By Keenan Baird, PHC and Fine Gardening Manager

Illuminating Your Home:
Outdoor low voltage lighting is a popular way to enhance the beauty and safety of your home. It not only adds a touch of elegance to your outdoor space but also provides safety and security by illuminating dark areas. In this essay, we will explore the different types of outdoor low voltage lighting, the benefits it offers, and how to install and maintain it.
There are different types of low voltage lighting that can be used for outdoor purposes. Path lights are used to light up walkways and driveways. Spotlights are used to highlight specific features of the house, such as a garden or a statue. Floodlights, on the other hand, are used to light up a large area, such as a backyard or a patio. Each type of lighting serves a specific purpose and can be used to create different effects.

Outdoor low voltage lighting offers numerous benefits. First, it enhances the aesthetic appeal of the house by creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. It can transform a dull and uninviting outdoor space into a beautiful and welcoming area. Second, it provides safety and security by illuminating dark areas, which can help prevent accidents and deter burglars. Third, it increases the value of the property by adding a unique and attractive feature that potential buyers will appreciate.

To install outdoor low voltage lighting, it is important to plan the lighting design carefully. You should consider the purpose of the lighting, the location of the fixtures, and the type of bulbs to be used. It is also important to choose the right fixtures and bulbs that are suitable for outdoor use. Once the fixtures and bulbs are selected, the transformer and wiring can be installed. It is important to ensure that the wiring is properly installed and buried to avoid any accidents.

Outdoor low voltage lighting is an excellent way to enhance the beauty and safety of your home. It offers numerous benefits, including increased property value, improved safety and security, and enhanced aesthetic appeal. By carefully planning the lighting design, choosing the right fixtures and bulbs, and installing the transformer and wiring properly, you can create a beautiful and inviting outdoor space that you can enjoy for years to come.

Advantages To Beginning New 2024 Outdoor Living Project Design & Planning Now vs. Waiting Until Spring

By Joel Tomlin, III – Landscape Designer

2024 Project Scheduling:
As we all sit and bask in our holiday food and gift recovery period in front of warm fires and under dimly lit skies, most folks can hardly imagine thinking about spring and summer landscape projects.

Contrary to popular belief, we at the Milosi Team believe that now is the exact best time to begin thinking about one’s desired outdoor living project for 2024. Engaging with one of our seasoned landscape designers to plan, design, and prepare for construction of your specific project is the next best step to take to accomplish your goal.

The following is a short list of reasons why it makes sense to begin your project design, planning, and construction contract preparation in January for a 2024 landscape project:

  • Typically for just about anything in life, the more time and energy you put into preparation, the better the outcome.
  • It takes longer to design and prepare a construction contract for a landscape and or outdoor living project than most people think.
  • Waiting to begin the process until the weather gets warm is what the majority of customers do which then puts you in line to wait as we are gratefully in demand and experts at our craft.
  • Designing and finalizing a construction contract now not only puts you higher on the list for construction scheduling but allows you to realize and enjoy the final product sooner giving you more warmer days to enjoy your outdoor space the rest of the year.
  • Best options for materials and sizes – As demand increases with warmer weather so does demand on materials. Some materials in our vibrant economy can actually be used up quickly at the beginning of the warm season and end up on backorder or become completely unavailable.

The early bird gets the worm! Reach out to one of Milosi’s design professionals today to schedule a time to discuss your 2024 outdoor living project dreams.
