Choose Wisely

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.

Spotlights

Commonly used for up-lighting, spotlights are perfect for showcasing a variety of features, such as statues, plants, trees, and walls.

Step Lights

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. 

Flood Lights

These landscape lights are great for lighting up an area all at once, such as a patio, backyard, or driveway.

Bollard Lights

They resemble metal posts with a light at the top, ranging in height, and are best installed along walkways.

Well Lights

These lights are typically installed within the ground, pointing up toward a vertical feature like a column or tree.

Hardscape Lights

Typically hidden, hardscape lights are integrated into hardscape features, such as stone, brick, wood, metal, and more!

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. 

Will I have control over when my lights turn on and off?
Our team can install a system for you to set a timer or turn your lights on or off whenever you’d like. We’re able to fit these kinds of features into almost any budget. We’ll cover a wide range of potential features you may want in your landscape lighting during the planning phase.
How long does landscape lighting take to install?
Most landscape lighting is installed in a day without delays.
Does landscape lighting require you to dig up my yard?
No. A majority of landscape lighting wires and cables are buried underneath mulch in your flowerbed or landscaping. If trenching is required, it is very minimal.
What bulbs are best suited for my landscape lighting?
We recommend using LEDs because of how long they’ll last and how much they can save you. Their energy consumption is very low and will save you a lot of money over time.
