Tips for Achieving the Right Landscape Lighting
No landscape is complete without lighting. A low-voltage lighting scheme highlights the best features of the property, allows it to be enjoyed in the evening and provides additional home security. When artfully designed, landscape lighting can not only extend the enjoyment of outdoor rooms but also orchestrate the mood. Here are some of the ways you can achieve the proper lighting scheme to enhance your landscape.
Uplighting for Directional Viewing
This is a popular way to spotlight elements in your landscape such as flags or large flowering trees. Simply place fixtures in or above the ground right underneath what you would like to accent, lighting it from one direction only.
Uplighting for 360° Viewing
Often achieved through in-ground fixtures, this is when an element of your landscape is lit from below to create an even light from any side. This is the lighting effect you want to create for features that will be seen from more than one viewpoint.
