Landscape Lighting – 5 Great Ideas


One well-hidden secret within the landscape trade is that difference landscape lighting can make to your home. Adding lighting to the grounds of your business or residence can really make the landscape pop. For a relatively small investment, you will increase the beauty and value of an outdoor area.

Landscape Lighting – 5 Great Ideas:

Work with Lighting Specialists

Look for people who can work with both elaborate and simple designs. For instance, the certified lighting specialists at Landscape Solutions & Design are a local best. They work with Vista Professional Outdoor Lighting, one of the best lighting products on the market.

Try Up Lighting

As the name suggests up lighting is using light to achieve an upward light effect. This means securing a mounted well type light and tilting it upwards. Then, focus the light on objects such as trees, gazebos or shrubs. Basically, any object standing higher within the landscape. The result of this illuminating effect can be quite stunning and dramatic.

Try Down Lighting

This is another gorgeous technique offering stunning lighting effects. You simply place a floodlight or spotlight somewhere high up. This can include a tree, on a pole or on a wall. Then, project the light downward. The result is a gorgeous moonlight beam effect across your garden, perfect for the upcoming spring months.

Shadow Lighting

For example, when you have a large open area, like a wall, place a light behind it. Additionally, placing a light in front of an object, like a shrub or bush, can create a soft shadow.

Path lighting

Illuminating paths adds safety to your home or business. The pools of light created around your walkway and surrounding garden can make your landscape extra stunning, even romantic.
