Beautiful lighting can make or break your landscaping at night. If you think about it, everything we see is an interaction of light, whether it comes from the sun, moon, or artificial lighting. If there are no lights, we don't see anything.
You can use these facts to your advantage, allowing your lighting to highlight certain areas and bring to attention main features of your landscape design.
There are several things to look for when setting up lighting. Most homeowners go with low voltage lighting, as it's easier to set up, cheaper, and saves on the electric bill. If you wanted to highlight a particular feature of your backyard or front yard, it's better to do it with several smaller lights, instead of one strong light, as that would produce harsher shadows.

Solar lighting is also an option, where the solar panels will absorb the sunlight during the day and cast the stored energy as light at night. Be sure not to have your solar lighting in a secluded, shadowy area, or you might have to install a solar panel at a separate location to collect the appropriate amount of sunlight during the day.
This is also the cheapest option, as traditional type of lighting usually requires an electrician, as they have to bury the wires at least a 18 inches into the soil to avoid the water. If you think solar lighting is right for you, or you simply love talking about solar power, give us a call at 657-201-5786.
