Landscape Lighting

Landscaping projects typically require careful planning and consideration to best enhance a home's exterior beauty. A homeowner will also like to enhance their new landscape project with professionally designed lighting to add a special finishing touch. You will find that landscape lighting will bring out the best of your landscape project and provide security as well.

There are five main types of landscape lighting:

  • Spotlight - narrow beam fixture used to highlight specific areas such as masonry walls or garden features.

  • Backlight - a fixture is mounted behind an object to provide a defining enhancement to shape and size.

  • Down Light - lighting is mounted above an item to provide distinctive shadowing.

  • Up Light - lighting is installed at grade level, shining up, to create depth and dimension.

  • Ground Light - ground mounted fixtures to illuminate pathways and garden features.

Besides the lighting method mentioned above, one must also consider the type of light. Today, we find there is solar powered lights and the traditional electric powered landscape lighting options. Solar lighting is powered by the sun and is fairly easy to install. Solar lights include a solar panel for power and there is no need for electric wiring.

Traditional electric powered landscape lights are more reliable and they will typically provide more light output and versatility. Low voltage lighting permits easier installation than a 120 volt type of light fixture. Many fixture styles are available to meet just about any design needs to best enhance your landscape project. Energy efficient LED lighting is making great strides in many home lighting projects as well.

Accent & General Lighting

Lighting is such a great way to enhance a home or business space and also create a comfortable environment for all to enjoy! Much like opening a window on a beautiful spring day to allow fresh air inside, lighting can brighten and refresh a work or living environment in a very dramatic way.

General LightingGeneral Lighting helps to illuminate your living or work space to help you better perform the normal day to day activities for each person's lifestyle.

Recessed lighting allows additional light in a space without the feeling of cluttering up the ceiling. Recessed lighting has a "low profile" that works great in kitchens, hallways, family rooms, and many other room locations. Recessed lighting can operate at full brightness, great for entertaining guests, or dimmed, to create a romantic evening setting.

Sconce lighting is another form of general and accent lighting that not only provides added illumination, but also allows a decorative enhancement to your living and work space. Sconce lighting offers varieties of shape, color, and size to best meet almost any lighting needs one might have.

Accent Lighting is another type of fixture to create much needed light for a particular space. Although accent lighting may be categorized as general lighting, it differs by the way it brings out the best, or accents, wall mounted features, sculptures, or work areas in your home. Under-cabinet lighting, sconce lighting, recessed lighting can all "accent" a space or items that you wish to bring to someone's attention... beautifully and effectively. Here are a few examples of different styles of lighting:
