What Houzz contributors are saying:

J. Peterson Garden Design added this to 8 Effective, Beautiful Lighting Types for Front Yards
2. Step lights. How many times have you tried to access someone's front yard steps at night and almost taken your life in your own hands? Don't do that to your family and friends, especially if you have a number of terraces or landing areas with many steps. Illuminate every other step (as shown) and have some garden lights on the sides so everyone knows where their next step will be. You'll minimize falls and spills as well as your own liability from someone's getting injured on your property.More ideas for lighting your outdoor steps
