Use Hanging Lights in the Gazebo
You can make a gazebo look more romantic at night with good lighting ideas. One is to install a sconce light on each post of the gazebo. You can also use hanging LED lights to accentuate the outline of the roof. Another way is to hang several lines of hanging lights inside starting from the middle section of the roof extending outwards. Some lights along the path walk leading to the gazebo will also give it a more dramatic effect. When you want to simplify installation, you can just settle for metal or iron chandeliers for a rustic vibe.
Accentuate Trees with Outdoor Lights
Use string lights and decorate bulky trees like your traditional Christmas tree. Other than the usual yellow bulbs, you may use strip lights and hang them vertically on different areas of the tree. Thinner trees like palm trees are decorated with mini led lights. Focus only on wrapping the trunk or wrap the entire trunk all the way up to the leaves. A less complicated lighting idea is to use a landscape spotlight to accentuate a tree. Use two spotlights and place them opposite each other to produce a cross-beam of light. To achieve the best effect, choose a tall tree with well-detailed branches.
Install Lights Around the Pool Area

Instead, switch to lanterns and circle several of these around the pool. Underwater lighting is also a good way to make the pool inviting to use even at night. Aside from the charismatic effect, underwater lighting also improves safety. If an accent wall is present, you can also use the space to decorate with modern lights.
