During the earlier summer months my backyard was a functional and safe place to socialize and relax without resorting to outdoor lights. Where I live the sun can still be shining until 9.30pm. In fact, during the month of June the skies became dark and the backyard become too dark to be safe right around the time I wanted some BBQ guests to leave so it worked out perfectly.
If, for example, the front of your home has a quaint garden and fountain, it is best to emphasis these areas with outdoor fixtures which cast the light downward. A footpath is also emphasized for aesthetic appeal and safety through the use of outdoor lighting fixtures. You can utilize outdoor lighting to create the perfect layers of illumination for an outdoor seating area, a bench for stargazing, a porch, deck, or an outdoor patio. Determining the most appropriate outdoor fixtures is best done by considering energy efficiency, color, design, and aesthetic appeal. Each home is different and each homeowner will have a different creative mindset. Some want outdoor lighting fixtures which fit within the monochromatic exterior of their home while others desire complementary colors and designs. There are iron wrought designs for outdoor lighting fixtures, or delicate lamps whose shades direct artificial light downward.
And general lighting provides an overall feeling of comfort for your guests. And you should try to consider taking advantage of natural light, like moonlight, starlight, or sunlight. When combined with the right outdoor lighting, this can have the ultimate effect.
