Your home and property are special to you, and you use your outdoor spaces in a way that is unique to you and your family. For maximum evening enjoyment, select an outdoor lighting professional to design, install and maintain your landscape lighting.
During the day, you may look at your flowers and garden beds, enjoy vegetable or herb gardening, have play and seating areas, deck and cooking areas. Walkways are important aspects of your property, providing access to the areas of your yard. In the evening and hours of darkness, you probably have different needs in your backyard living areas – sitting and visiting, cooking, relaxing with friends, sitting by the fire or chimenea. How you view your yard at night – if you can view it at all, may change your perspective on outdoor lighting.
Is your yard completely dark or have you flooded the area with bright floodlights? Did you make a trip to the home improvement store and come home with a box of inexpensive little fixtures that you didn’t really know where to put, and turned out to be rather dim and disappointing?
It’s usually best to consult with a professional lighting designer and have them work together with you to create a satisfying lighting design that will suit your needs and desires. Professional grade lighting equipment lasts longer and performs better, and professional quality state-of-the-art fixtures live up to your high expectations and offer you a product that will provide beauty, reliability and longevity.
The secret of knowing exactly what to use and where to put it are the arena of the professional landscape lighting designer. Most professional designers work with you individually to design a plan that enhances the architectural features of your home and best aspects of your property using a creative palette of light and shadow to set the perfect mood. Each project is as individual as you are. Hire an experienced and educated staff that knows how to take full advantage of modern lighting technology to set the stage for your lifestyle. From formal events to casual gatherings, the most important aspect of your lighting design is to create evening pleasure for your family.
In addition to our providing design/build services, you should ask your outdoor lighting designer if their projects are offered with a workmanship warranty and maintenance agreement to optimize your investment. Plant growth and Mother Nature provide constant change to your property, so your will need to ensure that the original design is maintained over time. Have a professional clean, adjust, re-lamp, trim plant material and move fixtures to create the optimum effect, annually at a minimum, and more often if you have landscape plant material that changes frequently or is fast-growing.
Additionally, your designer may recommend re-positioning fixtures, changing lamp wattages and beam spreads as your plant material matures. These changes can make significant differences in the voltage drop and greatly affect the appearance of your lighting design, so a professional should make these changes. Your outdoor lighting designer should be a long-term partner for progress in your outdoor environment.
Professionally installed outdoor lighting not only increases the security and safety of your home and its surroundings, it expands your living space to the outdoors and makes your home, lawn, and garden more beautiful, more functional, and more inviting. The benefits of outdoor lighting for your home, landscape, poolside, patio, and deck are endless.
