Installing outdoor or landscape lighting can be a great addition of beauty, safety, and curb appeal.
Some considerations to keep in mind:
- Decide what you want to light.
- Select the appropriate lighting techniques.
- Select the appropriate lighting fixtures and accessories.
- Choose the power supply, either line or (more commonly) low voltage.
- Select the appropriate bulbs.
A low voltage lighting system operates on a 12-volt system, which requires a transformer to function. There are multiple advantages over a 120-volt system for smaller properties. These systems are energy efficient and can offer more light output, and the risk of electric shock is minimal.
Outdoor lighting and landscape lighting can help extend the usable hours of a given space, and can drastically alter the mood of an environment. There are many different types of lighting systems available, using different kinds of light bulbs from LEDs to CFL bulbs and traditional incandescent lights. Some lights will be used more for effect, while others will be meant to cast as many lumens as possible. Typically, the brighter a light is the more expensive it is to operate, as the energy uses are greater.
Solar lighting systems are an excellent solution for areas that want to conserve on energy usage, but still want the ample lighting at night afforded by hard-wired lighting systems. Solar lights are, of course, dependent upon their exposure to the sun, and so placing them in shady areas won’t yield satisfactory lighting at night.
Care must be taken when mounting lighting systems to avoid damaging plants or disturbing their photo period, as many plants depend on a certain period of darkness to bloom. We will employ a variety of mounting techniques to ensure your space is properly lighted without harming elements of your landscape.
Artisan lights can create interesting effects and drastically enhance an environment’s personality. They are great for illuminating walkways or seating areas without glaring in your eyes. Spotlights are great for emphasizing certain elements of your landscape and can highlight the focal point you want to showcase.
