Residential Lighting Design
We are specialists when it comes to designing lighting for your landscape. First, you need to plan on how you intend to use the space. Maybe the kids want to play sports in the yard after dark; maybe you entertain guests and need to have illuminated walkways; or maybe you just want a nice view when you get home from work each evening. Also when designing your outdoor lighting, you should keep a few things in mind. First, since you spend most of your time indoors, you want to have nice focal points that can be seen from inside. Next, you need to have one or two focal points. Pick trees or structures that you want to highlight in your landscape. Additionally, you should plan on what structures to light.
Lighting pathways is important for both beauty and safety. We spend a lot of time with family and friends on our patios so you should consider lighting these areas, perhaps with moonlighting to keep from blinding people. Trees are perfect for up-lighting and crosslighting to add a shadow effect to surrounding structures. Architectural elements and hardscapes are ideal for spotlighting to highlight specific features. Lastly, you may consider lighting your driveway, which just needs a little light since you will use your headlights to see. There are many things to keep in mind when designing lighting and we can assist you in the process.
