You are finally coming home from a long day at work. You pull into your driveway, turn off your lights and gather your things from your car. It’s fall now, so it’s dark out, and you start to make your way to the front door. You just tripped over something, almost falling to the ground, you try to get a look at the culprit but you can barely make it out. Is it a toy, or is it the morning paper?
There’s a lot to consider when lighting up your yard, maybe you should hire a professional, I mean bringing out your lamp from Target isn’t the answer. A lighting expert can get the whole thing done for you probably more quickly and easily than you can. Your Professional Landscaper will have some good contacts on hand for you, they know exactly what would work best for your yard and how to maximize the lighting to make everything look fantastic. I mean remember the Oprah Winfrey show? Rumor had it that she had the best lighting experts on hand to make sure everyone looked their absolute best on her show, not to mention herself. So why can’t you have the best lighting for your home and yard? You can.
First step is determining what your needs are, are you wanting to light a path to your front door so the trick or treaters don’t end up in a pile on your doorstep? Placing lights around garden beds and near bushes or plants will not only give your yard some much needed light, but it will accentuate your lovely garden you just spent a small fortune building.
What about your backyard, do you like to entertain back there, do you have a pool and need to see when the kids are back there swimming after dinner? Installing lights out back can completely change up your next dinner party or romantic dinner for two. You know you’ve read the latest HGTV magazine and saw a fabulous backyard with twinkling lights hanging on a trellis and thought it would look amazing in your backyard. Lighting up your palm trees is also a great way to show off your warm weather trees and get some light going in the back of your yard since your kids are too scared to get their ball that drifted into the darkness.
Thanks to new technology, lighting your yard is much faster, easier and cheaper than ever before. Experts are using low-voltage systems that are easy to install, they can be done in a day, and use less energy than the older higher voltage systems, many operate with LED lights. You can also easily move the lights when you need to since they only need a 6-inch deep channel. Make sure you hire a professional so you know you are getting the right size transformer and the right ground fault circuit interrupters so your kids don’t get electrocuted when the rainy season starts.
