Four Landscape Lighting Ideas for Spring
Extended daylight hours and moderate evening temperatures make the outdoors more appealing in the Spring. But having a well-lit landscape during this season can take your enjoyment to the next level. Landscape lighting comes in many forms and has many functions, from providing nighttime safety to enhancing the beauty of your home. Previously on the blog, we discussed five different kinds of landscape lighting. Today, Nixa Lawn Service shares four landscape lighting ideas that will brighten your Spring nights.
This spring, add some light to your backyard or garden with string lights. They are small and easy to hang wherever you want — just string them up and plug them in. You can choose between different types and designs, such as pepper lights, Edison bulb lights, or solar string lights to save on energy costs. Regardless of your choice, you’ll be ready to enjoy a relaxing, cozy night outside.
Like string lights, outdoor lamps come in a variety of designs, including post, wall, hanging, and portable lanterns. Whether you prefer contemporary or traditional, lanterns add a decorative and stylish appeal to your landscape. You can place them at the front door, or hang them on the porch, patio, or deck. Also, you can put different lights inside the lanterns, such as LED lights for security or candles to set the mood.
Spring is a perfect time to plant colorful flowers and plants, and you can use pots as a source of outdoor lighting. Some containers are illuminated entirely, while others come with small strip lights. Either way, illuminated planters will be the centerpiece of your landscape during the day and night.
Use the Furniture
Last but not least, integrate lighting into your patio furniture. Your sitting area is often the focal point of the landscape, and you can create a modern, safe space with lights under your tables and couches. If you have outdoor stairs, you can also place LED strip lights along the base to radiate throughout your patio or backyard.
