Exterior sconce lights can provide a secure environment in the home and an attractive addition to landscaping. Place the lights so they will shine heavy traffic roads and around the driveway for maximum visibility. You can also place the lights next to ornamental plants such as trees, shrubs or container grown flowers to cast interesting shadows across your yard at night.
Draw a diagram of your landscape and include all fixed objects, road, driveway, trees and garden beds. Enter the chart measurements of each object or area. Use the chart to get an overview of the landscape and give your ideas on where to place the exterior sconce lights. Use lights to highlight attractive architectural elements of your home. You can place the lights to accentuate your home facade, patio or deck. Consider using lighting that complements the home’s historic background, such as lanterns. Gas lamps are available in a variety of styles ranging from a modern.
Select trees and ornamental plants with lighting. You can place a light that will wither or install high-beam lights of the plant. Place candles in the outdoor entertainment areas. For those who enjoy cooking in the outdoor kitchen, place bright enough to light up the grill, prep area and dining table. Install exterior sconce lights for safety by placing them along roads, driveways, front and back doors, patio areas and along the perimeter of the lawn. Have an electrician to set a timer on your lights so that they leave the impression that someone is home even when you are away.
