Choosing the most suitable and appropriate outdoor lighting fixtures can make a world of difference. With years of experience, the team at CGreens Landscape Management in Dallas, TX knows a thing or two about backyard and home improvements. Whether you intend to curb the visual appeal, general safety, or functionality of your backyard space, consider the following tips in mapping out available outdoor lighting fixtures in your Dallas area home.
If you plan to install new lighting fixtures around your property, make sure to avoid creating unnecessary blind spots by installing too few lights. Dark patches in the yard are often where people trip or fail to notice hidden animals or objects. It’s always better to err on the side of caution and install a few extra fixtures to ensure full visibility. During your free consultation with your CGreens Dallas landscaping specialist, we will provide our honest assessment of your total lighting needs.
Consider Layering Light
Our professionals may suggest layering light for a more dramatic and pronounced presentation. Combining path-lights, wall-mounted lights, and uplights will create a beautiful emission of light across the whole property. This ensures that no patches are left unlit.
Explore LED Landscape Lighting Options
Choosing the wrong type of light or bulb can leave your yard looking unappealing and artificial. Make sure to choose the most appropriate warm tones of light. Warm LED lights closely resemble the sun’s warm natural light.
Find the Best Fit
After deciding on the appropriate number and desired type of light, it’s important to determine what fixtures best fit where. There is an extensive number of outdoor fixture styles including wall lights, ceiling lights, hanging lights, post lights, pier mount lights, security lights, and landscape lights. Our Dallas landscape lighting specialists will walk you through the full range of options, pairing your preferences and personal style with a lighting plan that fits your budget.
As a general rule of thumb, consider the required space for installation, potential exposure to the natural elements, amount of foot traffic, and required voltage when choosing where to install specific fixtures. Systematically assessing these variables alongside a CGreens Landscape professional can drastically improve the experience and eventual result.
