Tree Lighting Design TO Brighten Up Your home

Every home has its unique focal point. Some have a beautiful brick façade, while others feature large, seamless windows, but for many it’s their landscape and especially their featured trees. Tree lighting is a key component to outdoor lighting design, by creating depth and concluding the overall design. At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Virginia Beach, we apply three main techniques for tree lighting.

Types of Tree Lighting Design


Spotlighting is one of the most obvious tree lighting techniques but also one of the best. Spotlighting allows you to appreciate a statement tree all day long. Spotlighting a tree can extend your sight line further into your yard. These fixtures are installed at the base of the tree and are pointed up towards it. Installing the lights at ground level illuminates the tree in its entirety from the trunk to the tree branch.


Moonlighting is meant to subtly illuminate your tree. The goal behind moonlighting is to mirror the effect of light from the moon. These fixtures are installed high in the tree branches and positioned downward. Moonlighting is a beautiful technique for cozy outdoor fireplaces and living spaces.


Shadow tree lighting adds depth and texture to your Virginia Beach home. This lighting technique focuses not only on the tree but also the shadowing it creates. The fixtures for this technique are placed in front of the tree and are cast at an angle to place the shadow in a desired direction.

Understanding the Importance of Tree Lighting

Accentuating Natural Beauty

Trees are naturally majestic, and with the right lighting, you can accentuate their grandeur even further. The intricate patterns of the leaves, the ruggedness of the bark, and the architectural silhouette of the branches can all be highlighted beautifully with well-placed lights. When you illuminate trees, you're not just adding light to your yard; you're elevating the artistry of nature.

Seasonal Display Adjustments

Different seasons bring about different aesthetics for trees. From the blooming flowers of spring to the rich colors of autumn, tree lighting can be adjusted to suit the season. This allows homeowners in Virginia Beach to have a dynamic display that changes as the year progresses, making their property stand out in the neighborhood throughout the year.
