So discreet, the well light.
Partially buried or sitting flush to the ground, a well light casts a beam upward in a landscape. It’s an ideal way to highlight a tree or to create drama against a wall. Use well lights in situations where you want fixtures that disappear seamlessly into their surroundings.
Here are 10 of our favorite well lights:
