Lighting Ideas

To create outdoor lighting that is both stylish and functional, install lights on the house and in the yard to provide ample light for you to see at night, and then pick a few decorative light fixtures to hang under a pergola as feature pieces. Sconces installed on the house walls could provide functional light, while stringing mason jars with lights inside give a whimsical feel to the patio.

Place path lights along your walkways so you and your guests can safely and easily navigate the backyard. You can also add these path lights to your driveway so people can drive up easily as well. Entrance lights at the front door provide safety and security as they let the neighborhood know someone is home.
