Landscape Lighting Techniques

We can use many different methods of lighting to achieve the perfect ambiance for your home and space.


Delivers a subtle, low amount of light to a wide area, up close to a structure, with minimal hot spots


Adds depth and dimension to stucco, brick, stonework or architectural features of a home

Silhouette Lighting

Draw attention to an interesting shape by lighting a vertical surface behind the object to accent the unique shape

Cross Lighting

Using two or three beams of light, it creates 360- degree visual interest on large trees, statues or other tall fixtures

Accent Lighting

Shines light upward to illuminate an object or surface for dramatic, attention-getting visuals


A technique that projects the look of a tree or yard art onto a surface behind the object

Mirror Lighting

Create dream-like water scenes by strategically lighting background areas around bodies of water that reflect the landscape off the water

Moon Lighting

Placing a lower lumen fixture high in a tree catches all the details of the branches and leaves, emulating the look of moonlight

Underwater and Water Accent

Enhance and highlight flowing water in waterfalls, streams and fountains. Create a magical mirroring effect on still waters

Path and Spread Lighting

Illuminate sidewalks, stone pathways and lawn walkways while adding a hint of intrigue to boulders and plant beds

Deck and Patio Lighting

Accentuate all of the beauty and detail of decks, patios, and outdoor kitchens, steps and handrails

In-Ground Lighting

Deliver light to permanent and semi-permanent installations such as sidewalks, large trees, walls and flag poles

Xeriscape Lighting

Cacti, grasses and the stone used in xeriscape designs can benefit from a lower lumen illumination than traditional landscaping

Hardscape Lighting

Highlight stone features, retaining walls, outdoor kitchens, steps, handrails, benches and more
