Landscape lighting design is very similar to the design of the landscape itself: we must determine focal points, use areas, traffic patterns, outdoor “rooms,” style, mood, etc.
Planning a Landscape Lighting Layout
Before deciding what and how to light, we must first ask “why light?” Our design decisions are dependent on proposed uses for landscape lighting…for safety, security, property value, or enhancement of the beauty of the garden and structures.
Many different techniques will create a variety of effects for your home and property. The overall effect is dependent on what you want the end result to be. Whether it is an imposing dramatic effect or a subtle and elegant look, your lighting professional will create the atmosphere you desire.
