One feature of any landscaping design which always requires due care and attention is lighting. The fact that there are an almost unlimited number of different lighting types, numerous uses for lighting, and multiple ways in which lighting can be used in landscaping design, is positive. However, it also creates a problem in the sense that you have to narrow down so many choices.
If you want to have lighting in your garden and want your landscapers to include them in any landscape design they create, then you both have decisions to make. That being said, you might choose to hand over all the decision making to them and to include what lighting they think is best. However, would it not be better if you had some input, as ultimately it is you who will be using your new garden, not your landscaper?
