Invest in garden lighting. Nothing animates a garden quite like good-quality lighting. This spectacular photo says it all. There are a few things to consider before light installation. Do your research with regard to technology, annual utility cost, and fixture and bulb life. LED lighting has come a long way in just the last couple of years and is extremely cost effective over time. Buy the best-quality lighting you can afford. Cheaper lighting will end up costing you more in the long run, in terms of both replacements and energy use. Most important, decide which focal points should be illuminated and which ones are better left to daylight. There is a fine line between just enough lighting and too much. Consider the seductive beauty of shadows and darkness to gain the most from lighting your garden. I've seen way too many DIY lighting projects that end up looking like the Las Vegas strip. If you aren't gifted with an eye for design, please consider having your system designed and installed by a licensed professional with whose work you are familiar.More: Find outdoor lighting pros on HouzzThe 3 Top Ways to Light Up Your Landscape

Sculpture does not have to be limited to engineered pieces of stone, metal or ceramic. Notice how this spectacular maple takes on the role of sculpture when appropriately illuminated. Many artists are drawn to sculptural trees, such as Japanese maples and conifers, and employ the art of pruning. For the artist there may not be a right or wrong way to prune. The same type of tree may be pruned differently to fit a certain site, to star in a certain vignette.

Don’t overlook the opportunity to view a specimen tree as a living sculpture. This spectacular maple resembles storm clouds rolling in over the horizon. Properly lit at night, it commands the attention it deserves.

Distinguishing traits. With its soft delicate feathery foliage, sweeping fluid form, and dazzling seasonal color, there aren't many ornamental trees more recognizable or desired than Japanese maple. Depending on the cultivar or variety, the growth habit can vary from a more rounded and upright tree, to spreading or even weeping in form. Japanese maple loses its leaves in winter, as with all maples, but is proceeded by a striking display of fall color in hues ranging from golden bronzes and yellows to rich reds and deep purples.

A Japanese maple can be grown as a multi-stemmed tree, like this extremely mature specimen, or trained as a single trunk. The variation in Japanese maple’s form makes as equally interesting a garden feature once it drops it leaves for the season.
