Create a stunning backyard that can be enjoyed during the day and night with these outdoor lighting solutions. Before you invest in any landscape lighting, consider what your own purpose is. Perhaps you want to set a soft, romantic mood or have a bench or a shadowy garden corner you need to illuminate for security reasons. Sketch your yard to add backyard lighting; include the sketch existing lights, buildings, trees and shrubs, benches and decoration.
Determine how much effort you want to expend and set a budget and buy the lights. If you are lighting a darkened portion of your garden and the solar landscape light will not receive enough sunlight during the day, you need to have a solar panel installed in a high-sunlight location and run wiring to your solar lights. To highlight a single item in your space, consider using a few landscaping lighting fixtures with lower intensity bulbs. Have a look at these 41 beautiful lighting ideas for your backyard below.
