The first thing you need to consider when developing an outdoor lighting scheme is safety. The pathways and the doorways need to be properly illuminated in order to prevent any unexpected stumbles. Properly lit entrance ways including any back alleys that might border your property also increase your level of personal safety. A good rule of thumb is to have at least 60-80 watts of light at every outside door, set of outside steps, or any other place that you might want to go to at night ie alleys or garbage bin areas.
Floodlights and spotlights are also quite popular and give off a strong beam of light. Because they are so low to the ground, they work great to accentuate the natural features of trees and shrubs. The only difference between the two is that floodlights have a wide beam, while spotlights have a narrow beam.
You can use these fixtures to completely change the look of your exterior living space by using them for the pathways in your garden or by installing them along your driveway. Similar types of fixtures would be accent lighting and directional landscape lights. All of these usually come in a variety of shapes and sizes, so you should take stock of measurement and size before you select anything.
