Not something you’re often encouraged to do. But the best parts of your garden to illuminate are the slender pathways, the channels you might have dug out along fencing or walls, and the depths of your garden where there might be small, shaded spots.
The first reason is to do with practicality. Walkways need lighting so that you can easily and comfortably find your way as you pop in and out.
The second is for ambiance. When you’re sat back down, having the soft glow of the path or garden border in the corner of your eye is reassuring. The same can be said for the tucked away areas. When they’re gently lit, they become pretty and enchanting, rather than murky and unknown.
