Many times when people are beginning to look into landscaping, they focus on the trees, plants, and flowers and forget that there are a lot of other aspects that can make your outdoor spaces enjoyable. A fire pit or an outdoor kitchen, a patio area, or even a driveway installed with stone pavers can give your property an upgrade for less than the cost of a remodel. One important addition to your property is that of outdoor lighting. Many people think of a light pole or porch light as outdoor lighting, but outdoor lighting can mean many things. Whether it is incorporated into your landscaping as an accent, used for security purposes, or to prevent tripping hazards at night, outdoor lighting can be a wonderful addition to your property.
Outdoor Accent Lighting Additions
Accent lighting is often thought of as something that you can only do inside, but that’s not the case! When you add landscaping features to your property, you may wish to highlight them with a spotlight or an accent light. Think about a water feature accented with lights to make it truly beautiful on a summer night. Consider your business sign accented with lighting to make sure guests can see where they are going at night. Accent lighting has many purposes–from directing your attention to making sure guests know where they’re at. Outdoor accent lighting can be a beautiful addition to enhance the aesthetic of your landscaping.
Enjoy Outdoor Gatherings Safely
When you have guests over, you want to make sure that they have a good time. That not only means making great food and supplying drinks and games, but making sure that they are safe while they are on your property. Nothing ruins a fun party like someone falling down or getting hurt during the night. If you have walkways, steps, or sidewalks, proper yard lighting and deck lighting is a must! These can be as visible or invisible as you desire. We can install track lighting spaced out along a sidewalk or pathway that leads you to a destination in a whimsical manner, or we can incorporate yard lighting into your landscaping that still helps guests (and you!) see where you’re going when it starts to get darker earlier. Our lighting systems can use low wattage lights or solar lights to keep your pathways lit without draining you budget. Solar lights work especially well as they charge during the day and glow brightly at night for your safety.
Keep Your Home Secure
Outdoor lighting isn’t all about decoration, it can also be very useful for making sure that your property is safe when you aren’t there to watch it. While many people think of flood lights as the only security option, we can work your outdoor lighting into unobtrusive areas and the surrounding landscape to make sure that you’re safe and sound without looking harsh. We can work with wired in security lights and motion sensor lights that turn on when someone approaches. Many people use these on garage doors or in walkways to back doors. Keep you and your family safe with outdoor lighting options at Outdoor Innovations.
