If you’ve been reading this blog for any time you’ve read how I’ve used various types of landscape lighting to enhance the look of my home, highlight plants and gently light my garden. I love siting in my garden at night. The outdoor lights aren’t very bright, but they light the garden just enough that I can see some of the plants and structure of the garden. It’s very peaceful and pretty.
If you’ve been thinking of installing outdoor lighting in your yard visit Starry Night Lights. They have a large selection of night sky friendly lighting from which you can choose.
You’ll find everything from metallic and ceramic wall scones, to wall lanterns, landscape lights, architectural lighting, light shades and even sign lights. These lights are designed to not only enhance the look of your home and property, but to reduce the effects of light pollution in the community.
You see that’s what I like about siting in my garden. The lights I use are bright enough to enhance the look of my yard, but not so bright that I can’t look up and see the night sky and if I’m lucky some stars as well.
That’s what light pollution is – when outdoor lighting used by homes, businesses and to light the city are so bright that they blot out the sky making it impossible to see the sky properly. You’ll actually find some great articles on the StarryNightLights.com website about light pollution and the billions of dollars that are wasted annually in the US just lighting up our cities and as a result the sky too.
