The warm weather is finally here, and with the official start of spring last week, it is time to start dreaming and planning how you want your yard to look and function so you can enjoy the yard all season long. While your imagining the flowering gardens, the beautiful hardscaping, the relaxing outdoor living areas, and whatever else you can dream of to improve your curb appeal, take a moment to picture those spaces at night. Can you still see them? If so, how are they lit? It is easy to forget about outdoor lighting when we’re dreaming of our outdoor spaces, in part because it is usually not the primary focus of a space, but also because many people assume they have to just make do with what they already have. That isn’t the case, but in order to install new outdoor lighting, you should work with a professional. Read on to learn more.
Knowledge and Experience
You want a professional with years of experience, the proper tools, and the contacts necessary to help you achieve your dream vision. Often they can also help you install some of the other fixtures you may be hoping for to go along with that lighting. If they can’t source, design, and install it themselves, the odds are good they have someone they partner with who can. They may also suggest lighting you haven’t thought of yet (like on your steps, or illuminating the waterfall in the pond).
Good Design Sense
Your company should also be able to help you with your overall vision and design as well as with choosing the lights. They can help you choose the right types of lighting for different parts of your yard and different types of fixtures. For instance you may have a flood light illuminating your deck, but have you considered also having fairy lights around the umbrella over the table? Your professionals can be a great source of inspiration.
Electrical Safety and Proven Results
Whenever you’re installing electrical systems, you need to leave the electrical components to someone who is trained and certified to handle them. Professionals can help you choose the best lights to achieve your desired effect and then install them safely and correctly.
