Outdoor lighting systems are an excellent way to add beauty, curb appeal, and safety to your home or property. We have a few pro-tips to share with you, and also some of our favorite landscaping inspiration pics.
Before you start purchasing items, it’s best to get a few things in order to avoid extra headaches, trips to the store, or worse—incompatible components. We recommend first grabbing a notepad and pencil and doing a walk-through of your property to get a sense of how you envision your system. Draw a picture to take with you – and if you aren't good at drawing, snap a few photos on your phone before heading to the store.
General ideas to keep in mind as you plan: • Decide what exterior areas or objects you want to light. • Select the appropriate lighting techniques. • Choose the fixtures and accessories that give you the desired effect. • Choose the power supply, either line or (more commonly) low voltage. • Select the appropriate bulbs. Don't forget these important tips: • Conceal the landscape lighting source when possible (except when you intend for the fixture to be a decorative element). • Don’t overdo it! A little light goes a long way at night. • Be creative in using a mixture of lighting techniques. • Arrange for an automatic device like a timer to turn lights on and off. • Be considerate of your neighbors. Aim lights so they do not shine into their windows.
