If your pond is beautiful in the daytime, imagine how spectacular it could be at night with proper lighting. Lighting is an often overlooked aspect of pond design and should be considered for all ponds even during construction. Sometimes as little as a single well placed light makes all the difference.
If you have a waterfall or watercourse, try uplighting the falling water. Hide a floodlight along the side of the pond to illuminate fish and Koi for a dramatic effect, or illuminate marginal plants from below the water surface to complement your landscape lighting.
