Have your eye on a beautiful glass outdoor wall lighting fixture but live in a place where dust, wind, or rain are part of your outdoor vocabulary? You may want to consider a more enclosed outdoor lighting fixture. The good news is that there's a scale to help you figure out how waterproof/dustproof a given outdoor lighting fixture is. This rating is call an "IP Code", which stands for "Ingress Protection", and is essentially a rating of how protected the wall light is from external elements like rain and dust. There's separate scales for both dust and water, but for rain protection, you'll probably want a water rating of at least 3-4 on the scale.
Traditional incandescent bulbs use a lot of energy to produce light and over 90% of the energy is wasted as heat. Whereas, the energy-efficient light bulbs use about 20%-80% less energy than the traditional incandescent, saving a lot of money.
Torches come in bamboo, brass, or copper. Most contain a reservoir for fuel, such as citronella oil, and a wick that you ignite. If you are not comfortable playing with fire, you can find electric ones as well. Torches can be up to six feet tall, or short enough to provide an interesting centerpiece to your outdoor table.
Sketching the garden refers to sketching the existing lights, trees, shrubs, benches and of course, buildings. Ah, and let's not forget the vegetation and rest of decoration in the garden as well. Note that each of these 'items' will either absorb light or reflect it. Hence, you need to estimate the height of each of them, particularly when it comes to the foliage.
