A great way to compliment any landscape design is to have some great outdoor lighting installed. Outdoor lighting can come in a massive amount of different things, with some of the most popular options being solar powered lights. Solar powered lights are great, because they can store the energy from the sun, and then use it to power themselves during the night. This reduces electricity costs and is incredibly convenient. However, we also work with powered lighting, to give light in spaces that may not always be able to be sunlight accessible.
Solar Walkway Lights
Walkway lights are an amazing addition to any landscape design because they are, not only, beautiful, but they also provide a sense of safety. Walkway lights can come in 2 varieties, with one being activated as night falls, and the other being activated by motion. In today’s world, most walkway lights are solar powered. Because these lights are not needed during the day, they can store solar energy, convert it, and then use it to power themselves at night. These types of lights can help to reduce energy costs, while still giving reliable lighting on all of your walking paths.
Solar Tree Lights
Another great solar powered lighting component to put in your landscape design, is that of tree lighting. Tree lights, like walkway lights, provide two benefits at the same time. The first benefit is that they instantly beautify your landscape even more. Using lights, such as paper lanterns, will looks gorgeous during the day, and even better when they are lit up, at night. The second benefit is that tree lighting can provide lighting to hard to reach portions of your yard. If you have something like a seating area, or table, in your landscape, we can conveniently place tree lights above these, so they give off light to the people below.
Deck, or patio, lighting is essential, as these are spaces that you will lost to enjoy with you friends and family, during the day or the night. Deck lighting is usually powered, because decks are often attached to the home. This means that deck lighting can be easily wired; either by an extension cord which finds its way to an electrical outlet, or by being hard wired directly in to your home’s electrical system. Deck lights can come in all different styles, from smaller, decorative lights, to large lights that are meant to completely illuminate your space.
Motion Activated Lights
Motion activated lights are, almost always, hard wired in to the electrical system of your home. The reason for this, is that motion activated lighting is usually used as a sort of home defense system. If no one is walking around these lights, they should stay off. However, if someone does walk by them, the light will automatically turn on. This is a great way to tell if you have unwanted company on your property. And, because we always want these lights to work for that reason, we want to make sure they have a completely reliable electrical component.
