Landscape Lighting for Aesthetic Appeal & Security
Regardless of your landscape, whether commercial or residential, having outdoor light fixtures can make your property appear more inviting, improve its security and still be cost effective. Whether you are installing landscape lighting yourself, or hiring a professional landscaping lighting company, it’s important to know the science behind a system. Make sure you’re illuminating the proper features and characteristics of the landscape strategically while taking advantage of low-voltage energy efficient options.
Finding the right points of a landscape that enhance curb appeal can be challenging. The key is to think about a property’s trees, planting beds, home facade, garden walls, and focal points. If you want to highlight trees or shrubs, consider using well, bullet, flood, or downlights. A well light is subtle and can be hidden in your lawn. A bullet light fixture is good for smaller trees and shrubs that need specific lighting. A flood light gives off a wider light and is ideal for tall trees or the backside of houses. Downlights are installed in tall trees and can make a property look as if it’s being illuminated from the moon.
