Plan where you want the light to go before you start digging

Planning the placement of landscape lighting is an essential step in creating the backyard oasis of your dreams. Before you actually get to the installation process, it’s important to decide exactly where you want each light to go, and how far apart they should be placed. By taking the time to plot out your design beforehand, you can make sure that each light will have its desired effect without any unwelcome surprises once everything has been installed. After all, making sure you have perfect landscape lighting for your outdoor space is one of the best investments you can make in creating a beautiful environment for years to come.

Choose energy-efficient LED bulbs for your landscape lights

Consider using energy-efficient LED bulbs when illuminating outdoor spaces. Attractive, efficient and reliable, LED lights are now a popular go-to option for many landscaping professionals. Not only will you be reducing your monthly electric bill by making the switch to LED painlessly – without compromising aesthetic appeal – but you’ll also be contributing to a greener planet with every bulb. Look for reputable manufacturers of LED lights when selecting the right bulb for your landscape lighting – it may take a little research, but the effort is worth it in the long run!

Use a variety of light fixtures to create different effects

When designing a landscape lighting scheme, using a variety of light fixtures is an excellent way to create multiple effects. By carefully selecting different types of fixtures, such as path lights, accent lights, and up-lights, it’s possible to target specific areas for greater attention or focus. Varying the placement of light fixtures can allow for better illumination in areas that naturally receive less sunlight or cast interesting patterns for eye-catching silhouettes. Increasing the spread of light across your landscape can be achieved with delicate LED strip lights and spotlights which act like stars in a night sky. With thoughtful consideration there are limitless possibilities to transform your landscape into something special that reflects your own personal style.

Install your landscape lights in areas where they will be most effective

Landscape lighting can transform your outdoor space and change the atmosphere of your home. Taking the time to think about where to install the lights is key, as each light should be placed strategically in areas that will have the greatest impact. When selecting an area for installation, consider where natural shadows fall and take note of any interesting elements, such as trees or shrubs, that you’d like to highlight with lighting. The right placement of landscape lights can create ambient spaces perfect for entertainment or relaxation. Picking specific areas to install will enhance the overall look and make your outdoor space stand out from your neighbors.

Be sure to follow all local ordinances when installing landscape lighting

When it comes to landscape lighting, it is important to follow all local ordinances. Not only could noncompliance of these ordinances hinder your ability to make the most out of designing with landscape lighting, but you may also be subject to fines or penalties. Proper research should be done ahead of time to ensure that all regulations are taken into account before purchasing and installing any type of lighting for the outdoors. Landscape light installation can add both beauty and value to your home and property when done properly, making it worth the effort in the end.
