When winter is dark, damp and dreary, it may be unappealing to spend time outside. Adding landscape lighting can greatly enhance your yard and garden—even if you just observe it from a window.
Landscape lighting can bring out the shape and texture of stone walls. Placing lights underwater in a pond or waterfall will highlight the shimmering water.
The bare branches of trees lend a beautiful structure to the winter landscape. Lighting your trees from below allows you to see their structure when you arrive home in the dark. They will also be visible from the windows in your house.
Lights along pathways and stairs improve safety at night. If the lights are placed among shrubs and other plantings rather than simply lining the path, they will show off the colors and textures of your plants.
Landscape ighting will increase your hours of enjoyment in the summer as well. Lights around the perimeter of a patio make it a relaxing space for eating dinner and entertaining friends. Lighting in garden beds will lend depth to the landscape.
