Showcasing Your Home’s Best Features at Night
Landscape lighting is used to accentuate specific details of your home, regardless of whether it’s landscaping or architectural qualities.
The Purpose of Landscape Lighting
When done right, landscape lighting is the best way to showcase the beauty of your home. It not only adds comfort to your home but also safety, security, and appeal. These elements significantly increase the appeal of your home while deterring potential intruders from your home. Of course, it has to be done the right way. Lighting handled improperly can showcase the wrong features and contribute to light pollution. Hire a professional to reap all the benefits of landscape lighting:
Increased safety around stairs, walkways, elevation changes, and other paths.
Types of Landscape Lighting
There are a lot of landscape lighting fixtures to choose from, many of them offering different qualities. Our team can help you select which lighting fixtures are suited for the best aspects of your home and landscaping.
Commonly used for up-lighting, spotlights are perfect for showcasing a variety of features, such as statues, plants, trees, and walls.
Step lights are an excellent solution for those looking to light up where they’re walking and prevent tripping or falling where elevation changes reside.
These landscape lights are great for lighting up an area all at once, such as a patio, backyard, or driveway.
They resemble metal posts with a light at the top, ranging in height, and are best installed along walkways.
These lights are typically installed within the ground, pointing up toward a vertical feature like a column or tree.
Typically hidden, hardscape lights are integrated into hardscape features, such as stone, brick, wood, metal, and more!

Landscape Lighting FAQs
How much energy will my lights use?
The amount of energy consumed depends on the type of lights you choose. Some lights can be solar-powered, while others are directly connected to your home’s wiring. To conserve the most energy, we recommend using LED bulbs for a minimal increase in your utility bill.
