By placing a fixture in a tree and aiming it downwards, art imitates nature by creating the tranquil appearance of light filtering through the branches on a moonlit night. When using this technique, fixtures should be hidden and positioned as high as possible. A luminaire may be positioned on the ground as well, pointed upward in order to illuminate the tree itself.
The images below represent some of the fixtures used for down lighting. Artistic Landscape Lighting Systems offers many other styles and finishes. The fixtures may be used either as path lights, accenting walkways and many other areas, or Down lights that may be turned upside down and used in trees for downlighting or moonlighting. These lights are versatile and weather resistent. Using these fixtures as either path lights, or down lights is acceptable under all conditions and allows for more versatile options.
