Does your landscape look as good at night as it does during the day? Landscape lighting is a valuable tool for homeowners everywhere. A lighting system is an excellent way to keep your home safe and secure, and it also boosts curb appeal by highlighting your property’s landscape and architecture. Professionals use landscape lighting design strategies to make your property look its best. Consider how these landscape lighting tips can improve your home’s aesthetics, and contact the team at Sposato Irrigation for landscape lighting design, installation, and maintenance services.
Illuminate Trees and Plants
Does your property have a gorgeous tree or rows of beautiful flowers? Show them off! Enhance your favorite plants and trees by lighting them up at night. Installing a few lights around the base of a tree provides multi-directional light and dynamic visual appeal, making your trees pop even in the dark. You can also install fixtures around your garden beds, shrubs, and walkways, highlighting your landscape and eliminating hiding spots for trespassers.
Secure Your Property with Landscape Lighting
Another essential function of outdoor landscape lighting is increased security. With strategic lighting, your home is much less likely to be burglarized. Thieves are less inclined to try to sneak in a window or through a side door when the lighting reveals them to all the neighbors. Instead, they’ll look for a house that is not well-lit. Similarly, landscape lighting will also reduce accidents such as slips and falls on walkways, steps, and driveways.
Extend Your Outdoor Space with Landscape Lighting
While the lighting design in your front yard is mostly about curb appeal, the backyard is mainly about functional use. Of course, you can still illuminate some unique features, such as trees, shrubs, and flowers, but the design also focuses on lighting up the spaces you use at night. Whether you have a patio, an outdoor kitchen, or a pool, the proper lighting will ensure you can use those spaces to the fullest, even after the sun goes down.
Consider the Angle of Your Lighting
Consider the height and angle of your new light fixtures throughout your property. Angling fixtures upwards can make trees, bushes, and architecture seem larger and more dramatic. Downward-facing bulbs are used over covered decks or porches to provide widespread illumination. Some homeowners choose to install upward-facing fixtures at shoulder height to create unique wall sconces. Like many others, this technique makes stonework stand out.
