Light it Up: How to Landscape with Lighting

Landscape with Lighting

You could spend days, weeks, or months on landscaping to make sure your yard is as pretty as a picture. The lawns could be manicured, the flower beds stunning, and with beautiful features such as water fountains and ponds. Come nightfall, all you see is black. You should be able to enjoy your landscaping at every time of the day – not just when the sun’s out. And here’s how.

Solar Path Lighting

Not only does solar path lighting help guide your way at nightfall, but it can make your yard a far more attractive place once the sun disappears for the evening. Path lighting is affordable, effortless to purchase in bulk, and requires no effort to install. All you have to do is stab the staked lights into the earth at even intervals.

Tip: Purchase more than you need, as it’s not uncommon to receive ‘duds’ in a box. Keep a receipt handy for returns!

Tree Lighting

If you are blessed to own some well-established trees that stand proudly in your yard, then enhance them for night appeal. You can buy specific lighting for trees known as ‘moonlighting’ which offers the effect of the moon shining through the trees. It not only looks stunning but illuminates both the tree and the areas surrounding it. What’s more, it’s affordable and can be the final touch your landscaping plan requires.
