3 Tips for Using Hinkley Outdoor Lighting for Pond Lights
Date : December 13th, 2011
I feel so happy when I visit the Getty Villa in Malibu. What is my favorite feature besides the ancient art? The landscaping. Whenever, I visit the grounds, I make sure to spend at least 15 minutes to meditate on the beauty of the tranquil pond with water lilies.
Maybe you are considering creating a backyard pond.
Laguna Ponds and Pond Plants Direct have these three tips to impart.
Select a curvy rather than geometrical shape with sharp angles for better water circulation.Why? Because water can stagnate in sharp corners. This can cause a challenge in keeping algae under control. What shapes are recommended? Jelly bean and kidney shapes.
Add a pump to keep water moving to prevent the accumulation of mosquito larva. If you also select a pond location away from overhanging trees, this will reduce the water contamination by falling leaves.
Avoid highlighting hoses and pumps with accent lighting. If you spend time collecting rocks of various sizes for a natural look, you don’t want to overexpose artificial elements with landscape lighting such as hoses and pumps. Instead use 1539BS Submersible Pond Light by Hinkley Outdoor Lighting to draw attention to your floating hyacinth or Anacharis. Yellow water lilies are especially pretty at night. These plants absorb nitrates and assist in controlling algae. Why not point your accent lighting at these natural features instead?
Whether you have a 50 gallon or 3,000 gallon pond you can display colorful fish, swaying plants and graceful fountains with the help of submersible pond lights by Hinkley Outdoor Lighting.
