Given the long hours that many of us have to put in to commute back and forth to work, extending the useful time to enjoy your deck, patio, or garden can be well worth the investment. Additionally, with the increasing concern about crime, it is comforting to know that a well designed outdoor lighting system may significantly decrease the chances of being a victim. Low voltage landscape lighting systems are safe, economical, energy efficient and provide numerous benefits for modern homeowners. Lighting can be used to provide safe access near paths, driveways and entry areas. Outdoor lighting increases security by discouraging potential intruders. The beauty of garden and home can be dramatically enhanced by showcasing architectural and plant features with dramatic lighting techniques. One common technique is up lighting, which focuses light and attention on an object from a low fixture location. The object can be a shrub, tree or architectural feature like a gazebo or arbor. Bullet or well type fixtures are specified according to the mature size of the plant or the size of the hardscape area to be illuminated. Path lighting uses low fixtures which direct illumination down and outward. These fixtures are shielded on top to prevent glare. They are used along walks, stairs and anywhere else that safe night access is required.
Another technique is down lighting, or moonlighting. Usually accomplished with bullet type fixtures placed above eye level on a structure (or even in a tree), this technique illuminates general areas for safety, security and aesthetics. Fixtures and lamps are chosen for the required brightness and width of illumination. Backlighting, or silhouette lighting, provides a special effect by illuminating a fairly large surface (like a wall) using a wash light fixture. This causes objects in front of the lighting to appear as silhouettes. The technique of shadowing also uses lights directed toward walls, but they are placed in front of the objects, so shadows play on the wall. Numerous other techniques, and combinations of techniques, are available to increase your home security, safety, enjoyment and value. The practical and aesthetic effects created by landscape lighting are limited only by the existing features of the architecture and landscaping and by the creativity of the designer. We offer Residential and Professional Grade lighting products. Packages include specific-purpose outdoor fixtures, weatherproof transformers and specialty insulated cables. In addition, there are a variety of accessories a client may choose to include in a Landscape Lighting Solution package.
