A water feature is a beautiful, stand-out addition to the landscaping of any home or business; yet a fountain or pond may present a bit of confusion about the best way to light it, as most landscape lighting should not be consistently used in such a wet environment. Pond lights are a versatile waterproof option of landscape lighting which offer a solution to this problem. These fixtures are specifically designed to be safe when used in and around water features or damp environments.
Because of the way that water ripples and reflects light, a pond lamp can create a particularly beautiful accent piece and highlight a feature that would otherwise be difficult to see after dark. Yet, these lights are not just suitable for ponds, but also other wet environments such as in swimming pools or even submerged in a vase as part of a centerpiece. Many designs of these lights are available in a rainbow of colors that can brighten up a party, and some fixtures include colored lenses that can be switched out to create the ideal ambiance for any holiday or event.
When it comes to installing landscape pond lights, there are a few different configurations to choose from. Some lamps are intended to be permanently installed and hardwired, while others are designed for stake mounting, or even floating in a water feature. While these installation styles offer a lot of flexibility in placement and positioning, any of these can be installed relatively simply to create memorable outdoor lighting that complements your home or business.
Pond lights, like other landscape lighting, also come in a range of colors and finishes to complement any other outdoor lighting or hardware you may have. From simple matte black materials to subtle but refined brass, there are looks that can work well with most designs. So you never have to compromise on style to properly light every area in your outdoor space.
