Tips for Updating or Installing Outdoor Lighting
Not sure where to start when trying to install or update landscape lighting? A great way to start is simply by walking out into your yard or property at night and determining the specific areas that would benefit from being highlighted. Remember that you are night trying to light the entire exterior; this would result in an unpleasant “ballpark effect,” as the DIY Network puts it. Rather, you are trying to achieve a dynamic lighting design that shows off your property’s best features. So think less is more.
When it comes to shopping for the actual lights, think about what will best suit your personality and the style of your property. Recessed lights, post lights and flood lights are among some of the most popular, but these can come in a variety of styles. As the DIY Network guide suggests, “Don’t be afraid to experiment either. Play around with the design. You can certainly move the lights around if you change your mind.”
