The most beautiful garden in the world can’t thrive without adequate lighting. It is worthwhile for any homeowner to plan landscape lighting. These tips will help you enhance the beauty of your garden and yard.
A walkway lined with landscape lighting is both aesthetically pleasing, as well as more secure and safe. It is generally recommended to use dim, downward-facing options for this task, as they provide illumination without creating distracting glares.
Highlight the Steps
Lighting steps will make your property more beautiful and safe, just as you line pathways with landscape lighting. Lights that are recessed into the side of each step are one option for an upscale installation, but DIY lighting can also provide a quick, temporary solution. Lights placed in glass holders are easy to assemble and move around the steps.
Aim Lights Carefully
The best landscape lighting avoids light pollution from too many sources. You can avoid over-lighting the area if you carefully aim your lights. When illuminating a wall, aim the light slightly away from the feature and almost parallel to it instead of making it face the wall directly. Light will be reflected from the wall, providing a soft glow without showering the surrounding area.
