Summer is right around the corner which means it’s time to start thinking about ways to update your outdoor space. The days may be longer but the nights are warmer, and you shouldn’t have to cut the party short for lack of lighting. Consider installing elegant outdoor lighting to illuminate your landscape this season. Here’s how.
Determine Your Budget
One of the first steps you should take towards choosing your landscape lighting is to determine how much money you’d like to spend. Depending on the size of your lawn, your budget may determine if you can afford full landscape lighting if not. Luckily, when it comes to outdoor lighting, a little bit goes a long way.
What Can Outdoor Lighting Do For You?
First things first, ask yourself why you want to light up your landscape. Do you want outdoor lighting for security reasons? Do you wish to entertain guests late into the summer evenings? Do you want the lighting to subtly illuminate the space or do you imagine your backyard as the set of a Mumford and Sons music video? The purpose of your outdoor lighting will dictate the style and level of brightness of the illumination.
Decide The General Design Of Your Landscape Lighting
Decide what areas you would like to be illuminated. Do you want the entirety of the landscape to be lit up at night? Or would you prefer to shed light on certain areas? Before you start designing your landscape, imagine what you would like it to look like once the sun sets.
