If you have a home that needs landscape lighting to enhance the beauty of your compound and make it safer at midnight, you are probably looking for great ideas. As a professional lighting company, we usually start with a rough sketch of the compound in order to have a design to meet your lighting needs.
Our Outdoor Lighting Company regularly helps homeowners with landscape design. Here are some tips you’ll want to know about DIY lighting scheme that’s beautiful and practical.
#1. Spot Lights
Structural plants and others that grow upward would be great to have uplights on to emphasize the silhouette of the foliage. Practice to only choose plants that will thrive all four seasons: ferny plants and green sturdy plants that could survive cold and hot temperatures. Downlighting gives your landscape a more soothing ambiance because it illuminates a wider area. Also, use Lamp posts to light areas such as benches, bushes, and fountains.
#2. Low Voltage Landscape Lights
You can make your landscape lighting design sweet by using low voltage outdoor lights. They can be installed using 12V that you can easily install on your own with relative ease. While you can do some of these installations on your own, we recommend you seek professionals when you have challenges or call us. Remember, any project that has to do with electricity has to be handled with care.
Learn to hire professionals for major installations and only do it yourself for maintenance. Saving a few bucks by doing things yourself is great but, not at the expense of an accident or putting your neighbors at risk of fire, electricity, etc.
