What Houzz contributors are saying:

Bud Dietrich, AIA added this to Curb Appeal Begs Your Attention
LightingIn addition to being inviting and beautiful by day, the exterior of a home should be welcoming and attractive at night. And make sure that there's lighting in the needed places, as guests shouldn't have to strain to locate the house numbers at night or stumble around looking for the path to the front door.And extend the lighting to the edges of your property to create a place that could be a setting for A Midsummer Night's Dream.
It takes a lot of of light to highlight plants or a tree — plants seem to just soak up light. Uplights showcase plants beautifully at night. These are lights on the ground, either set on a spike or recessed into the ground.The lighting in this courtyard garden beautifully illuminates the main specimen trees and plants, casting interesting shadows on the pathway. The use of mainly clipped evergreens in the planting means that there are no white or light-colored flowers to reflect any light, natural or artificial. But the benefit of this is the wonderful play of light and dark on the trimmed shapes created by the clever lighting.
Steven Corley Randel, Architect added this to Light Your Landscape for Drama and Function
Accentuate color. Several spotlights illuminate this courtyard and emphasize the rich red color of the Japanese maple. Consider that you might want brighter wattage on certain plants to take advantage of their seasonal interest. Always keep in mind the level of brightness a fixture will emit. Too low will not provide enough effect, but too high may burn or wash out the plants’ features.
