In addition to providing brightness, carefully placed lighting can help create a mood or ambiance in your garden. While it’s easy to understand the benefits of outdoor lighting, it’s a bit more overwhelming to figure out what type of lighting to select, as there are a lot of options.

Let’s look at the brightest trends for this year.

You can use the filters with white lights to bring out extra warmth or create a cool tone. To create dramatic settings and focus attention on landscape highlights you can use color filters.
