Landscape lighting in El Paso lawn.

What are the Different Types of Landscape Lighting?

When planning your landscape, it’s essential to think about the overall aesthetic of your space and what kind of mood you want to create. At TLC Outdoor Services, El Paso, we ensure that your landscape lighting sets the tone at night when you’re entertaining guests or relaxing in your yard with family and friends. 

You can also make your El Paso home more appealing during daylight hours by installing accent lights around windows and doors or stringing up spotlights on trees or posts to draw attention to specific focal points in your yard.

Accent Lights

Accent lighting highlights a focal point like a statue or fountain in your landscape. It can also be used to make a space more dramatic by adding light and shadow. Accent lighting is typically done with spotlights that shine on one thing at a time. 

Spotlights are best for making single items stand out, but if you want to illuminate an entire garden, you’ll need something bigger, like an uplight or floodlight. Uplights look best when placed about three feet off the ground and pointed down; they’re ideal for highlighting shrubs, trees, sculptures, and tall plants in your yard. 

Floodlights offer a broader spread of light than up lights; they’re perfect for areas with open spaces or ones that don’t have any high points. For instance, floods work well on large expanses of lawns because they reach all corners evenly while still providing some measure of intensity.

Path Lights

Path lighting is landscape lighting that shines along walkways, sidewalks, and other paths. Path lights are usually decorative and use LED bulbs to produce a more natural-looking glow.

These lights also often have motion sensors, so they only turn on when someone is in the area. In addition, some path lights will have solar panels on them so they can charge during daylight hours and automatically turn off at night.

Other path lights will use outlets, batteries, or other power sources to keep them on all night. This can be a great option if you want your garden path lights on at all times, even when it’s dark. 

However, these lights usually do not detect motion, so they may be wasting electricity and money if they stay on all night. Also, it’s unlikely that they come with solar panels.

Garden Deck and Gazebo Lights

Gazebo lights are the perfect landscape lighting for adding a subtle glow to your El Paso outdoor living space. These can be installed on one or two posts and provide ambient and accent lighting. 

Gazebo lights also come in multiple colors, so you can find one that matches your outdoor decor best. You can also add gazebo lights to your existing deck railing for a beautiful effect without spending much money. Plus, they’re easy to install!

Wall-Mounted Lights

A wall-mounted light is a type of landscape lighting that can be installed anywhere in the garden and doesn’t require an exterior electrical outlet. Wall-mounted lights can be installed on walls or fences, but make sure to check for waterproofing before installation. 

They’re not as powerful as outdoor floodlights, but they can still provide enough light to illuminate your garden at night. These lights are also easy to install and don’t require wiring experience.
