Often outdoor lighting is added for practical reasons, like safety and security. While these are excellent reasons to add walkway lights, porch lighting or backyard floodlights, landscape lighting can offer other benefits. Installing outdoor lighting can increase your entertaining space for nighttime gatherings, while also adding beauty to your yard. This year, light up the night with strategically placed lighting.
Patio and Pool Lighting
Nothing beats relaxing with friends and family on the back patio on a summer night. Lighting up your patio and pool extends your entertaining time from day to night, making it safe for late night gatherings. Make sure to add enough lighting to illuminate steps, patio edges and other possible tripping points for your guests.
Night Time Beauty
Show off your landscape design, even in the dark, with spot lights aimed at your focal areas. Your water features and plant life can be appreciated in a new way with shadows and depth. Try using ground lights to beam the light upwards, paired with high-positioned lights to flood light at a downward angle. It can create a dramatic effect in your yard for those late nights on the patio.
Fire features are a great way to add sparkle to your patio at night, giving off the moving glow only fire can create. These are especially magnificent when added near a pool, waterfall or other water feature, playing off the water for a glimmering light show.
