Lighting Techniques


Up lighting is probably one of the most commonly used options, which provides a dramatic result. The light is placed in the ground and the light beam is directed upwards. Although up lighting can be used in a number of instances, you would see it most often for shrubs and trees. Because of the way this lighting works, it can take an ordinary tree and make it look spectacular.


With this technique, the light shines within shrubs and trees and are then angled so the light beam shines in a downward position. The result is a soft appearance that enhances both home and tree or shrub while also opening up the area with light, which is nice for security purposes. If you have a larger yard, moonlighting is an excellent solution.

Path Lighting

Using low-impact shielded lights facing down to the ground or paths to add safety, security and visibility for walking is often called path lighting. Path landscape lighting evenly and clearly lights pathways, walkways and water elements like ponds and waterfalls while avoiding glare.

Step & Deck Lighting
