We started to create our outdoor lighting scheme about 5 years ago. My spouse and I were charmed by the simplicity and beautiful effect or the outdoor lights of a French restaurant in our town. Since that time we have experimented with many different variations of outdoor lighting designs. Our scheme is a work in progress and it gets tweaked each year. Some years we use a lot of string lights while in other years we use spot lights and twinkly lights. We generally tend to stick to white lights although we sometimes use the odd colored spotlight to great success.
Finding the right outdoor fixture requires a lot of planning. While less than an entire home renovation, the process nonetheless requires precise calculations of the future savings that certain light fixtures might offer compared to their initial investment costs, as well as verification that the possible outdoor lighting fixtures are in compliance with the Dark Sky Movement, and that the possible outdoor lighting fixtures which you are considering are able to light the right areas of your home.
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.
