As the seasons change and summer goes into fall, the sun begins to set earlier and earlier by the day. That’s when you’ll start seeing the awesome beauty of your neighbor’s landscape and garden lights. They now come in more sizes, shapes, colors, and decorative casings than ever before. Plus, due to advances in LED technology, it’s now possible to install them in dozens of ways you never thought possible. Here are some tips on getting started with your own high tech landscape lighting solutions.
Start With A Vision
One of the first things that most people do is get in their cars and cruise through some of the nice neighborhoods around where they live. That way they can get some great ideas on what others have done with their own yards. Then, you can go onto the internet, sites like Pinterest, and view literally thousands of other people’s photos of landscape and garden lighting. There are ideas galore and you can pick and choose the types of lights and accents that you think would look good on your own home and yard.
Once you have an idea of what you want, contact Lightscapes. We will meet with you to discuss your ideas. You can section your project into several different living spaces, the walkway and front of your home, then your back patio, and then your extended landscaping that turns your nighttime yard into a lit up paradise. Then we will work with you to create the best plan for your yard and your landscaping.
Don’t forget to include in your plan to place them along a sidewalk, fence, shine them on your home or accent flowers and shrubs in your yard. There is no better time than the fall to install them since the days are getting shorter and nights longer as we go into the winter months.
