Do It Yourself – Outdoor Lighting – Or Not

When friends added some basic landscape lighting they said they never thought of their trees as being such a beautiful part of the landscape. The addition of a few low voltage lights beaming up into the foliage created a lovely view of the leafy cover of the trees that became the focal point of their garden.

When we added path lighting to a garden walkway from the rear of the property to the back door it made for safe-footing and a sense of security when we returned late at night.

In years path homeowners had a few basic black fixtures to choose from but today there’s a nice selection of outdoor lighting fixtures that complement a landscape.

If you’re considering adding outdoor lighting to your yard wait until it’s dark, give the kids a flashlight and use them as spotters to determine the best location for lighting. A lighting center or home center will give you product information. For inspiration and ideas go to the American Lighting Association at www.americanlightingassoc.com.
Click on “Outdoor Lighting” in the Lighting Your Home section.

If you add outdoor lighting I bet you’ll spend a lot more time enjoying the evening in your own backyard.
