Dramatic Uplighting Behind the Trees
When you need to add more light to your landscape at night, consider these clever ideas. These concepts range from built-in lights that would be great to add at an upcoming renovation or new home build to easy do-it-yourself ideas that you could accomplish in one afternoon. There are fresh ideas for lighting your home, garden, pathways, and driveway.
Garden lights range from the delicate, like the teapot with fairy lights, to the bold and dramatic, like the oversized globe planters. Many of the garden lights are easy to install, with just a little hanging time and some extension cords. Solar lights are even easier to install and can be obtained at any home improvement store.
Some of these lights are concealed in the landscape, like the recessed lights along the brick pavers. Another clever lighting idea is to purchase lights that look like garden stones and scatter the lights among the natural stones for a subtle effect.
Many of the built-in lighting ideas are great safety enhancers. These keep your family and guests from tripping when it gets dark outside. A little lighting goes a long way in enhancing the safety and beauty of your landscape at night.
