If you spent the early spring preparing the beautiful landscape of your backyard, you will want to enjoy that space in the evenings throughout the summer as well! The right lighting style can make all the difference for your landscape, creating an evening look that works seamlessly with your design. Show off the best of your landscape design with a soft glow around your deck, pool, or garden with these easy ideas to light up your landscape during summer months.
Light Up Your Hardscape
By adding lights along pathways and your driveway, you can guide your guests through the walkways of your space with soft lighting around your hardscaping. Lighting in this particular space gives you even more opportunities to get creative with your lighting styles. As you light up your driveway or the perimeter of your home, it is important to remember that a little light can go a long way with accessorizing your landscape.
Get Creative with Pool Lighting
A pool or other water features in your yard are a great start for getting creative with how you design your lights, as they allow you to incorporate water into your lighting accessories. For a glowy and distinct look around your pool, up-lighting the surrounding area with smaller lights or lights in your landscaping for a more subtle look near your pool at night.
Let Your Garden Glow
To make your flowers and trees glow around your space, consider adding lighting to the perimeter of your flower beds or gardens for a soft glow on a summer night. This is a great way to eliminate the harsh lighting of a flood light on your deck so that you and your guests can enjoy both your deck and the natural lighting of the night throughout the summer.
Add Stylish and Functional Deck Lighting
Not only does deck lighting add to the aesthetic of a soft glow around your yard on a summer night, but it also is a highly functional safety feature for your guests. Consider adding lights along the steps of your deck to safely guide your guests and pets down the stairs so that everyone can safely enjoy your deck in the evening.
