Buried exterior uplights - Tips and Advice

Buried exterior lights are an ideal choice if you're looking for a way to light your outdoor space, but don't want to add any visual clutter above ground . Buried uplights, as the name suggests, are set into the floor's surface. They have long been a main stay for hotels and the commercial sector as they are a great choice for lighting pathways and decking, while not causing a trip hazard. But, as more of us begin to invest more heavily in our outdoor spaces, buried exterior lights are now also a very popular option for private homes.

 

Highlighting outdoor features with buried uplights. 

As well as providing a practical choice for lighting outdoor spaces, buried uplights can also be used to highlight features in your outdoor space which might otherwise be missed in low-light hours. Lighting a feature with a buried uplight is more discrete than using surface-mounted spotlights and floodlights as the fitting is buried in the ground and out of sight during the day. As buried uplights are mounted in the ground, they also cost more due to their robust construction and the water resistance required. Ground-mounted fittings, however, are secure and generally more aesthetically pleasing than surface-mounted lights. 

So why use a buried uplight? You should be considering buried uplights to: illuminate a static object, create a decorative light effect on a feature wall, discreetly illuminate your features, or to ensure your lighting is not tampered with.

 

Buried uplights to highlighting and illuminate trees

 If you are looking to higlight trees in your outdoor space, there are some variables worth considering before picking the perfect lighting choice for your outdoor space. Deciduous trees change shape and colour throughout the seasons, therefore using a buried uplight can make it more difficult to highlight different features throughout the year. Buried uplights offer less adjustment than surface mounted flood and spotlights and relocating the fitting a few feet to move the light from the trunk to the canopy is a not a small project. Old knurled trees, twisted willows and evergreens are an exception to this as they do not change dramatically throughout the year and a well-positioned buried uplight will highlight these features beautifully. Remember, you can also utilise different light colours in ground lights. Try cooler coloured lights on evergreen and green foliage or warmer lights on deciduous trees that take on an amber or red hue in the winter. Lamp types and the intensity, wattage, colour rendering, and lamp life need to be considered in conjunction with the object being lit, its colour and its absorption (the amount of light taken in by a surface instead of being reflected). Also take into account that an object situated at some distance from the viewpoint must be lit more brightly than one that is close to the viewer in order to achieve the same impact.
