Where to Place Your Landscape Lighting?

Landscape lighting is an excellent option if you're looking for a way to brighten your home. You can choose from many different styles and types of lighting, including solar-powered lights that are easy to install and maintain.

Solar Lighting Makes It Easy to Illuminate Your Home's Exterior

As you go about your day, do you ever stop to think about how much energy your house uses? If so, it might be time for a change. Solar lighting makes it easy and inexpensive to illuminate the exterior of your home with a beautiful glow that attracts attention from passersby.

Solar stake lights are easy to install: string them along an existing power source or run an extension cord into the yard, where they'll shine brightly through the night. They're also maintenance-free—no wiring required! And since they don't require batteries or wires, there's no danger of accidentally breaking them in case of windy conditions or other weather events (like rain).

Solar lights are eco-friendly. They're made from natural materials like glass or plastic (and even metal!) without any harmful chemicals added into their construction process; this means less pollution is released into our atmosphere than traditional light bulbs would produce during production processes."

Let Your House be the Light

Like most people, you want to make your house look as good as possible. You want people to notice when they see it and think, "I want to live there." 

Outdoor lighting can help with this by highlighting the architecture of your home and making its features stand out, like a window or door frame (or even just a particular flowerpot). If you can't afford an entire yard full of lights, consider using only one or two bulbs in strategic places around the perimeter of your property—such as near windows or doors—and leave other rooms dark so that they don't compete with each other for attention.

Lights at the Front Gate

Now that you've got the basics, it's time to learn how to place your landscape lighting at the front gate.

Light up the roof if you want people to see your house from above! For this reason, our lights should be placed at eye level or lower and on the side of your home that faces away from them (the side where most visitors would walk). You can also use these same principles when placing outdoor light fixtures around other parts of your property—they should always face outward toward what's happening outside their radius.

Lights Along the Side of the Pathway


Lights along the side of the pathway can be used to guide guests and visitors to your front door. They also can help with security, safety, and ambiance.

For example, suppose you have a large house with several entrances and exits. In that case, lights along the side of your driveway or walkway will provide added visibility for drivers unfamiliar with where they're going! This is especially helpful if one of those exits leads directly into traffic. Once again: bright lights mean good things!

Light Up the Entrance

Regarding landscaping, lighting is one of the essential elements. Your entrance can be your first impression on visitors, and if you want them to feel welcome and comfortable, you must give them a good one. Here are some tips for lighting up your entrance:

  • Use light bulbs that are bright enough but not too bright (you don't want to blind anyone).
  • Consider using different colors or shapes of light bulbs and multiple points of illumination within the space—this will create texture and depth and create drama through shadows cast by surrounding objects like trees or bushes.
  • Try using candles at night when guests arrive; they'll give off more ambient light than just opening up an overhead lamp fixture would allow without being too harsh on anyone's eyesight!

Light Up the Corners


There are two main reasons to light up the corners of your house. 

First, it's a great way to create a sense of safety at night. You likely want to feel comfortable in your home and not worry about wandering eyes peering from dark corners or lurking around the doorways. 

Second, light can also be used as an accent—but not just any old accent; what we're talking about here is something that will make you stand out from the crowd: neon!

Neon Lights

Neon lights are popular among architects because they add some much-needed color and pizzazz when used on palatial estates (like ours). They're also versatile enough that they'll work well in small spaces like bathrooms where bright colors aren't strictly necessary but still look great when combined with white trimming around windows/doors/etc., which makes them perfect for smaller projects such as this one!

Light Up Your Steps

If you want to make your steps stand out, try lighting them up with solar lights. For example, you can use the same lights illuminating the driveway and walkway, but instead of being attached directly to the house or garage door, they're mounted on poles above each step.

The beauty of these types of solar-powered light sets is that they are visible from far away. So if you don't want passersby to trip over them when they're walking by at night (which would be awkward), then consider placing them higher up on your porch roof or around an existing tree in the front yard (if there's one). This will ensure maximum visibility for those who first see this feature when entering their homes after dark.

If you'd rather not have so many eyesores rotating outside during the day too, or because there aren't any trees nearby, consider adding motion-activated LED bulbs instead!

Light Up Your Tree

The first step to lighting your tree is to make it as colorful and beautiful as possible. With that in mind, you should place lights on the trunk of your tree, branches, and twigs. You'll also want to light up the ground around your tree with candles or floodlights so that nothing looks dull when viewed from afar—and if you have an outdoor pool (which we're guessing many people do), then consider putting lights in there too!
