How to Design Park Landscape Lighting?

Parks are public places for people’s leisure and entertainment at night, and their safety and nighttime travel experience are very important parts. Therefore, a good park lighting design not only needs to illuminate the park, but also needs to be designed according to the characteristics of the park to create a nighttime atmosphere in the park. There are many scenic spots in the park including, flowers, plants, trees, statues, rockeries, lakes, etc. Different landscapes should exhibit their own characteristics and be coordinated with the overall park style. The lighting effect of scenery is achieved through the lighting design of lamps. There are various types of lamps, and their shapes, characteristics, and functions are also different. In the process of designing park landscape lighting, we need to choose appropriate lamps based on the desired effect of landscape lighting.

How to Design Park Landscape Lighting?

1. Clarify the theme and style of the park. Do not set up lighting fixtures in a general manner, but combine the characteristics of the park’s garden landscape. By comparing the strength and weakness of landscape lighting, hidden and visible lighting, and virtual and real lighting, create a clear and hierarchical lighting design plan, and layout lighting fixtures based on the principle of best reflecting the landscape effect under the lighting, highlighting the characteristics, and making the night scene of the park more orderly and distinctive.

2. The direction and color temperature of lighting should be based on increasing the atmosphere of trees, shrubs, and flowers. Plants exhibit different colors when illuminated by different light colors. White light can naturally express the natural color of plants, making people feel clear and distinct, reflecting the sense of hierarchy of plants. However, high-pressure sodium lamps are better used for yellow plants that need to highlight the color sensation. Do not only pursue brightness, but also brighten everything.

3. Pay attention to issues such as reflection in the lighting of water surfaces and waterscape landscapes. The park’s water features include open water areas, fountains, streams, artificial pools, and waterfalls. The lighting design of the water landscape mainly involves beautifying the water surface, reflecting the water surface through the lighting of the railings and trees on the shore. The real scene and reflections in the water complement each other. At the same time, personnel protection and lighting in dangerous areas involving water should be done well to avoid accidental entry and falling into the water. For waterfront areas, adequate protective measures such as guardrails should be taken.

4. Park lighting fixtures should consider their service life and maintainability. As a public facility, the convenience of the service life and maintainability of lighting fixtures is crucial for the operation cost of the park, and their high safety also provides safety guarantees for visitors.
