Types of Outdoor Lighting

The right outdoor lighting fixture can transform your home. Whether you want to illuminate walkways, landscape fixtures, gardens, or create a warm and welcoming oasis of light, consider hiring a professional. At Atlanta Irrigation Company, we provide top-notch irrigation system installation services and landscape lighting services. There are many landscape lighting options in the market, which can take time for inexperienced individuals to choose the right fixtures. Our experienced technicians work with you to ensure we address your lighting needs without breaking the bank. Here are several options if you want to enhance your outdoor spaces with the right lighting fixtures.


Spotlights point in one direction, but they serve different purposes based on the type of light and how it is used. If your spotlight points upwards at a wall, it creates a wall-gazing effect and functions as an uplight. However, spotlights vary in brightness and the area covered, so it’s advisable to consult a lighting technician for help. The last thing you want is to install landscape lights that don’t illuminate the target areas. We can help you install fixtures that focus on anything you point at, such as walls, plants, patios, and statues.

Flood Lights

Flood lights are the most helpful landscape fixtures. They are spotlights but brighter and have a wider coverage area. We recommend flood lights if you want to illuminate patios and driveways from an elevated point. You don’t have to worry about running over the lawn and irrigation systems, not to mention the high landscaping and sprinkler repair costs.


From a design perspective, up or downlights are some of the best outdoor fixtures. Uplights bring landscape fixtures like statues to life, creating wall patterns that enhance curb appeal. If you combine both up and down lighting fixtures, it not only improves the aesthetic appeal but also makes the premises safer and better.

Step Lights

The name says it all. Step lights go on the front of the vertical face or the walls beside the stairs. These lighting fixtures are crucial for preventing slips and falls down the stairs, especially when it is dark and slippery. You can mitigate such scenarios by consulting a technician to install step lights.

Garden Lights

Lighting fixtures can be placed in green spaces to enhance the appeal of your garden. These fixtures mimic a mushroom’s shape, making them perfectly complement natural areas. The light goes downwards and spreads out, ensuring everyone sees the plants below rather than the bulbs. It is advisable to consult a reputable sprinkler repair service before installation to mitigate pipe damage and inefficient irrigation.

These are some of the common landscape lighting fixtures homeowners should know of before scheduling an installation. It is advisable to steer clear of DIY lighting projects, especially if you need more expertise and tools. Contact us at Atlanta Irrigation Company to schedule a consultation with our experts. We offer various services at competitive rates, including landscape lighting and irrigation system installation.
