Add Beauty, Intrigue and Enjoyment to Your Home and Yard
You have undoubtedly had the experience of driving down suburban streets on dark nights and seeing in the distance, dramatically standing out against the dark sky, the glowing image of a home beautifully lit by outdoor lighting. As you get closer, you see the highlighted architectural features gracefully showcased by precise accent lighting, or sparkling foliage in the yard – glowing trees, bushes, plantings, water features, or softly lit pathways. As much as you might appreciate how gorgeous these lighted homes look, to really understand the appeal of custom outdoor lighting, you should talk to homeowners who have it at their homes. They will tell you that the lighting provides a magical experience they enjoy every night and also early in the morning before the sun comes up. Custom outdoor lighting highlights a home’s special features, adding curb appeal, intrigue and enjoyment for the homeowner, visitors and those who drive by. The lighting becomes part of the unique signature of the home; it changes with seasonal foliage and evolves as the plantings grow over the years. Here are some ideas to inspire you to take advantage of the benefits of custom outdoor lighting at your own home.
Architectural lighting emphasizes the unique built features of your home and yard. Targeted lighting can accentuate entryway arches, door frames, and columns. Lighting can call attention to statues, sculptures, outdoor gazebos, water fountains, all normally enjoyed in daylight but that become truly magical when highlighted at night.
GARDEN, LANDSCAPE & PATHWAY LIGHTING
Have you ever enjoyed your garden in the evening? With landscape lighting you can. Flowers have a different glow, pathways feel majestic. Up-lit trees and bushes look like glowing sculpture, and with seasonal changes and movement in the wind they become living pieces of art. Shrubs, flower beds and paths can be softly illuminated at ground level. Or “moonlighting” – lights high up in trees aiming down onto walkways, patios or yards provide dramatic effects and improve safety and security for visitors and family.
DECK AND PATIO LIGHTING
Entertaining at night is more festive with landscape lighting, and having your deck or patio well lit allows the party to last longer and makes the evening more memorable. Steps are safer and guests are more at ease.
The sounds of a waterfall, pond, or stream are relaxing and refreshing. Now imagine lights dancing off the reflections, or the glow coming from a pond. And your swimming pool, with improved lighting in and surrounding it becomes your own private Blue Lagoon.
