Installing landscape lighting is a way to enhance your property. It can encourage you to spend more time outside in your beautiful garden at night, hosting parties with friends and neighbors. It also increases your home’s nighttime curb appeal, allows you to traverse your property safely at night, and improves home security. Your property is less likely to get broken into when it is well lit.
Reasons to Add Landscape Lighting
Do you have to step gingerly outside at night as you try to locate and climb down your back stairs in the dark? Driveways, walkways, steps, and entrances are a great place to start adding lighting for increased safety and security.
What about the backyard? Is your deck, spa, or outdoor living space less enjoyable because it’s poorly lit? If you’re finding it hard to relax in the light of a single bulb outside your back door, we’re here to help. Well-placed lighting transforms your outdoor space into an inviting and attractive place to relax. Adding pathway lighting can be both appealing and safer.
We’re Here to Help
Installing lighting takes experience and an eye for design in order to prevent common lighting mistakes. Awkward shadows can shrink your sense of space, while over-lit exteriors feel harsh and uninviting. Placing too many lights in a row can accidentally leave your landscape feeling more like an airport than a home.
The Frontier Landscaping team are experts at installing landscape lighting. We’ll help you find the types and styles of lighting that create the atmosphere you want surrounding your home. Installing the right lighting in the right place in your yard can increase its beauty and functionality. You can artfully highlight landscape features, such as interesting trees, landscape beds, arbors, and patios and add some drama to your garden at night.
Types of Landscape Lighting
Frontier Landscaping installs and maintains many types of outdoor lighting. Most often we recommend energy-efficient low-voltage lighting and LED lighting systems. Great developments have been made in LED lighting over the past few years. The bulbs are now available in many warm hues and intensities and last much longer than incandescent lights. LED lights can last up to 50,000 hours versus incandescent lights which can last from between 2,000 to 5,000 hours.
LED lights are available in a huge variety of fixtures. There are many choices to make between styles of landscape lighting.
