Pool landscape lighting pictures and ideas. Unique swimming pool landscaping lights. How to use low voltage and solar landscaping lights in your backyard pool landscape design.
The right kind of lighting can not only make your pool and patio safe and useable in the evenings, it can compliment its design. By placing lights just beneath or angling them toward important design elements, attention can be drawn to those features.
In the photo above, lights have been placed between the low hedge and the neatly trimmed tall hedge to accent a part of the landscape that the homeowner is understandably proud of.
More lights beside the steps provide safety.
The number of lights you will need for a pool landscape design depends on the size of the area to be lit and whether or not children will be using the pool.
The inground pool landscape above has been subtly lit. This type of gentle lighting provides a more relaxing and romantic atmosphere. As appealing as this may be to adults, it is not the best way to light a pool if there are little ones around.
In a house where children live, pool landscape lighting needs to be bright enough to allow mom and dad a clear view of the entire pool area at a glance.
Brighter lighting will also allow any elderly family members to use the pool comfortably at night.
In this small side yard, there are lights both inside the pool and in the surrounding planting beds.
If you are planning to have a swimming pool installed, plan the pool landscape lighting at the same time so that the lighting will be integrated into the pool landscape design.
If you already have a pool that is not lit or you want to add more lighting to the area, consider using solar landscaping lights. They are cheaper to install and run and are also a "greener" option than electric lights.
I can't think of a better light for pools with tropical landscape designs than this LED palm tree. The lighted coconut tree is available in 7 colors and 5 sizes.
The energy-saving LED lights on the palm fronds do not flash. If a bulb burns out, the remainder will continue to glow.
The tree is built on a steel base with UV protected plastic fronds. It will withstand some winter weather, but if you live where winters are frigid and snow falls by the foot, store the light indoors for the winter.
Replacement fronds are available if you leave it out and a frond gets damaged.
The feathery fronds of this lighted palm are so lifelike that they even blow in the breeze! The steel composite trunk of this all-weather light is available in a range of sizes up to 20 feet tall making it suitable for use outside multi-story homes or businesses.
An integrated pump draws water into this floating fountain causing it to spin slowly while spraying red, green, blue and yellow plumes into the air.
The base station (included) connects to your iPod and speakers (not included) to make the light and water "dance" to the music you choose. As the lights dance, a fascinating kaleidoscope of colored images form on the pool floor.
This super bright white LED light can be installed in concrete or other hard materials. If you want pool landscape lighting that will not get in the way or draw attention to itself, this may be just what you need.
This is a set of 4 solar insect lights which will blend harmoniously into your pool landscape lighting design. The UV bulb attracts and eliminates annoying mosquitoes and flies. A grate surrounds the bulbs to prevent curious children and pets from touching them.
If not bugs are threatening, you can press a button and turn the stainless steel zappers into solar accent lights. Each light measures 20 inches tall x 6 3/4 inches wide.
Allow a minimum of 3 feet of clearance on all sides of these lights for safety.
