The winter months severely limit your ability to enjoy your yard. If you work, by the time you get home, the sun has already set! Fortunately, there’s outdoor lighting that can help extend the enjoyment of your lawn into the night. But are you getting the most out of your outdoor lighting? Four Seasons has some tips for you to make sure you are!
How to Make the Most of Your Outdoor Lighting
Landscaping with outdoor lighting, or “nightscaping,” is a little trickier than standard hardscaping or softscaping. But, because of the nature and flexibility of lights, you have a lot more leeway to experiment with what works best for your yard. However, here are a few things we would suggest:
- Light your walkways. Not only will this make your yard easier to traverse, but it will also show off the architecture of your yard.
- Use layers of light. You can really make your yard a beautiful, well-lit place by using different types of lights to highlight your yard’s features. By combining spotlights and lights that point from the ground directly upwards, you can really make your yard pop.
- Don’t be too symmetrical. Don’t turn your yard into a landing strip! Balance your lights across your yard to create a unique field of light that fits perfectly with your yard.
If you follow these tips, you’ll be well on your way to creating a beautiful nightscape that will allow you to enjoy your yard all year long! And since our lights are low-voltage and energy efficient, and only use LED bulbs, you won’t have to worry about your outdoor lighting costing you a fortune.
