Outdoor Spotlights & Flood Lights
Why We Love Spotlights & Flood Lights
Outdoor spotlights and flood lights are great ways to highlight unique features of your landscape. They instantly add drama, creating fascinating shadows in trees and adding visual height to walls and architecture. While powerful and able to reach great heights, landscape spot lights and flood lights are usually low voltage, and they easily adjust so you can point them right where you want a splash of decorative light.
Where Outdoor Spot & Flood Lights Work Best
Appropriate for both the front and backyard, landscape spotlights and flood lamps are put to their best use at the base of large trees or pointed toward stone work. The light brings out textures and shapes one might not otherwise notice. And when paired with other outdoor and landscape lighting, these spotlights will create a well-rounded lighting scheme. For commercial areas including exteriors of restaurants or hotels, large outdoor landscape spotlights draw attention and make the business easier to see from the road. You'll also appreciate the welcoming presence they establish in these locations. Whatever you may need an outdoor spotlight for, you are sure to find a stylish option here.
A Spotlight or Flood Light for Every Style
With any outdoor lighting fixture comes a variety of styles to choose from and these spotlights appeal to a number of exterior aesthetics. For traditional landscapes with heavy arborous areas, look to the spotlights and flood lights from Kichler to help create dramatic shapes and shadows. These options have flexible heads to rearrange and maneuver to your liking. Hinkley Lighting offers a multitude of contemporary and modern spotlights, with options that are simply placed in the ground with a stake. In-ground and recessed spotlights are perfected by BEGA and you'll find many LED flood lights here too. These decorative LED fixtures combine elements of stylish design with energy efficiency to really accent your landscape.
Choosing the Best Spotlights & Flood Lights
First, you will need to determine the purpose of a spotlight or flood light. Many of these landscape light fixtures featured directional heads, allowing you direct light toward trees or other elements of your backyard. You'll also find plenty of in-ground and recessed well lights you can use as a flood light or spotlight. These options provide exceptional uplighting for trees, fountains, garden accents and signs (for commercial locations). With any outdoor light fixture, you'll want to verify it is UL listed and safe for outdoor use. A damp or wet location rating is necessary for landscapes where the presence of water is inevitable. Finally, look to our information on line voltage vs low voltage lighting to better understand which style is best for your space.

Other Great Options
In addition to an in-ground spotlight or flood light, highlight outdoor areas that are closer to the ground with the help of path lights and bollard lights. These short, stylish path lights and bollards provide welcomed decorative character to the backyard while also creating safe, guiding light for pathways and walkways. And spotlights and outdoor flood lights are just one piece of a complete outdoor lighting scheme -- consider adding outdoor sconces, deck lighting, flushmounts and post lights to take your outdoor lighting full circle.
