What Goes into Landscape & Architectural Lighting?
Landscape & architectural lighting allows you to enjoy your outdoor space even after sunset. While some lighting techniques possess a highly functional purpose, many other lighting designs are used to enhance the unique characteristics of a residential property giving your home an enjoyable feel and warm ambiance. The same goes for a commercial property creating a warm welcome and in certain cases, a safe feeling at night with the appropriate lighting in place.
Figuring out the purpose of your landscape & architectural lighting design is step one. What do you want or need to accomplish?
Many homeowners and business owners want pathways, patios, trees, and even water features lit up. However, there is no copy and paste blueprint when it comes to designing your landscape & architectural lighting because no two properties are the same. You can use downlighting to achieve a gentle ambiance perfect for hosting guests or you can use up lighting to create a bolder, more dramatic moment. If you have a prominent tree on your property, cross lighting is a beautiful way to make it a focal point in the dark. A significant benefit of working with a professional lighting company is they hold a great understanding of these various lighting techniques.

If you host a party for the big game or a holiday party, this will be a must have to incorporate your team or the seasonal colors through the lighting in your outdoor area.
Smart Permanent Lighting
An innovation within home and commercial/business lighting, Perma Lites are color changing LEDs. These permanent, year-round lighting strips are designed to be nearly invisible during the day. This type of light requires minimal electricity and comes with a 10-year warranty. Because Perma Lites only use 60watts of energy per 200 feet of light, they are one of the safer outdoor lighting products to use on your home especially if used as your primary Christmas and holiday lighting. Controlling these lights is simply done through the Décor Smart app, a platform readily available for your smartphone, tablet, or desktop.
Lighting angle, intensity, and color are all variables that will completely affect the overall appearance of your property. Higher Ground Lawn Care & Lighting is trained by Nite Time Décor to find the right design for your property. We will create a breathtaking outdoor atmosphere for you!
