Outdoor lighting can offer basic features, such as security and safety. This can easily be achieved with very little effort.
We view landscape lighting as an extension to your outdoor environment. When the sun goes down and the lights come on, the results of a properly installed lighting system can be unbelievable. It can extend the time you spend in your yard, having late night barbeques.
Mood lighting is probably the most requested aspect of outdoor lighting. In this type of lighting scheme, we will focus on highlighting some of the features in your yard.
Water features can have a dramatic glow to them in the pitch black sky. Address markers and rocks can be lit to feature practicality and still offer a soft look to your yard.
Lighting should not be overpowering in your yard. During the daylight you do not want your outdoor lighting fixtures to be out of place. A good lighting install should blend in with your surroundings.
Colored lenses can be added to the majority of features which is great at Christmas. You may not have to add additional Christmas lights at your property, if you choose this option. When you consider this, it helps offset the cost of your landscape lighting system. Most fixtures, if run conservatively throughout the winter, will generate enough heat to repel the snowfall.
The majority of our systems are low-voltage based. This means all of your lights will be receiving 12 volts versus 120 volts. The benefits of these systems are many. The need for permits and a journeyman electrician do not apply. The availability of expansion is much more forgiving than that of a 120 volt system. It is very safe for customers to work with during bulb exchange or repair.
The selection of lighting fixtures designed for outdoor use exceeds that of 120 volt options. Control options can be as simple as a timer-based system, or wireless remote controls can be configured as well.
If you currently have a home automation system, we may be able to integrate our lights to be controlled by your existing network.
Outdoor lighting is one of the hottest trends in the landscape marketplace. Once you start you will not stop!
