During these winter months landscaping might be the furthest thing from your mind. But, it’s the perfect time to be planning your next outdoor project, Naperville! A great example of a project that will highlight your landscape all year-round is landscape lighting for your property. Well-placed lighting adds beauty and drama, increases safety for your family and guests and showcases your neighborhood. It is versatile, welcoming, and will last for many years.
Year Round Enjoyment
Consider how low-voltage pathway lights will guide your family and guests to your door and back to their cars during the winter. Outside garage lights will provide a clear view as you approach in inclement weather. Accent lights will highlight holiday decorations and other architectural features. Guide visitors to look upwards to see a special feature such as a specimen tree or a rooftop window.
For the summer, highlight outdoor features such as fountains or urns. Lighted patio areas will welcome guests all evening long to enjoy the warm weather. Task lighting will focus on grill areas, making them safe and extending their use.
Choose the Right Outdoor Lighting for your Home
A wide variety of lighting choices ensures that you can achieve the effect you desire. Low-voltage lighting is popular as it is energy efficient and environmentally sound. It is ideal for pathways and to add subtle pools of light around the home. Solar lights are also widely available, but have limitations. Because they require lots of sunlight to regenerate and are less powerful, their use should be limited to areas where lighting is not a safety issue. Flood lights are great for large areas, and pinpoint lights can focus on specific objects. Because the choices are varied, you’ll want to take some time to plan the best scheme for your home.
