One of the latest trends in landscape lighting design is the globe light. They come in various sizes, can be used in a range of applications such as post lamp lights, landscape bedding lights, tree lights and even floating pool lights. The globes were introduced by a company out of Germany called Moonlight Inc. and have won many awards for their shatterproof polyethylene design and functionality. The globes are available in four sizes: 10″, 14″, 22″ and 30″ diameter and are also available in half globes. The globes are also available in many different colors and designs that can really add some creativity and life to your landscape.
Floating, cordless globes are great for events like pool parties because they add such a creative, modern element to the landscape but are easily removed and stored for later use. Another application would be to attach globes in mature trees for adding extra overhead light to the garden. Since the globes can be hard wired, plugged in or cordless and they come in a variety of colors and designs, the possible applications are endless. One obvious garden application would be in a Japanese garden or in the modern, minimalistic garden.
Both styles use basic shapes and simple lines to define spaces and the globe light adds an both a design and functional aspect to both of these landscape design styles. In addition to providing light and creativity to the landscape, the globes also come with the option of speakers installed in the globe providing sound in 360 degrees, which makes them perfect for entertaining guests.
The smaller 10″ globes can be used in applications like deck, patio and table lighting as well as for lighting pedestrian paths and driveways. If you choose to use the globe lights in the garden they come with a spike that allows for anchoring and security. They also have a 30 day money back guarantee so if the user is not satisfied, he or she can get their money back. In addition, he globes also are available in half domes and come with color filters which allow for variation in colors.
The only negative being reported is that some globes have leaked water in to the globe shorting the battery's life span. It's not sure whether the user or manufacturer is at fault here. Overall, this is a great way to help create a great atmosphere for outdoor living environments.
