How Far Apart Should Garden Lighting Be?


Determine Spacing by Amount of Light

  • Place your garden lighting far enough apart that the circles of light being cast don't unnecessarily overlap. Bring one of your garden lights outside at night and illuminate it. Measure the distance between the light fixture itself and the edge of the light it casts; this is how far apart to place your garden lights.

Use Fewer Lights in Some Cases

  • If you only want to illuminate a certain element of your garden, or if lighting for safety isn't a concern because you aren't using your garden lights as path lights, placing them further apart is acceptable.

Bottom Line

  • If overall garden lighting is your main concern, make your garden well-lit, even at night, by placing them "light distance" away from one another.
