A Guide to Outdoor Lighting for Your Home

  • Pathway Lighting: Often using low-to-the-ground fixtures, this lighting option helps guide you along pathways through your yard. This is a great way to increase the safety of your pathways, while also highlighting your landscape. This is also a great option for those who don’t necessarily want to flood the night sky with an overpowering light.
  • Accent Lighting: If your home or yard has features that you want to highlight, accent outdoor lighting is a great way to show off your investment. Examples include a beautiful tree, a sculpture, a fountain, etc.
  • Deck/Patio Lighting: If you have a deck or patio in your yard, that is likely where you are spending much of your time outdoors. Deck and patio outdoor lighting is a great way to be able to utilize these spaces not only in the daytime, but also well into the night. Examples of this type of outdoor lighting include recessed lights, string lights, or even LED strips that can create a warm and inviting atmosphere for nighttime outdoor living.
  • Security Lighting: It is never a bad idea to enhance the security of your home at night with well-placed security outdoor lighting. If security is your priority, motion-activated and other smart lighting systems could be great options.
