Fluorescent lighting has been around a long time and you may not think it is that efficient. Old fluorescent lighting certainly isn't T12 and T8 tubes and their drivers can be horribly wasteful, sometimes using double the amount of power they are rated at. However T5 fluorescent tubes coupled with a modern ballast is remarkably efficient, almost as efficient in fact as LED lighting. Modern warm start ballasts have also increased reliability and allowed for extending the life of the tubes which can now reach as much as 30,000 or 40,000 hours. Modern drivers also operate at high frequency, unlike their older counterparts, which mean there is no longer a noticeable flicker with fluorescent lights. Fluorescent lights do also suffer from early failures, and because they rely on a filament the more often they are turned on and off the shorter their life will be; this means turning them on and of with presence detection to reduce their use and save money on your bill could backfire when you have to frequently replace the tubes. If you do go down this route make sure the drivers feature warm start and don't set the controls to frequently turn the lights on and off.
Accent lighting is used mainly to highlight specific garden areas or objects, picking them out from the rest. You might want to use this type of lighting around a swimming pool or building or to light up aspects or features in your garden (e.g. a particularly attractive shrub or tree). General lighting (sometimes referred to as ambient light) fills in between task and accent lighting and is the sort of lighting you might choose to illuminate paths and work areas in your garden. For some areas you might want to use it in combination with accent lighting, switching between the two depending upon how you are using your garden. Down-lighting & up-lighting will, as the name suggests, cast light downwards or upwards. Wall lights are often used as down-lights to illuminate a flowerbed or a table that's adjacent to a wall. Up-lighting can be used to great effect in the garden under trees or statues to create special effects by profiling particular curves or angles.
Induction lights, like LED and fluorescent are instant strike and re-strike which can be a massive bonus over some other technologies, it also means these technologies are suitable use with lighting controls. All of these technologies also have dimmable options which can used in conjunction with lighting controls for more flexibility in your lighting and also to reduce power usage further.
