Whether it’s the dead of winter, or the middle of the summer, landscape lighting can help your property shine. Whether it’s emphasis on your home’s facade, or simply providing a safe pathway after a fun summer party, landscape lighting is something that can be used all year long. Not sure which type is best for your home? We outline the different types of landscape lighting.
If you’re looking to make your home stand out from others in your neighborhood, walkway lights are a good place to start. These lights will help illuminate walkways, along with any hazard that might exist along them. If you have friends or family who are susceptible to falls or trips, walkway lights will help you illuminate any paths.
They are also easy-to-install, and are usually powered through solar lighting, which can help you avoid high-energy costs.
Floodlights are high-powered lights that shine bright light into a wide area. These are commonly used in backyards. Floodlights can help prevent unwanted visitors from entering your property, or provide plenty of light if you go to work while it is dark outside. While floodlights provide bright lighting to your area, keep your neighbors in mind when you have them installed. Usually, most homeowners install a motion sensor for the light to only turn on when needed.
Accent lights should be used in areas where you want guests to notice something specific. These lights are commonly used to showcase an entire house at night, or to light up trees or sculptures surrounding your property. Accent lights can be either angled up or down to point out a plant, tree, or other fixture. You will want at least three times more light on the piece you want to access than what surrounds it.
