Landscape Lighting Tools and Tips

First of all, it’s important to remember that when it comes to lighting your outdoor landscape, a little goes a long way. That’s because your eyes need less light outdoors to see light, shadow, and pattern. To plan your outdoor lighting, walk around your yard at night and envision how and when you want to use your spaces.

Art and Light: Adding Personality to Your Lighting Design

Homeowners often don’t think about outdoor lighting as a way to have fun and add touches of whimsy by illuminating artwork, signage, and water features. Having a custom-made piece of art in the garden allows you to really stand apart from your neighbors. You can emphasize the security, safety, and privacy of your property without sacrificing aesthetically-pleasing lighting and creative design.

The Secret To Outdoor Lighting: Accent Lighting

Outdoor lighting is very different from indoor lighting, as most surfaces are dark and do not reflect light well. Positioning and shielding are more important in outdoor landscape lighting in order to prevent glare. Accent lighting can showcase your property’s standout features.

Lighting Pathways and Walkways

You already know the power and impact of landscape lighting on your home and garden areas. But don’t forget – visitors and guests need to make their way to your front door or around your property. These crucial areas also deserve your time and attention, and we’ve put together some suggestions on how to approach lighting your pathways and walkways for maximum effect.
