Have you thought about the lighting you’re going to use in your backyard this summer? Having a conversation with friends in complete darkness probably isn’t the ideal night — unless you’re telling spooky stories! If that’s not your style, here are a few accent lighting ideas for your landscape this year!

  • Colored lighting can be great for path lights. And we don’t mean colored lightbulbs — placing lights near plants with color can create a custom hue for you and your guests as they stroll down your walkway!
  • Fireplace light. What’s cozier than an outdoor fireplace?  Add a fireplace or firepit at the end of your patio or in the middle of a group of chairs to inspire conversation and provide a great space for congregating. Plus, it’ll keep the bugs away!
  • Overhead lighting is a modern, tasteful, and inexpensive way to illuminate an area. It can be strung out for low subtle lighting, or bunched together for a much brighter appearance. The best part is, there are endless options as to what kind of bulbs you can choose based on your taste.
  • Subtle accent lighting is important if you’re trying to highlight some of the key features within your landscape. By adding some dimension to your landscape, you’re creating an inviting setting for your guests — walking in, they’ll feel right at home!
