Moonlighting

Moonlighting
The effect of moonlight filtering through the trees is another pleasing outdoor lighting technique. Up and down lighting is used in creating this look. With fixtures carefully placed in trees, both the trees and ground surfaces are beautifully illuminated. Ground lighting is accented by shadows from leaves and branches.

Trees and shrubs with interesting branch structure are dramatic when silhouetted against a wall or building facade. This combination of landscape and facade lighting provides additional security near the building.

Up-Lighting for All-Around Viewing

Up-lighting for All-Around Viewing
If the lighted object may be seen from any direction, well-lights are the logical choice. These  below-grade fixtures are louvered to further reduce the potential for glare.

Spread Lighting

Spread Lighting
The natural form and color of flower-shaped lights enhance their usefulness in lighting stairs or items of special interest.

Specifically designed to blend with the background, these spread lights are a decorative, functional addition.

Path Lighting

Path Lighting

Path lights are basically spread lights at a lower height. In areas where other landscape lighting is used, a high degree of light shielding is necessary for path lights. This prevents the glare which inhibits full view of the surrounding landscape.

If no other landscape lighting is used in the immediate area, unshielded path lights are acceptable. These fixtures illuminate the path and some of the surrounding landscape as well.
