Have you ever noticed how it seems there’s always one house on a block or in a neighborhood that somehow manages to stand out from the rest at night? Doesn’t that particular property present a certain aura that seems to be missing from all the rest in the area? In many cases, it’s because of the homeowner’s choice of outdoor lighting. At Shearer Patio & Landscape Services, we can help you select the right outdoor lighting to provide the ambiance you seek while making your home the one that everyone tries to emulate. We are expert installers of walkway lighting, driveway lighting and pathway lighting, and we also possess the design expertise to assist you when selecting the outdoor and landscape lighting that is right for your unique property.
Types of Outdoor Lighting
There are a number of different types of outdoor lighting you can use around your home, each of which has its own unique benefits. Floodlights cast a powerful beam that is excellent for backlighting purposes, while globe lights provide efficient lighting without an abundance of glare. You can also choose outdoor lighting to highlight trees, patios, shrubs and swimming pools. The use of timers allows for additional energy efficiency by operating only when you need the lighting the most or at predetermined intervals.
Walkway and Pathway Lighting
The right pathway or walkway lighting not only provides for safe nighttime navigation around your property and an added sense of security, it also creates a tremendous opportunity to enhance its nocturnal appearance. For larger properties which may contain a walking path, pathway lighting also adds a romantic touch if you enjoy late-night strolls around your property with that special someone. It also provides a safe environment for nighttime pet-walking duties. Shearer Patio & Landscape Services can help you attain just the right amount of light along your stone walkways and brick paver walkways and pathways.
Low-Voltage Walkway Lighting
Our low-voltage lighting selections also help you keep your property illuminated without putting a strain on your energy budget. Low-voltage lighting offers maximum flexibility for relocating the lighting if necessary, and its use of smaller bulbs allows for smaller and less obtrusive lighting fixtures. You can also select from a variety of beam spreads to attain the exact lighting effect you’re trying to achieve, whether you want a focused beam of light or want to cover a more far-reaching area.
Driveway Lighting Ideas
Your driveway lighting can do so much more than help you park your car safely at night. It can also help you illuminate your yard and enhance particular lawn or landscaping features and add a bit of “curb appeal.” A lamppost at the end of your driveway can help visitors locate your home safely at night, and the addition of a motion sensor can let you know if you have unexpected guests. If you have a long driveway, short posts places at intervals can serve as a guide while preventing damage to your property caused by drivers not seeing your driveway’s twists and turns. Lighting near your garage area also adds safety benefits.
