One of my favorite things to do as a kid during the holiday season was to walk through the neighborhood, looking at the variety of holiday lights that were recently hung. It made me happy to see the lights twinkle during the night, it felt warm and welcoming and still does today. Landscape lighting of any kind provides a sense of warmth and welcoming cheer to any passerby’s or to the homeowners who decided to take advantage of such a thing.
In many ways, landscape lighting can provide that sense of wonder year round regardless of whether we are talking about directional lights, path lights, solar powered lights, underwater lights for fountains and ponds, flood lights for safety or stair lights. The options available on the market today are so extensive that you can basically have anything that you dream up—allowing you to be as creative as you want, just like it were the holidays, even in June.
Aside from bringing a sense of wonder and cheer, landscape lighting can come in a variety of different colors, textures and materials including aged brass, copper, antique, bronze and more. This means that you can choose any kind of material and color you’d like and have it focus on any area of the house you’d desire such as walkways or swimming pools.
Take the image below, for example. These wondrous outdoor lighting options can transition even the simplest outdoor swimming pool into Hollywood Hills. Imagine having a pool party with this lighting. You’d be the talk of the town! Lighting can provide illusions of grandeur.
What about landscape lighting during the winter months and during the holiday season? Well, that obviously speaks for itself. You can have glamorous white lights like those below…
Or you can simply use focus lighting on certain elements of your yard to boost its appearance even after the first snowfall. These lights can add a sense of elegance to any outdoor living space once installed and they will truly make your home stand out from the rest. The image below is probably my favorite way to utilize landscape lighting during winter. There’s something about that fresh white snowfall and bright white lights that mesh incredibly well together.
Regardless of whether you’re thinking about adding landscape lighting to your outdoor living space to boost its appearance, make it easier to see or for added security (with motion and flood lights) there are a wide variety of options on the market today and delivered by the top manufacturers. While there are hundreds of brands on the market it is highly recommended that you utilize only the most popular brands like Focus Lighting, Halo, Intermatic and Malibu Lighting.
