Tips To Make The Most Of Landscape Lighting

If you take pride in your property and decorate it with tasteful trees, shrubbery and flowers, then why not enjoy the space by night as well as by day? Landscape lighting is growing in popularity and has become very affordable.

The right outdoor lighting will allow you to enjoy your garden after dark and it provides better safety and security. In this article, we've got some great tips about installing and placing lighting to enhance the outside beauty of your home.

When purchasing landscape lighting, decide what you want to light, select the appropriate lighting techniques, select the appropriate lighting fixtures and accessories, select the appropriate bulbs, and choose the power supply. It's a good idea to draw a rough plan on paper for a shopping list or take some digital pictures. The best way to decide where the lights should go is to go into the yard at night with a good flashlight and try lighting different areas from different angles.

Positioning the lights correctly is essential to effective lighting. Stunning effects can be achieved by using a mixture of techniques using one or more of them. Up lighting is often used to accent a tree with the fixture at the base. Down lighting is the same idea only the fixture is up high and shines down.

This is a great way to show off flower beds, paths or steps. Spotlighting creates a focal point by illuminating an object like a fountain. One of the most dramatic techniques you can use is back lighting. By placing the light behind a subject it will appear in silhouette.

This can be an extremely effective technique with dramatically shaped trees, shrubs or garden ornaments. Finally, you can highlight a feature by using cross lighting which is shining two fixtures from different directions to add dimension. Remember to be considerate of your neighbors and do not shine the brightness into their windows.

Installing outdoor lighting can be tricky business, so be careful. If you don't have the knowledge to work with electricity safely, then spend a little extra and get an electrician to do the work. Solar ones are a popular choice because they are easy to install, require no wiring and won't increase your use of electricity since sunlight charges a solar panel that powers the light at night.

Shop around since solar ones can often be found on sale and at discount stores. If your landscape is complicated or expansive, then consider hiring a landscaper or professional outdoor lighting designer to help.

Outdoor lighting can make a huge difference in the appearance and value of your home. Before you go crazy and light up your property like a Christmas tree, remember that less is definitely more when it comes to landscape lighting.

Choose the areas that you want to highlight, select attractive fixtures, and direct the lights so that they effectively illuminate the best features on your property. Once you do these things, you'll end up with a tasteful, polished looking yard that will be comfortable as well as attractive.
