Your Guide to Landscaping Lighting Atlanta, GA

The landscape of a home is not just defined by its flora, terraces, or pathways, but also by the way it is illuminated. A beautifully landscaped yard can come to life in the evening hours with the right kind of lighting. At Woodburn Landscapes in Alpharetta, we believe that landscape lighting plays a crucial role in enhancing the beauty and functionality of any outdoor space. Let’s delve deeper into the world of landscaping lights and explore the various types available.

Why is Landscape Lighting Important?

There is true value in your landscape lighting investment. In fact, the proper lighting outside your home can provide the following:

  • Aesthetics: Lighting can accentuate the beauty of your outdoor spaces, highlighting specific features like statues, water features, or prized plants.
  • Safety: Proper lighting ensures that pathways, steps, and uneven terrain are visible during nighttime, preventing trips and falls.
  • Security: A well-lit yard can deter potential intruders.
  • Usability: With adequate lighting, patios, decks, and gardens can be enjoyed even after the sun sets.

Types of Landscape Lighting

At Woodburn Landscapes, we proudly provide a diverse menu of landscape lighting options, including the following types:


These are like the actors on a stage. Spotlights focus intense light on a particular feature, like a statue, tree, or fountain, making it the center of attention. They’re adjustable, so you can change the focus as you deem fit.


Positioned on the ground, uplights project illumination upwards, emphasizing the height and structure of trees or walls. They can give a dramatic effect, especially when showcasing architectural features.


With a broader beam than spotlights, floodlights are ideal for illuminating larger areas like driveways, big shrubs, or even the façade of your house. They are excellent for security purposes as well.

Bollard Lights

These are short, vertical posts that provide soft illumination to pathways, driveways, or garden boundaries. Not only do they ensure safety, but their designs can also complement the aesthetics of your landscape.

String Lights

Perfect for a festive ambiance, string lights can be draped over trees, along fences, or around patios. They add a whimsical touch and are great for gatherings or dinners in your outdoor space.

Patio Lights

These are designed specifically for patio areas. Whether embedded into the patio flooring or designed as wall-mounted fixtures, they create a cozy and inviting ambiance, perfect for late-night conversations or dinner parties.

Expert Advice for Landscape Lighting

Layering in landscape lighting involves the combination of various light types, which can craft a beautifully layered effect, enhancing the depth and overall character of your landscape. In the realm of choices, LED lighting stands out as a highly recommended option due to its durability, energy efficiency, and longevity compared to traditional lighting solutions. To optimize the outcome and ensure safety in setup, it’s advisable to seek professional installation for your landscape lighting.

Atlanta Landscaper - Top Client Rated 2023 badge
Max and his crew do great work, they’ve been servicing my property for awhile now. All of the guys on his crew are friendly and really pay close attention to the needs of my lawn. They take care of it like it is their own yard! Looking forward to many more years of quality service. I’d recommend Woodburn Landscaping to everyone!

We have been working with Woodburn for about a year. It began with leaf collection during the fall, and now we have them handle our lawn in its entirety - mowing, edging, trimming, and blowing. They also pruned some bushes for us. Each of these services they provided was of excellent quality. They are very responsive to any requests and are both kind and professional. I can not recommend them more highly and am very fortunate to have found them.
