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.
One of the most practical, easiest outdoor lights to use are solar powered lights. These lights use the sun's rays as their power source instead of electricity. Because of this, solar powered lights can be placed just about anywhere in your yard, making them the most practical of the bunch. Just remember to put them in an area where they will have regular exposure to the sun.
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.
