There are essentially two ways in which outdoor lighting can be used effectively. One is to light the pathway to your front door after dusk, the other is to create a tranquil setting in which to enjoy evening entertaining.

Outdoor lighting from Lighting Direct includes a range of applications designed to present exterior areas in an entirely new light, says general manager Dean Fulford.

For a clean light suited to contemporary architectural homes, there is the collection of outdoor Arc halogen inground lights. These fixtures contain a low-voltage 35W halogen lamp, making them especially suitable for uplighting applications.

Another popular lighting option is the Luma low-voltage halogen spotlight collection. The fixtures in this series are made from stainless steel. Each fitting is able to direct light specifically onto architectural or horticulture features such as exterior detailing and distinctive trees and shrubs.

"As the garden is often treated as an outdoor room, lighting contributes greatly to an atmosphere of space and tranquillity," says Fulford.
