Landscape Lighting Installation

Many of us spend lots of time perfecting the appearance of our backyards and patios. After all, our backyards and patios are great locations for social functions. However, to use for nighttime entertaining you need these areas to be illuminated. Outdoor lighting is a way to light up your outdoor space to make it available for nighttime social events. There are numerous creative and easy ways to light up your outdoor space. Here are our five favorite ways.

String Lighting

String lighting is a popular way to illuminate outdoor areas. There are many ways to use string lighting in an outdoor space. When installed overhead and across a space it can resemble a roof.  String lighting can also be wrapped around a tree, branches or umbrellas. String lighting comes in a variety of sizes and lengths making it a fun and simple solution to brighten outdoor areas.


This is another great outdoor lighting solution. Lanterns can be placed on the ground, on a patio table or hung from trees. They come in a variety of shapes, materials, and sizes. The best part is that outdoor lanterns are waterproof, which prevents rust from taking away from the magic.


Uplighting is when you position a light on the ground and the direction of the light is upward. This is seen in outdoor areas when lights are positioned under trees or at the bottom of a wall. This is a fantastic lighting solution that can highlight garden features, add depth to flat surfaces and create shadows to boost your outdoor aesthetic.

Illuminated Planters

If you are looking for a creative way to brighten your outdoor area, pot lighting is the solution for you. Illuminated planters are a unique way to make your outdoor area stand out. Light up planters come in different colors and are controlled by remote control. Many have different settings where they can be in a color-changing mode or you can pick one steady color. These planters are also waterproof, making it perfect for outdoor lighting. They also sell solar illuminated planters that are powered by sunlight.

Outdoor Chandeliers

Outdoor chandeliers add elegance to your outdoor patio. They come in different styles, sizes, and materials. To find the ideal width of your chandelier, in feet, round the width and length of the area you are wanting to brighten. Then sum those two measurements and change the unit for inches. For example, if your patio is 10 feet 2 inches by 20 feet 9 inches. The ideal width of the chandelier would be 31 inches.
