Moonlighting in Dallas: The Basics

Moonlighting your space means adding specially designed lights that give off a soft glow from above. Generally, we place these lights high in the trees in your outdoor space; alternatively, we can place them high on structures. The idea is to create a soft, silvery glow that creates natural shadows that resemble moonlight.

How Does Moonlighting Work?

Moonlighting uses a technique called downlighting, which provides a good, widespread illumination source. In its simplest form, downlighting uses lamps angled down toward the ground rather than up (like many standard landscape lighting projects have). The result is a nice, natural appearance with light filtering between tree limbs because the lamps mimic natural outdoor light.

The key to good moonlighting is to conceal the light sources. Ideally, you’ll have lamps in tall trees or under hardscaping; that way, all your guests will see is the resulting light – not the fixture itself.

Going for a Natural Look With Moonlighting

Moonlighting is a great way to add a natural look to your space. However, it takes special planning to create just the right ambiance. The lights should be layered, crossing each other’s paths just like natural nighttime light does when it comes from the moon. That way, it looks more realistic and won’t look like harsh overhead lighting.

What Kind of Lights Do You Use for Moonlighting?

LED lights are best for creating the perfect effect. That’s because you can choose just the right color temperature with LEDs. They’re also more energy efficient and run cooler than conventional light bulbs, saving you some cash while making your space a bit safer.

Is Moonlighting Good for Security?

Many people find that moonlighting is good for security because it illuminates a large space from high up. 

You won’t have to worry about separate home security lights, and your lighting won’t bother neighbors. 

When moonlighting is done properly, it can illuminate your entire space. 

Though moonlighting isn’t primarily used for security purposes, the fact that you can cast so much light across a large space makes it an attractive way to provide a little boost of security for your home.

Can You Install Moonlighting on Hardscaping?

The term hardscape refers to the non-living elements used in your landscaping. You can install landscape lighting on hardscape elements such as patios, stone walls, wooden arbors, gazebos and more. It’s possible to create a moonlighting look or an uplighting look on these elements – or a combination of the two.

Dallas Landscape Lighting evaluates your entire landscape to determine the best places for lights to create the ideal aesthetic. Our team will talk to you about your vision and develop a plan to create a look you – and your guests – will love.

What if You Don’t Have Many Trees?

It’s okay if you don’t have many trees. Dallas Landscape Lighting can still create a wonderful ambiance in your backyard space. Whether we install lighting on hardscaping elements, along your fence or around your house, we’ll be able to put together a plan that makes your outdoor living space a wonderful place to spend time. And don’t worry – if you start planting trees in your space now, we’ll still be here working on your friends’ and neighbors’ landscape lighting by the time they’re big enough to illuminate.
