Types of Lights

Path lights like the one at left, usually have shades that produce a wide, downward spread of light.

Lantern-type lights both illuminate paths and provide general lighting.

Spotlights or floodlights can be swiveled to point at a feature or an area of the yard.

"Brick lights" are shaped to resemble a patio paver and are actually installed in the soil, where they point diffused light upward.

Rope lights are strings of tiny, evenly spaced bulbs that can be hung from a tree like Christmas lights.

Deck lights can be fastened to a vertical structure such as an overhead or a trellis.
