A garden center has a lot of different visitors – families visiting the garden center to make the children happy as well as the more plant enthusiastic visitors looking for the plant to fulfil their collection of plants at home. One thing these different visitors have in common is that they want a garden center which is able to present the plants in a nice and clear way. This wish can among other things be accommodated with the right lighting solution capable of supporting the exhibition of plant as well as the flow in the garden center.
