What To Do With Landscape Lighting To Have The Best Home On The Block
Landscape lighting is the best way to really bump up the curb appeal of your house.

LED Retrofits For Outdoor Light Fixtures
It wouldn’t take much to convert the outdoor light fixtures to LED, especially on homes with the few lights that are built during standard home construction. An electrician like use will replace each fixture with a modern LED light fixture. This hardwire installation is much more efficient than just using LED light bulbs and it will be much more reliable. The LED bulbs will work better and last longer if the fixture is rated for LED bulbs. It is worth getting an LED retrofit estimate to check out the possibility before you install additional light fixtures to enhance the landscape.
Colored Outdoor Lighting
You’ll also have plenty of color options to choose from so you’ll be able to use them in a more flexible manner or in combination with each other. For instance, put along your steps a soft red light but choose a soft white for the deck railings. By doing this, you’ve just created dimension in your design! Choose a soft green or blue for your fountain area and you’ve added some cool effects for the water.
Install Deck Lighting For Safety & Beauty
Enjoy your new deck now at nighttime, as you’ve made it easier for guests to easily find their way around your barbecue area and you’ve set a mood for your outdoor get-together.
Swimming Pool & Walkway Lighting
Walkways, patios, and sidewalks areas are good places to install outdoor lights in order to enhance your backyard landscape for after dark use. Special lighting can be installed around your swimming pool area as well.
And with today’s technological advances in LEDs, you won’t have to worry about leaving the lights on outside overnight because your energy bill won’t skyrocket. There’s no shortage of LED lighting style options there either. In fact, you can get pool lighting that changes color on a timer or by remote control. Talk about a great party atmosphere!
Combining landscape lighting types, you create a design for your property by illuminating it in different ways. Lighting helps in a number of ways, and aesthetic appeal isn’t the only reason to have it installed.
Spot Lights & Uplighting
Outdoor spotlights and uplighting are other types of landscape lighting that go well in combination with low voltage and security lights.
Spotlighting is a stronger type that is used to light up or highlight specific features that should stand out, such as your favorite plantings, statues, or water features.
