Nothing cranks up your curb appeal quite like a simple dose of landscape lighting. An accent here, a lighted pathway there and wow… transformation!
But is all landscape lighting created equal? Can’t I just plunk in some solar lights and be satisfied?
There are several common mistakes we come across when evaluating outdoor lighting for our clients. Here are a few:
- Too many lights — to create the ideal effect, you need the right number of lights. Too few and it’s darkness, too many, and it’s too fussy and busy.
- Too strong — creating tasteful accents and path lighting requires the right intensity of light in the right areas.
- Lights aren’t on — improper installation will cause your lights to fail prematurely. Timers can be tricky to set up correctly. Solar lights only last for so long.
Like many things in life, if you want genuinely satisfying results, it helps to call in a professional. A properly planned and installed professional lighting system will create a dramatic effect and many years of trouble-free enjoyment.
