A well-lit front yard not only welcomes guests and leads them safely to the front door but also accentuates features that would otherwise be lost in the dark. Examples include:
Path lights (left): Evenly spaced fixtures with conical tops throw circular pools of light.
Uplights (center): Stake-mounted fixtures cast shadows on walls and define the tree’s trunk and leaves.
Downlight (right): The small cylindrical fixtures hang from branches to “moonlight” flowers.
Hedge-washing lights: Like broad uplights, they showcase large areas.
