In Landscape Lighting we feel that there are three key elements to represent the answers to the question “why light?”
It is important to note that not all of these are required when choosing how your lighting will appear. It is important that the elements you request are fulfilled.
1. Aesthetics & Beauty
This would seem to be the most obvious reason to light. Most people who look up landscape lighting on the internet are looking to see beautiful images of trees, pathways and other garden features elegantly lit.
A well-balanced display of eye-catching light will wow not only you, but the guests that you are sure to invite in to see the results!
2. Safety & Security
When it comes to providing safety and security through light, it is so important to make sure this is achieved 100%.
Changes of elevation, steps, railings, and pathways are key areas to light with regard to safety. Too bright can make for overly dark spots and ‘unknowns’ in the property. The right light level not only gives safe passage but also creates somewhat of a barrier beyond the light, keeping intruders outside.
Getting your family and friends on and off of the property at night is most important.
With the ever-growing popularity of the ‘stay-cation’, light is an integral part of the yard. Patios, decks, pergolas, gazebos, and pool and hot tub areas deserve the proper light levels to be able to enjoy your investment well into the evening.
Whether you are enjoying a dip in the pool or a glass of wine, light will make it that much more inviting!
