Tips & Tricks for Using your Minneapolis Landscape Lighting as Holiday Lighting

If the thought of climbing ladders and spending a freezing cold Minneapolis Saturday outdoors for 3 weeks of holiday lighting enjoyment makes you cringe, we have a few ideas for you. First of all, next year, call us, we’ll be happy to design and install your holiday lighting. We’ll even come back and take it down and store it for you.

But, if you are looking for other alternatives; ideas that will give you a sophisticated look with little effort. Here are a few easy tips and tricks for transforming your existing landscape lighting into a magical holiday display. Ideas you can implement for a last minute festive look.

Wreath on the front of a home

Hang wreaths where focal lighting and wall wash lighting is already focused.

Statue lighting

Replace illuminated focal features like small statues and fountains with holiday themed items, like reindeer, Christmas trees or even Santa Clause himself.

Ornament hanging on a snow covered tree

Make use of gorgeous tree lighting by hanging iridescent or shiny ornaments and bulbs from the branches. The reflecting results will be one-of-a-kind.

Beautiful home with a Christmas wreath on a window

Add ribbons, garland and other holiday swag to posts, gazebos, your home, and landscape walls that are illuminated directly or with nearby ambient landscape lighting.

Green lighting on a tree

Swap out lenses or lamps for holiday themed colored lenses. Red and Green for Christmas, Blue for Hannukah or go with a New Year’s amber/gold color.
