The Differences Between Down Lighting & Up Lighting
With all the multiple kinds of lighting terms, it can sometimes become a bit difficult to know the distinctions, and when is the best option to select one. Up lights and down lights are fortunately self-explanatory – up lights shine upward, while down lights are directed downward. However, determining where and when to mount these lights can be more challenging to determine.
Up lights tend to be helpful whenever more depth is desirable. For example, flat lawns or patios, as well as fences and walls, all do well with having more shadowed texture. Up lights are also important not only for creating boundaries and layers but for adding security and safety features.
Down lights also add depth, but they tend to accentuate special places with a warm ambiance. For example, ponds, flower beds, fountains, and landscape sculptures often look more appealing with down lights. They are great to use for pathways and exterior furniture as well. Usually, a mix of both up lights and down lights is best for residences.

Types of Path Lights
It is important to protect family members, friends, neighbors, and other guests who are walking around the house’s exterior after dark. Path lights are great choices because they brighten up the walkway, as well as other landscaping features, such as flower beds.
Examples of path lights include:
- Garden lights
- Down lights
- Bollard lights
- Flush lights
- Inground light or well lights
Let our technicians at VanDorne Landscape and Design advise the optimal locations and positions for each kind of landscape lighting.
The Benefits of Photocells
A photocell is a special device that helps control the amount of lighting used. This is especially important because no one wants to waste energy unnecessarily. A photocell has a sensor that works by turning on the lights automatically as soon as it begins to get darker outside. They can be programmed with timers and low-voltage transformers, helping residents save even more money. They do not require any type of cables or fuel, and best of all, they are extremely durable. Even with all kinds of weather, they have a long lifespan, which means they do not require continual replacements.
