What Houzz contributors are saying:
11. Highlight your garden’s best features“Start by identifying your garden’s best features and any areas that deserve an emphasis – for example, a beautiful tree or sculpture,” says Cameron. “Then create a hierarchy of lighting to establish depth and harmony. Consider which tones of light will enhance your chosen feature or features. And do you want to integrate reflections or lengthen a tree to make a statement?“In our projects, we begin by incorporating a luminous wash that creates an evenly lit canvas. We then create layers by carefully spot lighting individual elements. It is important to do this gradually, and remember that ‘less is more’ when it comes to creating a balanced and pleasant result,” she says.
