Landscape lighting is a great way to add beauty, safety, and security to your outdoor space. Properly installed outdoor lighting can also create an inviting atmosphere, while providing illumination for outdoor activities. Landscape lighting can help to define areas in your outdoor space, highlight architectural features, and bring attention to trees, shrubs, and other landscaping features. It can also help to improve visibility and safety when walking or driving around your property. And, let's not forget landscape lighting brings beauty to your outdoor space.

Types of Landscape Lighting
The primary purpose of landscape lighting is to enhance the aesthetic appeal of outdoor spaces, to improve the safety and security of the area, and to extend outdoor living space. That being said, there is a lot of wriggle room when it comes to choosing your outdoor lighting and ensuring proper placement. For example, many people want to highlight architectural details of their home, or they have a water feature they want to highlight. When choosing the best landscape lighting, it's important to consider your needs and the space you want to create that will bring you peace and satisfaction. Below are some of our landscape lighting options. Stop by to speak to a certified lighting specialist for details today.
The Importance of Landscape Lighting
As mentioned above, landscape lighting serves many purposes. However, one of the most important reasons to invest in the right landscape lighting is because it improves the value of your home. Potential homebuyers love turn-key solutions, and if they see your home with beautiful landscaping and curb appeal, they will be more likely to purchase yours over a different home with minimal landscaping. Our expert lighting designers can help ensure you have exactly what you are looking for, and we can offer helpful suggestions when you are stumped.

Landscape Lighting Trends
Landscape lighting trends have been shifting towards more natural-looking lighting, such as LED and solar lights, as well as more subtle, softer lighting that can be used to highlight certain features in the landscape. Motion sensor lighting is also becoming more popular, as it is both energy-efficient and more secure. Additionally, people have been experimenting with different shapes and materials for their outdoor lighting fixtures, such as copper, wood, and glass, for a more unique and personalized look. Pathway lighting is a great example of trends because you can now find pathway lighting in every finish and in cool, unique designs that really sets the tone of your outdoor space. Learn more today.
Landscape Lighting Zones
Think about your backyard as having several zones that all serve unique purposes. The area around your back door will most often be used to cook and serve food, while the areas farther out can serve a number of purposes. By deciding what you want each section of your yard to feel like, you will be able to work on making landscaping and lighting choices that work for those zones.
Here are a few ideas of how to separate your yard by zone:
- Entryway/food prep/serving area
- Dining area
- Garden/quiet sitting area
- Firepit area
- Pool area
Each of those zones has unique lighting needs that you’ll want to take care of when you are designing the perfect backyard.
