Normally landscape lighting is added after the landscaping has been completed. With this in mind it would be a good idea to lay conduits or ducts into your garden. This would minimize any trench digging when it came time to run your low voltage wiring. Map out where you think you will want your light fittings and lay conduits or ducts to suit.
Define illuminance on three levels (approximately, not obsessively, allowing to the high side) 40, 70, 100 foot candles, or lumens/foot squared [or fc, lm/ft squared, respectively, equal and used synonymously throughout this article].
When possible, look up a photograph of Zion National Park by Hiroji Kubota. Because Kubota uses the contrast of shadowed peaks beyond, he is able to emphasize the surface of the lit mountain in the foreground. Can you feel the drama that is built by this interplay of light and dark? Here is a little landscape photography tip that you can use when you are out looking for a shot. Simply be observant of areas of shadow and try to build them into your story.
