1. How can we implement outdoor landscape lighting that will enhance the beauty of our client’s outdoor spaces?
Outdoor lighting options are plentiful and shine at their best when used to make a design element a focal point. You can use spotlights, flood lights, in-ground lighting, LED lighting, solar lighting, lanterns and more to draw attention to the features you love most in your yard. Here are a few areas where you might want to shine a little more light:
- Outdoor Kitchens.
- Featured Seating or Gathering Areas.
- Fireplaces and Fire Pits.
- Ornamental Plants, Flowers or Trees.
- Pools, Spas and Water Features.
- BBQs and Pizza Ovens.
- Gazebos and Other Decorative Structures.
2. How can the addition of outdoor illumination improve utility and safety when our clients are spending time outdoors?
Your outdoor lighting design can perform a number of functions and make your yard a safer place to walk through. It can also light up areas where predators could hide (whether animal or human) and give your family more peace of mind. Consider shedding a little more lighting on these areas for improving utility and safety:
- Steps and Staircases.

- Drive Ways.
- Garage Doors.
