Whether you are going for a dramatic look, or simply looking to highlight the most important features of your yard, the right outdoor lighting can make all of the difference. Here are four simple ways to utilize landscape lighting in Overland Park:

Path Lights – Path lighting is incredibly versatile in that it can be both a gorgeous design element and a safety feature. It’s a great way to highlight the beautiful foliage to either side of the walk and helps you and your guest find their way to your door in the dark.

Floodlights – Floodlighting is a great way to highlight the landscape, from trees to sculptural elements. Use them for uplighting to create a focal point, or place in front of plants to produce dramatic shadows along a wall.

Wall Lights – Wall lights add an ambient glow to the exterior of your home and add depth to the overall lighting design.  It can also be used to highlight the texture of the wall. This can be accomplished with either floodlights placed at the base of the wall or with sconces.

Bollard Lights – Bollard lights are a great way to add both illumination and a sculptural element to your home. They’re a step up from typical path lighting and can add just the right touch to more minimal landscaping designs.
