconce (light fixture) and lanterns. Since the 17th century's introductions of new interior illumination fuels, the technology has then been used outdoors and in gardens. As systems were developed for power delivery, Gas lighting of the 19th century and electric light of the 20th century became part of exterior functioning and design.The Landscape Lighting Book -?---> With the combination of increasing demand for more efficient lighting, increasing availability of sustainable designs, global warming considerations, and aesthetic and safety concerns in garden design and landscape design the methods and equipment of outdoor illumination have been evolving. The increasing use of LEDs, solar power, low voltage fixtures, energy efficient lamps, and energy-saving lighting design are examples of innovation in the field.

  • Solar source electricity based fixtures:
    On each fixture - photovoltaics - light bulbs
    From property's solar panel system - lighting fixtures, fiber optics
