When you’re spending time outdoors in your backyard, the right type of lighting can really help set the mood. If your backyard could use a little extra lighting, here are seven different landscape lighting options for you to consider.
1. Pot lights
Pot lights radiate high levels of outdoor light and are also useful for holding outdoor plants and flowers. Pot lights may be placed anywhere in your backyard, but they would look especially great lining the side of a walkway or marking an entrance.
2. Glowing outdoor pool
If your backyard has a pool, then consider installing underwater lights lining the pool as well as on the pavement alongside the pool. Pool lighting can help create a relaxing and calm atmosphere perfect for a late-night swim.
3. Pergola lighting
You can make the pergola stand out by wrapping Christmas lights around it or by installing individual lights surrounding it. Also consider installing lighting on the walkway leading up to the pergola.
4. Stairway lighting
Stairway lighting not only looks nice, but can also make your backyard or front yard a little safer. Circle lights may be installed in the stairs or on the sides of the stairs. Your guests and visitors will appreciate this thoughtful detail as they enter your home.
5. Hanging tree lamps
If you’re looking to add a classical touch to your backyard, consider hanging lights in your trees. Christmas lights or a few solitary lights can really make a difference.
6. Nighttime waterfall lighting
Allow your guests to admire your waterfall at night by installing a few lights in strategic places. Install lights behind the waterfall or underwater to really give your waterfall a beautiful night time glow.
7. Christmas lights
Christmas lights are always in-season, Christmastime or not. Hang them around the frames of outdoor furniture or gates, or string them up high across your backyard. This type of lighting will help create a festive mood, whether you’re entertaining guests or enjoying the fresh air.
