Having beautiful landscapes is a lot about ensuring that all the elements are incorporated in the right combination. We at Naturescapes Landscaping are focused on providing comprehensive landscape solutions that are tailored to your needs and budget.
One of the aspects that many property owners tend to overlook is outdoor lighting. While you enjoy your beautiful landscape during the daytime it all goes dark at night. The way to increase evening enjoyment and functionality is with a well-designed lighting system
Having the right type of lights installed around the decks, patios, pergolas and the nooks in your garden and yard, automatically makes these spaces more functional after dark. In many instances installing light fixtures in the outdoor spaces is part of a larger landscape project. However, we also handle standalone garden lighting projects.
FACTORS TO CONSIDER FOR OUTDOOR LIGHTING INSTALLATION
This is a specialized job and the different factors we focus on are:
- Layout of the outdoor spaces
- Presence of outdoor features and their position in the landscaping
- The length of the driveway, pathways, and walkways
- Presence of large trees and any decorative elements
- Your preferences
- The styling of your home
- Energy efficiency
TYPES OF GARDEN LIGHTING FIXTURES
Once we have all this information, we then discuss the outdoor lighting plans with you and understand what kind of lighting you prefer. The installations will be a combination of:
- Pathway & driveway lamps
- Tree and architectural detail lighting
- Lighting for steps & retaining walls
- Outdoor kitchen lighting
- Lights for decorative columns
The right kind of lighting also adds to the safety factor. Well lit gardens and yards act as a distinct deterrent to vandals & trespassers. Regardless of how you look at it, having well planned outdoor lighting will go a long way in enhancing the overall functionally, attractiveness and value of your property.
