As our gardens are well into their sabbatical during these long winter months, it can be a sad state of affairs. A sunny day in winter is cause for celebration, but we must be quick to enjoy it. It’s getting dark around 4pm, and is still dark at 7am – however we don’t have to live on that schedule. Make plans to light up the night!
While it’s certainly the season to enjoy the holiday lighting (what a perfect antidote to the dark winter night!), it’s also the time that your low voltage landscape lighting becomes the star of the show. Good landscape lighting is as much about function as beauty – playing an important role in the overall design of your landscape and offering safety and security. Low voltage lighting is usually designed to be utilitarian, it’s not always about getting the brightest lights or the biggest lighting fixtures. The goal here is to subtly accentuate the best features in your outdoor spaces, such as washing soft light on the façade of your home or garden structures and up-lighting ornamental trees in your landscape. In many cases, simple lighting is much more effective than extravagant light displays. Plus, you get the best of both worlds, as your landscape and architectural lighting can double as security lighting for your property, ensuring that you stay safe from wandering intruders. Our designers will work with you to get maximum results from minimal lighting, protecting your family and celebrating your home at the same time.
