Improve the Safety of Your Home by Illuminating Important Areas

Outdoor landscape lighting is an affordable way to beautify your home and create additional use out of your outdoor space. By lighting eating and grilling areas, patios, pools, and spas, you are enhancing outdoor gathering spaces that would otherwise be unusable at night! Lighting not only provides ambiance, but more importantly safety which is an important part of outdoor living spaces. This is especially important if you are going to be cooking outdoors in the evening. In order for your outdoor lighting to maximize the safety of your outdoor entertaining areas, pathways and cooking areas should be well lit, while other dining areas and spaces for relation could have adjustable lighting to fit each purpose.

Illuminating Specific Landscape Features

Lighting can also provide a sense of drama and showcase special landscape details. Illuminating the garden, stonework, and architectural details allows the home to be a beacon at night. Up lighting trees can add a sense of drama, especially if the tree has a striking shape. When the branches are lit from below, trees seem to come alive at night. When lit from below, trees and shrubs create cool shadows that dance along your landscape textures which can add to the design intent of the space. If you want to enjoy the visual aspects of your water feature, incorporating landscape lighting into your water elements has a great visual impact as water glows differently than anything else in the landscape.

Whether you choose to add a little light or a lot, the smallest bit of light can go a long way in the dark.
