Your landscaping is the first thing people see when they come to your home
or business. A dark and poorly lit property is not only unappealing, but
it is also dangerous. Criminal activity is a serious risk when there is
inadequate lighting, and your guests are also at risk for tripping and
falling. By installing
landscape lighting products, you can enjoy a stunning end result and increase the safety
and value of your property.
The Most Common Types of Landscape Lighting Include:
- Flood Lights
Flood lights produce a wide beam, generally 40 degrees or more, and are
very bright. The side glare is minimized with a collar. These lights are
often used to illuminate tall trees, wide house facades, and other architecture.
They are also commonly used as security lights.
- Path Lights
Path lights are some of the most common landscape lighting products available.
They are used to provide illumination to pathways and walkways around
a property. These lights are small posts with a light installed that is
capped with a diffuser. They provide soft lighting to help guests see
around walkways and steps.
- Step and Deck Lights
Step and deck lights are often used to accentuate architectural details.
They provide added safety for guests by illuminating steps and walkways
around a property. They can be installed directly into hardscaping or
decking. These lights can also be used to provide lighting for entertainment
spaces, and can illuminate dark stairs, steps, stone walls, and decks.
- Well Lights
Well lights are often used to illuminate trees, art, walls, and the underside
of plant foliage or the base of a façade. They are installed in
a waterproof housing that is recessed into the ground. Because they are
buried, they create a seamless lighting solution for landscaping and hardscaping.
The fixture is hidden, and they can be installed with fixed or swiveling bulbs.
- Wash Lights
Wash lights provide soft illumination that is ideal for garden walls, privacy
fences, and flat home facades. They use a diffused light, and are easy
to install. With their soft illumination, they provide a beautiful aesthetic
touch to any property.
