Make your large backyard feel like an intimate and colorful oasis. When lighting a large outdoor space, focus on lighting elements that are closer to your living area, and add visual appeal by using strategically placed spotlights throughout.
•Use Outdoor Lighstrips or Calla bollards on the pathways that closely interact with your main living space. For trees and shrubs in the far distance, add more lights between those elements and your living area – and space them out.
•Pick a few trees or plants you want to highlight, then decide how to light them: Lighting from the front will enhance their natural texture and cast a silhouette behind. To create a dramatic look, install the Lily spotlight at the rear of a tree.
