For a small garden, garden lighting can be done by yourself. The most important of the arrangement of light in a small park is the choice of lighting, security, cabling installation, and determine the point you want to lit.

Use low voltage lamp
For outdoor purposes such as garden, use lights and house lights with water resistant specifications. The types of lamp can be incandescent or phosphorescence lamp. Lamp and house lamp are usually made with particular specification, so resistant to splashes of water and therefore not easily shorted.

There are Garden lighting devices with low voltage (12 volts) and high voltage (220volt). The best choice depends on the needs. For security reasons, you should select the garden lighting device with low voltage, especially if the lights will be placed in the water. This prevents a fatal accident if there is current leakage. Low voltage have small potential to harm the body and cause a fire.

Cable matter is also important. Use the appropriate cable. Choice of cable types is important because it related to the supply voltage electrical energy. The longer the cable, the greater the chance of drop voltage. For small garden with little number of light points, you can use fibers or wire cable with size 1 mm2. Large Garden requires a longer cable, it is better to use a 1.5 mm2 cable wire. Hope this information can helps.

It is true that lampshades are made to accentuate the lamps whether it is a ceiling, lamp, table lamp or floor lamp, but we have to remember that on choosing the lampshades we should not remove the function of lamp in the room. Therefore, on choosing the lampshades make sure that we consider both aesthetic function of lampshades and the function of the lamp. Here are some tips to help us finding the perfect lampshades.
First, we have to make a measurement. No matter what our lamp type, we have to choose lampshades that cover at least two- third of our lamp. With that way, the light of the lamp can still spread to the room and we will get perfect sized lampshades. Second, we have to think about the lampshades diameter. We can determine the perfect diameter by looking at the lamp location. Make sure that we are not choosing too wide diameter for lamps that are located in a high traffic area.
Last, but not least, we have to choose the perfect color and pattern. On the choosing process, make sure that we adjust it with the decoration and the wall paint, so our lampshades will not look odd. Playing with texture and pattern can be a good idea, but we have to adjust it with our other decorations and whole room atmosphere.
