Lighting is one of the easiest and least-expensive ways to cast an enchanting spell on any outdoor space. Today we gathered for you 20 lightening ideas which will illuminate your outdoor area and create a distinctive mood. When thinking about how to design exterior landscape lighting the first thing to know is that less can be more. Because the eye is drawn to areas with the greatest amount of visual contrast, it doesn’t necessarily take many lighting fixtures to create a really beautiful effect. If you don’t want to make your outdoor area look like a Las Vegas casino then avoid lightening your whole yard. If everything is highlighted, then nothing stands out and nothing is special. Instead, consider what features you want to show off, and determine how you plan to use specific outdoor areas.
