Why do you want landscape lighting?
When we engage with a potential client, we delve straight into the heart of the matter. The first question we ask when we start talking about your project is, “Why is it that you want landscape lighting?” With few exceptions, the answers tend to fall into a few categories.
Outdoor lighting looks amazing! You’ve seen what amazing effects landscape lighting can have on others’ properties and want to bring that to your home.
You have a dark property or neighborhood and want to make it safer for yourself, your family and your guests.
You may have read or heard from local authorities that outdoor lighting helps deter crime. No one likes unwanted guests, least of all those of the criminal variety.
Let’s take a closer look at some of these reasons. Are any of yours on this list?
One of the major concerns is an improved level of security. You may be surprised to find that when surveyed by ADT, 95% of (reformed) burglars said they avoided homes with well-lit exteriors. There are several ways to accomplish this without blinding nearby neighbors in the process. Well-placed down lighting in trees and/or low-level lighting around the perimeter of your home is often enough to convince a thief to look for an easier target for his next mark.
Added Value & Curb Appeal
You may also want to enhance the curb appeal of your home or business, and highlight the beautiful features of your landscape design. Professional outdoor lighting can add as much as 20% to the perceived value of a property, according to several real estate sources. In addition to adding perceived value, a lighting design can highlight beautiful architecture, rich material elements of your home, or even new additions.
Highlighted Landscaping & Trees
You already know that good landscaping requires a considerable investment of time and money. You should be able to enjoy it, even after the sun has set. More than merely making them visible, we can bring a unique ambiance, romance and drama to landscapes with outdoor lighting, using various levels of landscape lighting to create a particular effect.
Enhanced Architectural Features
Whether the façade is stone, brick, or stucco, the exterior of your home makes a statement. While the sun is up and you are at work, it is the focal point of your property, but at night when you get home it all disappears. Lighting on columns and over the garage does little to enhance your home’s architecture, but the addition of professional outdoor lighting can make a huge difference in illuminating your home’s exterior.
Changes in elevation, uneven surfaces and bodies of water, while interesting during the day, become hazards in the dark. While you may know your way around your property in the dark, there’s a good chance that your guests won’t. Landscape lighting for pathways and steps enhances safety. We can also craft a leading effect with outdoor lighting will ensure that no one goes astray. This can be especially important if you have a lake or pool as a feature of your property.
Extended Use of Your Outdoor Living Spaces
Regardless of the size or budget of your vision or project, Lux Lighting will work with you to provide the best solution to meet your needs.
You want to be able to enjoy your space day or night, whether entertaining guests or relaxing with family, and appreciate the beauty you’ve worked hard to create. Even when the sun sets at six during the winter, you can still spend time in your outdoor space given adequate lighting. What type of ambiance we create is entirely up to you – romantic, warm and inviting, majestic, or the subtle thrill of a garden under the full moon.
Draw Attention to Focal Points
You may want to draw attention to specific focal points on your property. As we mentioned above, illuminating features of architecture and landscape can create an entirely different impression of your property after dark.
We View Landscape Lighting as an Artform because it is our Passion
Because landscape lighting is our passion, we view it as an art form. Building a lighting concept involves using varying types of light sources, with specific angles and the level of brightness. There are no two designs that employ the same pattern, brightness or number of lights, so what we build for you will truly be unique. Your property will be enhanced with a specific number of low, medium, and high-level light sources, which we’ll use to create a foundation, a functional level, and a high-value accent level of lighting.
By implementing our landscape lighting service, you’ll not simply add perceived value in the eyes of the casual observer or the cherished guest. You will experience that value every time you return home. It renders the natural emotion of returning to a private residence into a sense that you’ve come to a place of luxury and splendor–something we feel everyone should have.
