When you start getting involved with outdoor lighting, you may also start to realize that it’s not as easy as it looks. It can be extremely difficult to make your backyard look like those landscapes in the magazines. It may seem like there are certain elements of your landscape that simply can’t be lit properly. But the experts are holding all the secrets! Read on to find out how to light your landscape like a professional.
Guide the Way
On footpaths, you’re going to need a very specific kind of lighting. The bulbs themselves should be hidden and producing an ambient light that covers the walking area. To get the most out of your pathway lighting, make sure you’re spacing them out and avoiding straight lines. You want an overall glow, not an airport runway.
Shine the Spotlight
If you’ve got one particularly large feature, like a huge tree or a waterfall, put a spotlight on it. At night, this beautiful aspect of your landscape won’t fade into the background. It’ll stand out against the rest, so that its importance is state properly.
Line Your Beds
Flower beds should have a long string of LED lights where the grass begins. If they’re tucked under properly, it’ll create a beautiful glow that covers your entire flower bed. You should be able to pin these lights in place with landscape staples so they don’t move around too much.
For dining and eating areas, you can light up the outdoors with a cluster of candles. It can add a beautiful romantic ambiance. Your lighting will be greatly complimented by this little touch of softness.
