When deciding where to place lights you need to assess the elements on your property such as trees flower beds statues and walkways. Which structures should be highlighted and which should be downplayed? You obviously want to make sure pathways are well lit for safety but you also want to show off that rose bush you painstakingly nurtured or the fountain you couldnt wait to bring home. Trash cans and other eyesores you will want to keep hidden. You are painting a picture with light in your yard just as you painted one when you landscaped. The key is to create a balance highlighting a few spots and providing lighting transitions between them. While there are no rules careful thought and planning are required as too much lighting creates a busy panorama and too little leaves an unfinished portrait.
This lighting should have the dual purpose of not only being a safety factor but a beautiful entertainment function as well. Floodlights are a good choice for lighting your deck area and tube lighting works well under the handrails. Landscape lighting design ideas usually come from some of the areas of your garden you are very proud of such as unusual plants sculpted bushes tall trees or a tropical flower garden. You not only enjoy these areas during the day but want to enjoy also at night so you need to place the lighting to highlight these areas. Some of the bushes and tall trees might look very mysterious with the use of a spotlight placed on the ground with the light facing the sky.
