Last week we talked about outdoor lighting for your Wilmington garden and how there is an art to lighting flowers and gardens at night that makes them come alive. Lighting the colors, textures, size and shadows all play a part in making your garden look truly wonderful at night. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Wilmington has the experience and the fixtures to make everything from your pathways to your nighttime blooms draw you into the garden to smell the beautiful fragrances. But what if there is something other than your pathways and plants that could be highlighted at night? What if your garden includes a koi pond? Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Wilmington can help enhance that at night as well.
Koi ponds are actually more attractive at night and adding lights to your koi pond can double the time you enjoy your fish. Just as unique as the various types of fish, so is the shape of your pond, the landscaping surrounding it and the location of the pond. Each of these unique characteristics deserve to be put in the best light so you can enjoy them all night long whether you’re sitting on your deck or viewing it from inside. After all, you’re not just lighting the pond, you’re highlighting the fish, their movement and their surroundings. That’s where hiring an outdoor lighting professional will give you the best options when it comes to the right techniques and fixtures.
At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Wilmington, we start by lighting within the pond to highlight the fish movement. As with every outdoor lighting fixture, proper placement of underwater pond light is essential. You want to reflect off the fish to see their colors and movement, not their shadows. The vibrant colors of the koi and goldfish play off the aquatic plants within the pond to provide a stunning visual effect. This cannot be done with any old lighting fixture, it needs a special fixture that is not only waterproof, but also must be able to withstand submersion and the force of moving water while illuminating the plants and fish within. Our cast brass underwater pond light can handle these situations with ease. The secured bracket keeps the low-voltage light in place and the high quality gaskets keep it sealed and watertight so you can have confidence that your fish are completely safe in the pond with the lights.
In addition to lighting under water, we will also take a look at the ponds surroundings. Leaving the landscaping around the water in the dark will detract from the overall appearance. We use a combination of lighting techniques to make the entire area more animated: up lighting on trees, spot lighting a statue, grazing to bring out the textured beauty of surrounding rocks and spread lighting to disperse illumination on the shrubs and flowers are just a few examples. No matter what you desire, we can achieve it.
