Lighting the front yard greenery gives your home curb appeal, even at night.BaoHa

Suddenly, they’re dramatic and elegant. They even look more expensive. The neighbors might start whispering. landscape lighting at front of home and on trees

Tall trees like palms, magnolia, and oaks all get the same type of uplighting, with MR-16 bulbs that shine light from the ground up. But these lights come in various widths and wattages to allow for flexibility so each tree can get just the right effect.

Give your short trees some love, too.

Shorter palms and shrubs look great with “wall washer” fixtures that have a large mirror to help scatter the light all over to highlight the tree’s features.

Here, the bulbs are lower wattages, so the up-close plants don’t get washed out with too much light.

Speaking of Too Much Light…

Don’t go crazy out there. You’re going for curb appeal here, not a hospital operating room look. Don’t light everything.

If you spotlight every tree, shrub, and plant, you’re not enhancing your curb appeal with landscape lighting. You’re just washing out your yard and making it look garish. landscape lighting in grasses in landscape bedSpend a few minutes really looking at your landscaping features. What are your favorites?
