One of the greatest summer pleasures is a nighttime swim in your swimming pool. What is not one of the greatest pleasures is tripping over things or falling into your pool due to inadequate outdoor lighting. Pool lighting can increase the safety of those who swim and can add needed ambiance to your property. Make your pool a warm and inviting location for a summer dip. Whether your pool is in-ground or above ground, outdoor pool lighting will create a look that is not only warm and inviting, but safe.
Include Foliage in Your Outdoor Lighting Design
To give your Oakville landscape lighting a natural ambiance, consider placing the landscape lighting in planted areas around your pool. If this isn’t an option, why not plant some flower beds along the pathway around your pool? The foliage connection is a nice design element that will help enhance your outdoor lighting and tie the entire look together. Our tiki lamps can give your pool the accent lighting that your backyard has been lacking, while providing a nice amount of light to see with.
A great landscaping idea is to place an ornamental tree in the yard with a four to five foot planting bed around it. Place some lights in the planting bed and they will cast a warm glow into the pool water.
If you have large trees in your yard, why not place one of our down lights in them so they can shine directly on to your pool?
And of course, if you have a pool waterfall, you simply cannot neglect it. Ask us for more information on how to highlight water features!

Be Sure to Keep Your Oakville Landscape Lighting Practical!
Aesthetics are important when it comes to your outdoor lighting design, but when a pool is involved, safety must always come first. However, safety does not need to come at the expense of the natural beauty of your landscape lighting.
Keep your friends and family safe by making sure the area around the pool is well-lit. This can be achieved in a variety of ways:
Use our aforementioned down light to shine some light on to the pool and the surrounding areas.
Illuminate a pathway with the soft light of an area light
