Making The Most Of Fall – Landscape Lighting
The leaves are in full color mode this year as autumn hits its main stride. Foliage and other outdoor decorations are the mainstay for Halloween and holidays like Thanksgiving. But that color and other decorations can get lost at night or when the visibility is low during the typically gray part of the year. For this reason, having some well placed home landscape lighting can not only brighten up the season, but also make a great looking addition to your home’s outdoor decor that can be used in all 4 seasons.
Nothing says come trick or treat at our house like a well lit walkway or driveway to the front door of your home. Poorly lit or difficult paths can not only be dangerous, but also create the opposite sense of invitation, something that is no good for Halloween but also no good during the holidays for guests arriving at dusk or total darkness. Inexpensive and well placed light fixtures can change this in one fell swoop, so be sure to get an idea of the best options to suit your outdoor space.
Here we’ll consider why targeting certain areas of your outdoor landscape with spotlighting is a great way to bring the most out of your landscape design. Whether aiming at a jack-o-lantern, a nicely colored tree, a scarecrow, or moving forwards, a turkey design, or even wreath for Christmas; spotlights bring the focus to an area of your home that you want noticed. No longer will visitors happen upon a great looking addition, but actually will have their focus directed towards something you want them to see. This also is great for the spring and summer as well.
3. Retaining Wall Lighting
A retaining wall is often times a great way to add a functional element to your property that also looks great. Nowadays, however, its no longer a simple matter of choosing the stones or design that you like. The most modern of retaining walls utilize spotlighting, embedded lights, and angular placement to accentuate the design and make it a better fit in your property than traditional walls. This isn’t something that can simply be slapped up. Working with a professional masonry contractor that specializes in this sort of project is a must. When it comes to wiring, placement, equipment and even insurance, you’ll want to plan this one with the right type of contractor. So be sure to do a bit of research prior to getting started in our local area.
Fall is here and the leaves are turning lighter and brighter. With beautiful oranges, yellows, and reds marbling our area and becoming the envy of the 4 season world, be sure your home landscaping is up to the task of keeping pace with the beauty. Halloween is just a few short days away so get out there, get the candy ready, the jack-o-lanterns lit, your costumes picked, and have a great time this year.
