Unique Landscape Lighting Ideas

No matter how big your backyard is, everyone can fit some landscape lighting on their property. If you want the landscape of your dreams, you’ve come to the right place. You might not know where to start, but reading this guide is a good first step.

In our guide, we’ve detailed the best landscape lighting ideas.

Play with Levels and Shadows

You don’t want your backyard to look one-dimensional. That’s why you shouldn’t just use one kind of lighting for your landscape. If, for example, you have your entire backyard lit by bright LED lights, you and your guests will be overwhelmed very quickly.

If you only used dimmed lighting, you won’t have anything that accentuates some of the best areas of your property. If you have a statue, tree, or other part of your property that you enjoy looking at, you should use bright lighting to do so. If you use dim lights for the rest of your backyard, this will make the accentuated parts of your backyard more profound and those areas will be focused on more.

Using More Fixtures

In the past, people have used less fixtures and increased the strength of their lighting. Now, people are using more lights and less intensity to create unique designs. That’s because you can use these lights for greater variety when you have more of them.

You can play with levels through the use of lighting. Using more fixtures allows you to do so with more ease. You can have remote controls placed in your home so that you can control which lights are turned on and which are turned off.

Using Multi-Coloured Lights

Multi-coloured lights are also beneficial for anyone who likes to change things up. You can use multi-coloured lights so that they either change one time and stay that way until you switch colours or you can choose to have lights that switch colours on their own.

Tree Lights

You should consider using lights to put focus on the trees on your property. That’s because wildlife is one of the most important parts of every backyard. If you have a tree that’s especially rare or beautiful, you can showcase it for everyone to see.

Smart Lights

Lights that can be controlled from your phone are becoming more and more popular. That’s because it helps homeowners save energy and because they can control the intensity of the lights right from their phones.

In doing so, you don’t have to worry about the lights in your home being turned on overnight. These lights are increasingly important as we become more aware of the effects of our actions on the environment.

You can use these lights outside as well if you want to control the intensity of the lights in your backyard. You can also turn everything off without having to step outside, which is a major bonus.


If you want to include lights in your backyard, you might be wondering how you can make these lights unique. That’s because, at the surface, there doesn’t seem to be all that much you can do with lighting.

While it’s true that might not have as many options in your home, you do have many options regarding your landscape lighting. For more ways to improve your lighting, contact the team at Stone Edge Landscapes today.
