If you are reading this post you are most likely a landscape enthusiast, so not only have you begun thinking about how to dress yourself up for Halloween. But you are probably thinking about how you can adapt your landscape lighting to suit the Halloween festivities.
Considering the fact that landscape lighting is our passion we have put together a few tips to help you create a spooky Halloween lighting setup that doesn’t look ugly or take away from having a beautiful well kept property.
The first tip we have is to make sure that when you start planning your Halloween lighting that you aim to build upon your landscape lighting that is already in place. If you already have a professionally designed or maintained lighting setup you don’t want to undo all of the great work that was done just for a couple of days of Halloween fun. Find ways to add spooky elements to your current lighting setup that won’t require too much tear down or potentially risk damaging the appeal of your landscape lighting setup.
The next tip is to choose the right colors. Choosing colors like Blue, green and purple spotlights add the perfect spooky atmosphere for your front yard Halloween cemetery or spooky setup. Also, adding spotlights that illuminate any of your Halloween features is a good way to ensure that you follow the rules of our first tip, which is to add to your existing landscape lighting setup.
Spotlights are easy to set up and take down without disrupting your original landscape lighting setup. Also, they make it easier to plan an attention-grabbing Halloween lighting setup that will draw people’s eyes to whatever spooky elements you want to highlight.
Now that we have you thinking about colors, let’s talk about floodlights!
Aiming spotlights at your spooky skeletons, tombstones, and ghosts will make them look like they have an ominous glow.
If you want to make your setup even more versatile you can use multicolored led spotlights that allow you to change the color of your Halloween lighting from an app on your phone which makes the spookily creative possibilities endless!
Using floodlights is a quick and easy way to take your Halloween lighting to the next level while preserving the original beauty of your landscape lighting.
Our final tip is to be creative with your use of shadow. While it is obvious that a lot of people focus on where the light is landing in their Halloween lighting setup make sure you don’t forget that the right use of shadow can go a very very long way in terms of creating that perfect spooky Halloween lighting setup that you are going for. Especially when it comes to creating a spooky scary atmosphere it is often what you don’t see that really goes the distance in terms of creating that super spooky perfect Halloween lighting atmosphere.
