Using these three landscape ideas about lighting will surely help you get that extra element you have been searching for. Not only will they help boost safety at nighttime it will surely grab your neighbor’s admiration and respect.
Why? Step up safety and add an element of design
Use: Lighting along the path of your main walkway
A path light can be used to light up your landscape and pave the way for your guests when they come to visit. Use the landscape or garden beds bordering your main walking path. Not only does this add dimension it makes it very welcoming.
Why? Showcase a beautiful landscape
Use: Flood lights to shadow and up light
Do you have a beautiful tree in your front yard? A flood or spotlight can be used to highlight it in your front yard. If you have a tree that is in front of a wall, using a floodlight can create a shadow effect. Or, say you want to use it in freestanding foliage, use it to create the perfect focal point.
Why? Give a blank wall depth
Use: Illuminate it in light
Wall lights are a simple solution to create more depth in your landscape. You can line them up to highlight the texture and create an inviting light. If you wanted to illuminate all of it flood lights would be a better choice. With all the beautiful choices of wall lights out there we recommend the multiple wall light option. Regardless if you have an extravagant terrain or your landscape is minimal, obtaining the right layers in your outside lighting plan will have all the neighbors turning heads.
