Where Do You Need Landscape Lighting?
Our outdoor yard is an integral extension of our indoor space. Make the most out of your investment with the help of landscape lighting, it will add to the evening beauty of your curb appeal. But keep in mind, when it comes to lighting your yard, a little goes a long way.
Front Door – Lighting at the front door acts as a beacon that shows people where to enter. It also prevents tripping and it helps locate the doorbell or keyhole.
Walkway and Steps – Lead your guests to the front door with path lights set along the walkway. For a more pleasing look, choose soft, non-glaring fixtures that direct most of the light downward.
TIP: You shouldn’t place the lights all in a straight line – this will create a runway effect.
Driveway and Garage – For most driveways, a few low-shaded, low-voltage spread lights will give off enough illumination.
TIP: If you want to save more on energy costs, use a motion sensor. This will turn the lights on when someone enters the designated space.
Decks and Patios – Enjoy your deck after dark and illuminate specific task areas This can include the cooking or bathroom area, as well as railings and seating areas.
Landscape Features – Add some drama to your front or backyard and spotlight a focal point, such as a tree or a fountain. Uplighting provided by spotlights accentuates the texture of tree trunks and creates a pleasing glow on foliage.
TIP: Make sure you focus spotlight beams away from windows or neighbors.
