A few evenings ago we sat out on our back deck and watched the full moon rise over the Wasatch Front Range spreading moonlight over the Salt Lake Valley. That light emitted a soft glow on all the landscape features in the yard. To our pleasant surprise we noticed how this actually enhanced our existing lighting system. This natural light from our Earth’s satellite travelled 240,000 miles entering the atmosphere surrounding the Earth filtering the original light as it embraced our property. A mystic quality was created throughout the landscape and we realized how effective carefully placed landscape lighting fixtures could be. They can provide a beautiful backdrop that actually enhances our landscape/hardscape lighting and produces a depth of field to our nightscape experience.
The facsimile of natural moonlight is created by positioning an appropriate down light high above the lawn/garden area and diffusing that light down through your tree canopy. This creates soft shadowing patterns and a low level of even ambient illumination throughout your landscaped property. Balancing the moon lighting being generated from above is a delicate integration with the multitude of light fixtures being utilized to light individual garden features and pathways. If you are considering this design integration in your utah landscape lighting project, you may want to consider collaborating with a landscape lighting expert.
