Landscape lighting is the final step to elevating the look of your landscape design and securing your home. Lighting transforms your space visually. However, it also adds the increased protection of visibility at night.
Because landscape lighting is so easily customizable, you can do a lot of interesting things. From architectural lighting to lit columns, brick washing, uplighting, pathway lighting, pool, and patio lighting, and even tiki lighting, this addition is key to customizing your outdoor living space.
The sky is the limit with custom lighting for your outdoor living space. However, here are a few of our favorite features that make a big impact in your lighting plan if you are looking for some inspiration.
Architectural Lighting – Architectural lighting highlights the beauty of your home. The aesthetics of your landscape can be emphasized with lighting.
Column Lighting – By placing lights below, above, or on columns, you can customize the look of your column lighting to fit your style. Similar lighting techniques can highlight taller aspects of your landscaping, like hedges or trees.
Brick Washing and Uplighting – Brick washing is the practice of using lighting to highlight flat walls and areas of brick or stonework around your home. This brings the attention to a large surface, evenly distributing light to brighten your space.
Pathway Lighting – Low-voltage pathway lighting can visually map out walking areas, driveways, and paver pathways throughout your landscape design. Also, this is a great way to emphasize the functionality of your outdoor space, especially for evening entertaining.
Patio and Porch Lighting – Outdoor lighting on your exterior living spaces makes them usable and accessible at any time. Lighting your entertainment spaces creates an inviting ambiance so you will want to enjoy your outdoor living space even more.
Pool Lighting – Custom landscape lighting around your pool will seamlessly integrate it into the design of your landscape so it can be accessible for nighttime swimming.
As a safety feature, landscape lighting is important because often street lighting isn’t enough to protect your home. Additionally, homes with dark spots give easier access to intruders looking to enter your home unseen. Statistically, well-illuminated homes are less likely to be targeted by intruders. Well-lit homes serve as a deterrent to crime with the added benefit of an ambient, beautiful visual aspect.
