With the spring season just around the corner, you may be wondering how to liven up your home’s outdoor spaces. One of the best way this can be achieved is by accenting your very own yard, beginning with your trees.
After all, trees can provide an oasis of shade during the day, so why not try to highlight them at night to create an even more inviting focal point?
Why We Recommend Outdoor Tree Lighting When Creating a Design For a Client
Illuminated trees can do an incredible job when it comes to creating the “walls” of your outdoor space at night. In most landscapes, trees can be some of the most central and dramatic structures and features.
This is why focusing on your trees makes perfect sense if you want to truly liven up your backyard in terms of creating an evening scene.
How We Choose Which Trees to Highlight in a Yard Full of Trees
When choosing which trees, in particular, to highlight, our outdoor lighting professionals key in on ornamental trees, in order to create focal points throughout the landscape.
We also factor in the larger, more mature trees in a homeowner’s yard, as these can create a “ceiling-like” effect when they are illuminated.
Different Outdoor Lighting Techniques For Different Sizes And Types of Trees
Depending upon the size of the homeowner’s yard and the types of trees our outdoor lighting technicians are working with, we will use varying outdoor lighting techniques.
For instance, we will illuminate the interior of the tree which will create a dramatic structure at night. Additionally, we also work with utilizing cooler tones in the canopies on evergreens or deciduous trees in order to allow the colors of the foliage to pop at night.
How Accent Lighting Trees in a Yard Adds to The Overall Landscape Lighting Scene
Accenting trees adds so much visual appeal to the overall lighting scene. Whether we’re working with Crepe Myrtles, Holly varieties, Maples, or Evergreens, illuminating these trees can make a massive backyard feel more intimate, or a smaller yard feel like a fuller, more expansive outdoor room.
