Path landscape lighting

Illuminate walkways evenly and clearly, while avoiding glare.  We place lights along a path or in dark areas leading up to your home, garage, or patio.

Garden lighting

Garden lighting can illuminate ground cover, shrubbery or flowerbeds or to feature an interesting area of your garden.

Accent landscape lighting

Accent landscape Lighting focuses illumination to highlight trees, shrubbery, or the texture of exterior walls. Accent step lights also add safety to stairways, paths, and patios.

Landscape spotlighting

Landscape spotlighting turns an interesting object such as a statue, tree, or entryway into the focal point of the outside of your home. It can give a tree or statue a more striking appearance.  This effect is achieved by lighting the object from two or more directions with multiple accent lights and “crossing” the light paths.

Landscape Lighting Features & Benefits

Entertainment

Landscape lighting can help transform your lawn into the ideal space for summer nights. Illuminate your garden, pathways, and other landscape features, as well as children’s play areas and outdoor kitchens or barbecues.

Security

Lighting your home is an effective way to deter residential crime and keep out unwanted intruders. Although lighting cannot prevent crime, statistics show that a well lit home is much more likely to deter potential criminals.

Safety

Avoid any accidents with a well-lit yard or garden. Landscape lighting accents pathways, stairs or any other potentially hazardous areas within your yard, helping you to navigate safely around your property, while enjoying its beauty at the same time.

Low Voltage (12V):

Typically, we utilize low voltage for residential landscape lighting installation, as it provides the following: 

  • Very little risk of electrical shock, even underwater.
  • Wide selection of energy-efficient fixtures to choose from.
  • Low voltage wire can be directly buried in a shallow trench (minimum depth: 6"), generally without using conduit.

 

Common Mistakes With Landscape Lighting Installation

There are some common mistakes with landscape lighting installation, which is why it makes sense to enlist the help of a professional. Two common mistakes are installing lights in the wrong place, and using poor quality fixtures. 

Your landscape lighting should be installed with your landscape and lawn maintenance in mind. Lawn maintenance will prove difficult when landscape lighting fixtures are installed throughout your grass. Fertilizer, lawn mowers, and weed whackers can all damage the fixtures. Pairing our landscape lighting installation with our lawn care and maintenance services will ensure that your entire landscape works together as a system.

Poor quality fixtures offer little resistance when exposed to the elements, resulting in leaks, burnt-out bulbs, or other failures. Our lighting installation service utilizes moisture-sealed fixtures that will provide long-lasting light in outdoor elements. Always install pro-quality fixtures to ensure a professional quality result.
