My house has been dark for 20 yrs and finally I will light up my walkways! It's always been an issue during Halloween or guests coming and going. Sticking flashlights in bushes, pathetic. Because of the above comments I will not light up any trees I thought would be a cool effect. Thank you for letting us know of the up lighting no no.

I want to light up the roof. I put up a new metal cooper shingle roof and want to illuminate it at night during events. Any ideas?

light pollution is not such a good idea as it is harmful to migrating birds and has a negative effect on human health., so suggest downward pointing light fixtures
