12 Beautiful Landscape Lighting Ideas

If you’ve invested in landscaping your garden, you’ll want to complete it with the perfect finishing touch – outdoor lighting.

Not only will landscape lighting mean you can enjoy your garden well into the evening, but it can also highlight and show off certain areas of your newly designed outdoor space.

Whether you want to illuminate a striking feature or create a magical twinkling seating area, we have some of the best landscaping ideas:

1. Lighting to highlight shapes and angles

If you have a concrete patio (growing increasingly popular due to their low cost and maintenance) you can build in lighting to compliment the shapes you create. Because of it’s versitility, often people experiment with angles with concrete patios and seating such as this modern garden space, and utilising lighting when you have it installed (or afterwards) to highlight the beautiful angles and shapes of your garden features can really bring the design to life.

Rope lighting is perfect for laying along the edge of flower borders to gently illuminate edging and subtly lighting up shrubs, so you can appreciate your landscape design well into the evening.

 

3. Transform Tree Trunks

Lining your garden path with lights is not only an attractive and easy way to light up your garden, but makes it much safer at night time too – illuminating uneven areas along the walkway.

If you have hardscapes in your garden such as walls, these can easily disappear into the shadows when the sun goes down. With clever lighting, you can brighten otherwise unnoticeable features in your garden after dark.

6. Water Wonders

The great thing about fairy lights is that they are really versatile – so no matter what fanciful ideas you have for lighting up your landscape, you’ll nearly always find a use for fairy lights! Why not work them into an unusual design or light up an unused item?

 

12. Illuminate Trees

If you’re lucky enough to have trees in your garden – you’ll want to admire them day and night. Using an uplighter below a tree creates a dramatic yet beautiful focal point in your garden, highlighting colours and textures without being too bright.

 

We hope we’ve inspired you to use more lighting in your landscaped outdoor space. If you’ve done something special with lighting in your garden we’d love to hear about it!
