Landscape Lighting Design Ideas
Strong landscape lighting design always begins with considering how you intend to use your space. If you are interested in our residential outdoor lighting services, ask yourself if you are planning on doing a lot of entertaining in your back yard. If you are, you will most likely need good lighting on pathways, patios and decks on the property. Or do you simply want to see your home all lit up when you come home? If you are a commercial client, then you might be more interested in installing lights that serve the dual purposes of making the building beautiful and increasing its security.
To stoke the fires of your creativity, here are some design ideas to consider.
Choosing one or two elements you want to highlight with lighting can influence the overall design of your lighting system. For example, if you have a tree or a fountain in your landscape, you may want to call extra attention to them, making them the focal points of your design.
Sense of Depth
Depth refers to the distance the viewer’s gaze travels as they view the scene. When you adorn your walkways and flower beds with proper lighting, the viewer’s gaze is encouraged to travel down the walkways, along the flower bed until they have taken it all in. This makes people feel like they are an active participant in your landscape and can do wonders for setting an unforgettable ambiance.
Cohesion and Balance
Ultimately, your lighting design must make visual sense to residents, guests and anyone who comes across the property. Areas of light and shadows need to feel synchronized and deliberate. If plants and structures are lit out of proportion, there will be no sense of intentionality, that the placement was haphazard, diminishing the curb appeal. Cohesion and balance take practice to master, which is why we are here to help.
