You invest a good deal of time and money in your landscaping, so you should expect to enjoy it during the day and the night. With the right outdoor lighting, entertaining and just enjoying your outdoor areas can last well beyond sundown.
There’s a lot to consider before investing in outdoor lighting. What do you want the focus of your lighting to be? Highlighting? Up-lighting? Path lighting? Or maybe it’s a combination of these and other factors. Perhaps there are certain design elements that you wish to feature, like a fountain or an outdoor structure. Or maybe you need to address pockets of darkness in your landscape.
You’ll want to consider these questions and many others. A few additional issues to take into account include:
- Views from indoors – What will your landscape look like from inside your home?
- Focal points – Are there particular trees, water features, or a gazebo that you would like to highlight?
- Sense of depth – Illuminating pathways, landscaped beds, and the house itself will lend a feeling of depth to the property.
- Ambient light – Besides spotlighting features, you can create an atmospheric feel to your outdoor space with a general ambient lighting palette.
