You may be able to install a simple lighting fixture yourself, but to ensure you get the most out of your space and create stunning effects without skyrocketing power bills, use a professional landscape lighting company who is familiar with fixtures and arrangement.
Benefits of Outdoor Lighting
Whether you’re spending time outdoors, or just driving home after work, your home should rise up to meet you. In addition to the beauty of outdoor lighting, functional lights add safety, value, and comfort in and around your home.
Safety – A well-lit landscape gives your home a feeling of security and maintenance. A yard that is lit up at night discourages trespassers and thieves. Lights with motions detectors can illuminate areas if someone is on your property after dark to keep family and friends safe and deter criminals.
Value – Curb appeal is not just for business hours. Beautiful lighting gives a good impression to the entire neighborhood and makes your home appear warmer and more inviting as opposed to a dark, drab exterior.
Comfort – Outdoor lighting can extend your living areas by providing comfortable outdoor spaces for entertaining. A combination of uplights, as well as structural lighting, gives the perfect amount of illumination to enjoy the outdoors all night long.
Types of Landscape Lighting
Making the most of your landscape lighting depends on what your landscape looks like and what features are involved.
Trees: Misplaced tree lights can look like a hovering UFO. Our company’s professionals avoid this by ensuring that the trunk, as well as the foliage, is bathed in light by installing lighting from both the top and the bottom.
Planting Beds: Garden beds look beautiful with lighting overhead to guide your eye across the bed, without overdoing it.
Home Face: The face of the home should be illuminated with the correct fixture and angle to accent architectural details and light up key areas to help prevent robbery.
Garden Walls: Professionally placed lighting can bring texture out and accent property lines along garden walls.
Focal Points: If you have a flowing water feature, charming tree swing, or beautiful arbor area, lighting can enhance these areas, as well.
From safety to celebrations, outdoor lighting creates a warm environment, enhances the beauty of your space, and gives your family additional security throughout the night. Give us a call to see how our company can help you to enhance your home after dark.
