Here are some helpful hints to consider when planning your lighting plan:
Use Different Forms of Lighting:
There are a variety of lights that serve different purposes. A representative here at Outdoor Lighting Perspectives can also suggest whether solar lighting would be right for you.
- Uplighting—Uplighting is placing a light beneath a landscaping feature you would like to highlight
- Wall lighting—Illuminate a small area near you house with elegance
- Highlight—similar to spot lights, they are lights placed on the ground and angled to highlight architecture or landscaping
- Incognito—giving functionality to your garden or walkway with light structures that appear to be something inconspicuous, like a rock
Give Your Lighting Plan a Focus:
Using lights to highlight the strengths of your lawn, pool, or patio can draw attention away from less attractive areas, like sheds.
Vary the Fixtures:
Different styles and light types can add variety to your home’s exterior.
Stick to Warm Lights:
If you would like to add a variety of colors we would be happy to help. We do recommend warm light.
Lighting your yard, patio, or BBQ takes a lot of work. We would be happy to take the undertaking off your hands and build an outdoor lighting system you are going to want to show-off! You might be tempted to try and wire the system yourself, but home electrical work accounts for an estimated 51,000 fires a year! We can safely and expertly bring to light your dream lighting system.
