When Stone, Earth & Water considers a landscape design project, we also focus on outdoor lighting. In our opinion this is an extremely important aspect of any landscape project, and one that many people tend to overlook. However, the only way your garden or yard can look stunning after dark, is if it has the right type of outdoor lighting.
Some of our customers have also approached us for landscape lighting upgrades and we handle those as well. We are a company that provides design-build landscaping solutions to our customers, but we also handle standalone projects.
Why Is Outdoor Lighting Important?
We have noticed that many properties aren’t illuminated well. Not only does this impact the overall ambience of the landscape, but it also makes these outdoor spaces unsafe. You can’t let your kids and pets play in the yard or garden after dark if it is poorly lit. It’s also important to keep in mind that when your property has the right type of lighting; it acts as a deterrent for trespassers, burglars and other unsavory elements.
Good outdoor lighting is never a matter of chance. It takes planning and creativity to use specific lighting fixtures at strategic points to create a desired effect. Garden lighting is much more than installing a few floodlights around the property. If the correct light fixtures are used in these spaces, it can help highlight the features you like on your property. Interestingly, lighting can also be used to hide features or elements you want hidden.
Types of Landscape Lights
When we handle any residential outdoor lighting projects, we also focus on making these installations energy-efficient and low maintenance. It’s why we use LED bulbs and solar lighting wherever possible. The different types of lights we install are:
