Tree Up lighting
Imagine owning oil paintings by the old master hanging on your living room walls. It may be a turner seascape or perhaps a titian portrait. In the daytime, it lights the room, but when night comes, it fades in the background to become a part of your furniture. You only have to shine some light onto it. Doing this will give it light; restoring its fascination and presence.
A few people are quite fortunate to own a portrait of the old master, but many of them own at least a large shrub or tree in their gardens. Like the turner seascape or titian portrait inside the living room, the large shrub or tree is a big presence in your garden, shaping the whole landscape and keeping your eyes on the target. Its source of delight is changing light through subtly plays of branches, barks, and leaves. At dusk, this disappears and it seems shameful and an opportunity that is lost. Since large shrubs and trees are by nature candidates of night lighting, their size gives them a realistic presence, and height adds dramatic dimensions to their schemes of lighting, which is restricted to the level of the ground, will feel quite flat.
Shrubs and trees come in different sizes and shapes, therefore, it is fortunate to note that there are many ways of carrying out tree uplighting. The most obvious and simplest way is to use the spike-mounted spotlights. You push spikes to the garden soil to fit them in place, and then point spotlights up to the tree, and the job is complete. This light fitting is available at Tampa bay outdoor lighting installers at all times. You can get it in LED or twelve-volt dichroic halogen lamps. LEDs will not have enough output of light to illuminate big trees; therefore, you will require halogen to cope up with smaller or medium-sized shrubs.
There are two drawbacks of using spike-mounted spotlights. The leading one is that you can swam it by foliage when you put it on a border with other plantings. The best solution is to use pole-mounted spotlights. Uplifting effects will be similar, and the difference will be the height of rising the light on top of the under-storey planting. Pole lights come in the two hundred and forty volt metal halide or twelve volt halogen bulb and some of the feature two mounted spotlights on one pole for twice the output of light. If you need high light output, you can use the thirty-five watt halide to produce light that is equal to six halogen lamps.
The other con of tree uplighting is when your tree is surrounded with grass. If that is the case, you need to remove your spotlight each time you are mowing the lawn, which is not a good arrangement. The best thing to do is to use uplighters which are recessed to the ground. They are widely available and you can mow better versions without damaging the fitting. Seek models that have adjustable lamps for you to direct the beam away from its vertical. It allows you to direct the light where you want, mostly if your uplighter cannot get back to the ground by the trunk of the tree because of root congestion..
The next thing to consider is the section of the tree where you will do tree uplighting. In case your tree is columnar, then this query will not arise. One tree uplighter for lighting the trunk will by nature light the foliage ad branches as light beams become broader while ascending. Nevertheless, in case the tree has a broad crown, you will wish to place a few uplighters some distance from its trunk for the whole of the crown gets caught in vertical beams. If you choose this solution, you will have to consider if you want an uplighter to do the lighting to the trunk, especially if your tree has a good-looking bark.
