Don’t Curb Beauty After Dark
Curb appeal, of course, is paramount to any property; and the addition of outdoor lighting is one of the best ways of highlighting your home’s best features even after darkness sets in. You’ve invested a great deal of time and money into making your home beautiful, and the pride you take in that shouldn’t be dimmed by the dark. Consult with a local landscape maintenance company for landscape lighting design ideas that will add both visual appeal and functionality to your property, so that you can truly light up everything that makes your home stand out from the rest.
Lighten and Brighten
Though you might assume that you can’t get much enjoyment time out of your outdoor living areas once the sun goes down, adding outdoor lighting can extend the time you spend outside long past sunset and well into the evening. Garden lights will add ambiance and provide the perfect way to accent to garden beds and even water features like pools, waterfalls, and fountains without overwhelming your space. If you want to shed even more light on things, however, you might want to consider more focused lighting features around seating and entertaining areas so that nightfall doesn’t have to chase you inside.
To find the perfect type of outdoor lighting for your needs, consider your overall goals. Do you want to add safety to your walkways? Do you want to accent your landscaping? Do you want to entertain in the evening or go for a moonlit swim? All of these questions will determine the size of your design, the cost, and type of products that will achieve your objective and leave you lit up in delight. It’s all about technique, so think about a professional as your best resource.
Some of the most common techniques used to create the perfect outdoor lighting designs include:
- Path and walkway lighting, which are a series of light fixtures installed to border walkways and paths, directing light down so that walking becomes less of a safety concern.
- Uplighting, which are light fixtures installed in the ground with beams directed upward to set off and illuminate landscaping features.
- Deck and patio lighting, which provide the ideal amount of light in areas of outdoor living.
- Spotlighting, which concentrate areas of light directly at a specific feature to make it stand out and set it apart.
Whatever the size your property might be, it should leave you glowing with pride. Consider the benefits of adding outdoor lighting so that you can see your yard reach its full potential, no matter what time of day it is.
