As the days grow shorter, outdoor lighting that adds not only beauty but a safe path to your door is essential. This is true whether we’re talking about your home or business. The goal of outdoor lighting is for welcoming, safety. And, when the seasons turn warm again, your outdoor lighting can greatly extend the use of your patios, decks and pool areas for family use and entertaining.
If you’ve been researching outdoor lighting you’ve probably come across terms like up-lighting, down-lighting, silhouetting, highlighting, and wall-washing, to name a few. Not all outdoor lighting fixtures are created equal. Some are quite bright, others don’t give enough output, and many are not built to last for years in our harsh weather. Outdoor lighting is complex and more worthy of consideration than simply going to your local hardware or lumber store and sticking in a few solar lights alongside your drive. Understanding the differences in lights and lighting techniques, and knowing how to use each one to your property’s best advantage is one of the best reasons to hire a landscaping company like Augustine Nursery.
