Introduction

Landscape lighting is also known as garden lighting. These lights are used for illuminating public landscapes as well as private gardens. Landscape lighting fixtures are installed for enhancing the landscape, for providing nighttime aesthetics, safety, security, and accessibility. The concept of landscape lights has been in existence since ancient times. Earlier candles, wood, torches (burned with plant- animal oil) and lanterns were used for lighting the landscape. From 19th century onwards gas and from 20th century onwards electricity were being used for lighting the landscapes. In the beginning of the 21st century, the conventionally generated electricity was the main source for lighting the landscape lights. Then due to the increasing cost of electricity, increase in the demand for electricity, concern for global warming and rising accessibility of sustainable landscape light designs, new innovative ways for lighting the landscape while reducing the energy consumption have been emerged. These innovations include the use of low voltage equipment, employing solar energy, and using energy efficient lamp bulbs (xenon bulbs, fiber optics). Nowadays, landscape lights can be powered in many ways, like conventional electricity, solar energy, and rechargeable batteries.
