A well-light is a type of landscaping light that is typically installed flush with the ground and directed upward to illuminate trees, architectural features, or other elements in a landscape. The light fixture is designed to be installed in a hole that is dug in the ground, with the top of the fixture level with the surface of the ground. The light can also be cast into concrete or openings cored into stone and pavers.
Well-light provide subtle, low-level lighting that highlights specific areas of the landscape rather than providing overall illumination. Well-lights are commonly used in outdoor lighting design to create a dramatic effect and draw attention to specific features in a landscape, such as trees, walls or architectural features.
