Want To Enhance Your Landscaping? Add Landscape Lighting


If you love to landscape and have been working in your yard to create beautiful flower gardens, rock gardens, etc., this looks great during the day. You should also consider making your landscaping look great at night, which you can do by adding some landscape lighting. Below are some types of lighting you can choose from. 

Install Pathway Landscape Lighting

If you have pathways in your yard, such as to lead to a front door or a patio, installing pathway landscape lighting will be a good choice. This will make it much easier for you and anyone visiting you to see where they are walking at night, so they do not fall. 

There are different types of pathway lighting available. One type is the classic path lights which are popular for many people They are natural-looking so instead of the light being noticed, your landscaping will. There are also decorative path lights which are much more noticeable You can choose from a variety of designs, colors, and more. This can make your path look interesting and unique. These lights generally have shorter posts but will provide enough light.

There are also bollard pathway lights which are towers and look much different than other types. The tower is tall so is easily noticed by anyone walking down the path. They are available in a variety of designs from contemporary to much more ornate. If you are on a budget, there are simple solar pathway lights that you basically stick into the ground along the pathway. 

Light up Trees

If you have a lot of trees in your yard, consider adding landscape lighting to them. These lights are much like Christmas tree lights that you wrap around the tree. You can also wrap the lights around the tree trunk to make even more light. Add the lights to only a few trees or all the trees in your yard. 

Choose uplighting for your trees which is placing a light near the tree that shines upward. This makes the trees stand out even more. These are lamps that stake into the ground or can be installed so that they are flush with the ground so the lights are not seen.

There are many other ways to add outdoor pathway landscape lighting to your home. The best thing is to hire a company to install the landscape lighting for you.  This will ensure that whatever you choose is installed correctly and safely.

Understanding Landscaping Planning

About a year ago, I realized that part of the reason the plants in my yard kept dying was the fact that they were planted in the wrong places. I didn't pay much attention to which plants needed certain amounts of light, and it was costing them their lives. Several of the plants were really struggling to live, and it was really hard to see. I realized that if I ever wanted to make things right, I would need to create a landscaping plan that would work well for the natural landscape of my yard. This blog is all about understanding landscaping.
