Landscape lighting serves a few purposes, but the two basics are beautifying and function. Where many people implement lighting into their landscape to showcase special plants or create ambiance, having a design for the landscaping can serve you more than just spotlighting a few of your favorite plants. Today, we at Burley Electrical Services would like to share how landscape lighting can enhance the dynamics in your yard while still creating soft and subtle ambient lighting.
Low Voltage Outdoor Lighting Transformer & Other Timers
Landscape lighting is not the simplest task when you are trying to enhance the exterior of your home. Timers are essential, without them, most people forget to turn them off and on, making them a wasted effort. Below are some tips for your lighting landscape design.
Where to Place Landscape Lighting
Fixture placement, light levels, and beam spread are the major factors into making the landscape lighting design glorious. General placements are often done in the morning hours, however, there may be some fine tuning after the sun goes down. There can be a dramatic difference with a just a minor adjustment. Lighting fixtures, manufactured with the highest quality, are good tools. Not only can they enhance your landscaping, but also boost the architecture of your home and properly illuminate your yard to make it easier to travel through but serve as security purposes as well. The light fixtures should feature settings such as lumen levels, beam spread options, and/or dimming capabilities for example. With the right settings reacting to your landscape, you can easily create depth, layers, and moods. With the right balance of illuminating, angles, and other details, the lighting is a science and art that really makes a difference.
Landscape Path Lighting
The fastest growing industry to date is homeowners investing in outdoor living spaces such as water features, ponds, outdoor kitchens and dining areas, wet bars, hardscape patios with fire pits and fire features, recreational areas, wooden decks, pergolas, trellises, and so much more. Unfortunately, when indulging in this practical new trend, too many homeowners are neglecting the outdoor lighting. You want your newest addition to be well-lit and appreciated after daylight hours. A part of the landscape lighting design entails the outdoor living space, pathways, features in the yard, and so on.
Landscape Lighting Controller Zone
Where automatic timers are very useful, having options at your disposal can give you the control you want in the landscaping, whether you need to see better, or want to create a more intimate mood. Producing usable outdoor living and recreational space is established with developing separate zones for certain tasks or moods. Giving homeowners the ability to turn lights on or off, maybe to dim them as needed such as around the home and pool area, while the rest of the landscape remains permanently lit on a timer can be beneficial.
