How to landscape with light

Pool landscape lighting ideas for your outdoor area

If you’re looking for ideas about what to light around your swimming pool, here are a few suggestions:

1. Light your water features with spotlights

2. Uplight or downlight trees and plants with spotlights

3. Light your paths with path lights and hardscape lights

4. Use floodlights to illuminate your patio and other high-traffic areas

5. Uplight a wall with one or more spotlights

6. Arrange tiki torches around the perimeter of your pool area

7. Add hardscape lights to steps and seating areas

8. Spotlight pottery, statues, and other unique features

9. Hang string lights over your patio

Who should install your lights?

We highly recommend getting a licensed electrician to install your outdoor landscaping lights, especially when electrical outlets and wiring work are involved.

LED low-voltage lights are the best choice because they look better, save energy, and are safer to install if you know how to do it.

Solar-powered lights and torches may be safely placed and arranged on your own, even if you have little to no experience with landscaping hardware.

We are sure you are inspired now that you know the basics of lighting your outdoor pool area. Suppose you are currently shopping around for a turnkey company to do your outside patio and build a spectacular swimming pool, leave a comment below or give us a shout here. We are always happy to talk.
