Outdoor Lighting
Outdoor lighting allows you to enjoy your yard after dark, increases the security and safety of your home. Well-designed outdoor lighting can also give your landscape a dramatic new personality in the evening hours.
Like other aspects of landscape design, the most effective outdoor lighting designs are simple. To avoid over lighting your yard, position lights in unobtrusive places and any areas that need to be illuminated for safety or security reasons. Then decide which outdoor areas you'd like to use at night, and what you'll be using them for. For example, if you want to barbecue at night, you'll need adequate lighting in the grill area. Choose outdoor lamps that are durable and weather resistant. Another great idea for your outdoor space is portable patio lamps. These allow you to take the light wherever you need it. Portable lamps can be plugged in to an outdoor outlet. Citronella torches and oil lamps will make a great impact on the overall feel of your patio.

Outdoor Lighting:

When designing outdoor lighting, you need to consider the purpose of the lighting along with the basic methods for achieving energy efficiency. Outdoor lighting for homes generally serves one or a combination of three main purposes:

*Aesthetics
Illuminate the exterior of the house and landscape.
*Security
Illuminate the grounds near the house or driveway.
*Utility
Illuminate the porch and driveway to help people navigate safely to and from the house.

Light a pathway with a series of electric lamps or lanterns. Patio lanterns can be used to create a wonderful atmosphere for evening dinner parties. Weatherproof floor and table lamps may also be used to link an outdoor rooms to the house, allowing safe movements from one area to the other.

Outdoor lighting can be used to stunning effect in association with water. There is obvious need to highlight pools and patio areas for safety, but it also can be breathtaking to see illuminated reflections.

When setting up lighting for an evening party, it is often a good idea to add a few citronella lanterns as these will help keep mosquitoes away. Ultimately it is the effect of light that is important. There are many beautiful lamps and lanterns available, which are manufactured in weatherproof stainless steel, brass and cast aluminum.

Here are some basic methods for achieving energy-efficient outdoor lighting:

  • Security and utility lighting does not need to be bright to be effective.
  • Use fluorescent, high-intensity discharge, or low-pressure sodium lights unless incandescent lights are automatically controlled to be on for just a few minutes each day.
  • Consider incandescent flood lights with combined photosensors and motion sensors in the place of other security lighting options.
  • Use photosensors with fluorescent, high-intensity discharge, or low-pressure sodium lights.
  • Make sure outdoor light fixtures have reflectors, deflectors, or covers to make more efficient use of the light source and help reduce light pollution.
  • Use timers and other controls to turn decorative lighting on and off.*Use outdoor solar lighting where and if applicable.
  • Outdoor lighting is one of the most effective ways that you can improve the look and functionality of your outdoor living space.
  • Put security lighting in highly vulnerable areas of your property.
  • Illuminate your house number to ensure that police, fire or medical team are able to locate your home at night.
  • Outdoor lighting helps friends and visitors find your home quickly and easily.
  • Illuminate steps, paths and driveways to prevent accidents after dark.
  • General outdoor lighting provides overall illumination so that people look good and feel comfortable.
  • Properly placed lighting can create the most wonderful ambience.
  • Accent lighting adds drama or can highlight an unusual feature.
  • Citronella oil-burning lamps a particularly effective way to create atmospheric lighting and to keep the biting bugs away.
  • Weatherproof patio lamps may be plugged directly into an outdoor socket.
  • Investing in long-life outdoor bulbs will make the maintenance of outdoor lighting devices easier.
  • Don't keep lighted tabletop tiki torches unattended indoors, especially if there are children or pets, or any other elements that can cause the torch to fall.
