#1: Well And Pond Lights To Make The Water Sparkle
What could be more beautiful than the shimmering sparkle of water at night? With the right well and pond lights, you can turn this beautiful feature of your landscaping into the focal point of the evening. Pond and well lights will gently illuminate the waters, allowing you to draw your guests’ eyes to these beautiful water features.
If you have a waterfall, add lights to this as well to create a sparkling cascade. Have fish in your pond? The lights will allow you to watch your finned friends swirl through the evening water and will catch the glimmer of their scales. Well and pond lights are one of our top choices for creating a landscape feature that truly stands out.
#2: Tall And Elegant Lanterns To Set The Ambiance
Do you like to create a mood in your garden that brings to mind images of floating fairies and mystical creatures? Use tall and elegant lanters to set this tone in your garden. Place the lanterns along your pathway and choose a soft lighting to craft the perfect feel. Opt for an elegant style of lantern if you are shooting for a whimsical feel.
Take the ambiance one step further with gas lanterns. The flickering light these lanterns produce will turn your garden into a truly stunning land of imagination and whimsy. Tall lanterns make the perfect addition to landscaping that features an array of flowers and winding vines.
#3: Shrub And Bush Lighting To Create A Soft And Subtle Effect
If you want to create a softer lighting effect, you can hide your lights under shrubs and other bushy plants. This will allow you to add enough lighting to create visibility in your yard at night without overwhelming your guests with too much illuminance.
Install ground lighting underneath select bushes and trees along your pathways to add this subtle lighting effect.
#4: Gentle Step Lighting To Lead The Way
If your landscaping features an array of steps, the addition of step lighting will help guide your guests through your gardens and yard. Step lighting is particularly beautiful when paired with stone steps. The lights will play off of the uneven texture of the stone, leaving deep shadows and points that please the eye.
