Have you ever watched a well lit pool at a fancy hotel or perhaps on a cruise and admired the light dancing on the water? There really is not much more soothing than seeing the play of light on the top of the water. Homeowners are increasingly including water features, water fountains, and sometimes even Koi ponds in their landscape design. Through the addition of lighting, the water feature in your landscape can transform the entire persona of your landscape come sundown.
Special techniques are required to enhance the areas surrounding your waterfall or water feature. The overall goal with waterfall lighting is to provide a soft wash of light; nothing too intense. There also must be adequate distance from the area targeted to be illuminated so the beam of light has enough room to spread. The way to achieve this is through a combination of up lighting, back lighting and even underwater lighting. We use submersible lighting fixtures which are able to produce a subtle glow while maintaining their gasket seal while underneath the water.
Another method of making your waterfall or water feature stand out is by illuminating the foliage surrounding these water features. By utilizing surrounding landscaping, your water feature or waterfall can become a glowing focal point; very subtly the illumination will gradually build up onto the water feature. Not only are our fixtures made of extremely high quality, but they are capable of being implemented in nearly every area of your waterfall or water feature. Through the use of solid brass fixtures with waterproof and watertight gaskets, our fixtures can be placed nearly anywhere you desire. Both the appearance and safety of our water feature lighting fixtures are unrivaled.
