Consider These Lighting Options For Your Outdoor Living Space

Utilize these different types of landscape lighting.

Outdoor landscape lighting has the potential to change your property completely. If you’re interested in landscape lighting but need help figuring out where to start or which upgrades would be best for your home, keep reading to learn more about the most prevalent types of outdoor landscape lighting.


These lights often refer to a single-direction light. The brightness and area covered by the light can vary, and they frequently illuminate features such as sculptures, plants, walls, patios, and anything else you can point your lights at.

Flood Lighting 

Outdoor floodlights are valuable types of landscape lighting. They have excellent brightness and a wide coverage range, allowing them to illuminate large areas. Homeowners frequently use them to brighten driveways and patios from above.

Step Lighting 

Step lights are landscape lights installed on the walls next to the stairs or the front vertical sides of the stairs. When the sun goes low, these lights are critical for preventing tripping and tumbling down the steps.

Bollard Lighting

These outdoor lights are small posts with lights on top, with no light screen or cover. Bollard lights are one of the few outdoor landscape lighting options that shine in all directions. These can be beneficial so that people do not have to walk over your grass to reach your front door, especially at night.

String Lighting 

Finally, these outdoor lights are an excellent accent that can be strung through trees and over hardscapes. If you have a pergola or an awning, you can hang string lights from it to add to the comfortable ambiance. String lights are also ideal for softly illuminating your deck while providing a relaxing atmosphere.
