Deciding on outdoor lighting is one of the most crucial parts of making your landscape work. Some homeowners settle on the typical lamppost and neglect their creative side. Break free from the ordinary with these five creating lighting ideas from Sherwood Gardens Landscape Design & Development.
Whether vintage or new, lighting up the entryway with decorative lanterns gives your exterior a dramatic look and feel. You can have them hanging, sitting on your outdoor table, or even strewn across your landscaping for a distinct look when you host an intimate gathering with your friends and family.
Overhead String Lighting
After getting your landscaper to turn your backyard into a holding court for festive occasions, you should light it up with overhead string lighting. It effectively illuminates your outdoor area without competing with the starry skyscape.
While an outdoor fire pit isn’t a new way of lighting your backyard, its appeal and use never go out of style. The cozy warmth and soft light complements any exterior design and architecture. Plus, it’s the perfect light to highlight any occasion, whether you’re going big for a party or not.
Deck Railing Lights
Attaching subtle lighting to your deck railing, posts and stairs create a dynamic exterior. In addition, it also allows your family members or visiting friends to walk around at night in safety.
Spend a day with your family making firefly lights to include in your landscaping design. You can recycle old glass bottles to create solar garden lighting and insert LED lights into them. It’s a fun project to do with your kids. However, you should have your landscaper inspect your lights’ safety to prevent hazardous issues.
