Brighten Your Home with Exterior Lighting

By October 5, 2015 Home Improvement

Professional lighting installed into your landscape not only serves a useable purpose, but also can make your landscape come alive at night. No one wants a completely dark yard around his or her house at night, and landscaping can look completely different at night with proper lighting than it looks like during the day. Usability of lighting in the landscape is it is good to keep burglars away from your home, serving as a great security option for your home that enhances your landscape at the same time.

One important aspect that goes into your lighting in your landscaping is efficiency. You want it to be wired correctly and you want the latest equipment to be used to ensure your electric bill is not too high. Other things to consider are the timing system of the lighting. You want the exterior lights all running on a timer that you can turn on or off any time you want, as well is set certain areas to turn on at different times.

Lighting can be installed in different ways to accent your trees, plants, and flowers that are in your landscape. Down lighting can really make the top of a plant shine at night. Up lighting will have the opposite effect which can make the same plant look much different. Other techniques include shadowing where the light is not shined directly onto the plant itself. The position of the lights in your landscape is very important to how everything will look at night. You also do not want the lights themselves standing out too much so using low profile light fixtures will make your landscape look normal during the daylight.

If you have a backyard with a pool and patio, you will need the proper lighting around it so you can use this area at night. You can have lighting built into retaining walls around your pool or you can place the lighting on top of a fence that might surround your pool and patio. Other lighting places could be on your house that shines down on the entire area. This is good for security and usability.

Having lights installed in your landscape is very important to the overall look of your house. It will make the exterior of any home look more established and luxurious. There are really endless lighting schemes to choose from when you are designing your landscape which is why it is important the company you use plans everything out before one light is installed.
