We have seen ponds just come to life with the correct lighting. If you plan to install lighting systems you will need a plan. There is an ample supply of low voltage 12V lighting on the market that can be used in and around the pond. Don't forget you will need to use an approved GFI (Ground Fault Interrupter) Never operate any electrical equipment around a pond unless it is connected to a GFI. LEDís and Halogen lighting are pretty much your choices in pond Lighting. Each has their own advantages, LEDís are usually more expensive but use less energy whereas Halogen lighting is generally less costly but they are a little more energy demanding. I cannot stress enough that you buy underwater or landscape lighting from trusted manufacturers such as Alpine, Atlantic, Aquascape or Laguna I recommend these because they are very good companies and they design their lights to last.
