Landscape lighting is an important, but often overlooked, detail. It can enhance your landscape and highlight key elements such as specimen plants, water features, or architectural details. Landscape lighting, sometimes referred to as “night lighting", can increase the beauty of a landscape by making it visible. “Night lighting" can help to highlight specific elements like focusing on a beautiful planter of profuse color, or up-lighting the pillars of a pergola or a waterfall. Lighting helps to create shadows, which may not be visible during the daylight hours.
Safety in the landscape is an important issue. The strategic placement of lighting along walkways and steps is a simple and attractive solution to create a safer environment. When properly designed and installed, lighting can maximize the nighttime potential of your particular site.
