Main Photo OakdailLandscapers shine the spotlight on plants and hardscaping features.

To give these clients an inviting backyard they could enjoy even after the sun went down, McKay Landscape Lighting in Omaha, Nebraska, illuminated their steps, paths and trees. “The main goal was to highlight the new and old trees, especially the monster bur oak,” says Andrew Coleman, outdoor lighting designer for McKay Landscape Lighting. They installed 13 copper path lights, nine copper spots, five down lights and 50 copper step lights on the Ipe deck steps. Besides highlighting the hardscape and foliage features, the lights also helped the homeowners and guests safely maneuver around the once-dark areas in the backyard.
