The first thing you need to consider when developing an outdoor lighting scheme is safety. The pathways and the doorways need to be properly illuminated in order to prevent any unexpected stumbles. Properly lit entrance ways including any back alleys that might border your property also increase your level of personal safety. A good rule of thumb is to have at least 60-80 watts of light at every outside door, set of outside steps, or any other place that you might want to go to at night ie alleys or garbage bin areas.
Yellow bug repelling (or non bug attracting) light bulbs are a safer and more environmentally friendly option than using pesticides to rid your yard of bugs. The yellow tinted bubs that are made dont really repel the bugs but do not attract insects like the clear or white light bulbs do. Landscape Lighting. There are a couple of main needs when it comes to landscape lighting. Many folks have post lights or light fixtures that are on the top of posts or attached to walls or fences.
Considerations. Getting motion sensor lights sound pretty much like a good deal. There are however, a couple of points you should consider when buying motion sensor lights.
During the earlier summer months my backyard was a functional and safe place to socialize and relax without resorting to outdoor lights. Where I live the sun can still be shining until 9.30pm. In fact, during the month of June the skies became dark and the backyard become too dark to be safe right around the time I wanted some BBQ guests to leave so it worked out perfectly.
