Landscape lighting provides far more than simply illuminating your walkway. Adding lighting to your yard or patio has a significant impact on the safety and value of your home. By installing lighting on your property, you’re adding ambiance, curb appeal, and creating a space that you can enjoy after a long day.
Consider installing yard lighting for:
- Lighting a pathway or staircase
- Highlighting decor and landscaping
- Increasing property value
- Maximizing safety for family
- Deterring crime
Adding lights to your yard extends the comfort and convenience of your home to the outdoors. Family and friends can feel relaxed when enjoying your patio, garden, or pool area.
Choosing the Right Landscape Lighting
The perfect landscape lighting for your home is different depending on your goals and priorities. With the extreme Arizona heat, durability is an important factor, but you may want to consider other important features depending on your project. Are you concerned about safety or aesthetics? Does the energy efficiency matter? Will the lights be focusing on a specific object? Each of these questions can help guide you in the right direction as you plan your lighting project.
Types of Outdoor Lights:
- Path lights
- Wall wash lights
- Well lights
- Deck lights
- Step lights
- Hardscape lights
- Color changing lights
Each of these unique lighting options offers different benefits. Spotlights and floodlights are very similar, but floodlights have a broader spread that makes them ideal for deterring crime. Pathlights and step lights both face downward to illuminate the walkway, but they come in a couple of different styles: in-ground and posts. The light hue and placement of the lights also play a significant role in the mood and aesthetic you’re trying to create. Lighting can be as simple as a few well lights highlighting mature trees or cactus, to a full on light show with color coordination and WiFi controllability.
