Lighting It Up.

One important, but often overlooked, element of a complete landscape design is lighting.  When you make the decision to illuminate your landscape, you are using light for a variety of reasons.  Landscape lighting has functional and a visually stimulating purpose, with different goals.

Functional lighting is important in terms of landscape use and security.  When adding lighting for security, it's important to do so tastefully and with balance.  It should illuminate quietly, but provide safety and security to the homeowner and to guests navigating through your landscape in the evenings.   

When deciding where to place landscape lighting, consider targeting walkways, pathways, steps, water features, pools, decks, patios and any areas that might be considered a tripping hazard.  Keep the brightness low, but a touch of drama, done correctly, will make your landscape the envy of the block.

Pool lighting.  The right lighting is important in the pool and around the pool.
