Types of Landscape Lighting

At Mr. Electric, we offer professional residential and commercial landscape lighting services in Atlanta, Sandy Springs, Suwanee, Buckhead, Brookhaven, Roswell, Decatur, Alpharetta and other nearby metro area communities. We understand how difficult it can be for homeowners to make decisions about their landscape lighting upgrades. There are so many different kind of lights available, that making a final investment choice can be overwhelming. Here are a few tips on how you can incorporate different lighting styles into your home’s lawn and garden. 

Deck and Patio Lights

If outdoor entertainment is your main reason for a lighting upgrade, then you may want to focus your efforts on illuminating your deck and patio. A large variety of options exist, from Umbrella lights at your patio table to string and rope lights that set the mood on your party deck. You may also want more permanent options, such as an outdoor chandelier or light and fan combo for sophisticated style. 

Security Lights

Many people prefer to install outdoor lighting for security purpose rather than aesthetics. Many thieves prefer to target homes that are bathed in darkness at night time, making it easy for them to break through the door or windows unnoticed by neighbors or nearby drivers. Having a brightly lit property may discourage criminals from choosing your house. Flood lights and motion sensors can help provide the extra defense you’re looking for. 

Pathway Lighting

Walking through your yard at nighttime can be dangerous. It’s easy to trip over unseen items that might be in the way on your trip to the backyard workshop, spa, swimming pool, garden or gazebo. In such cases, a lit pathway can help make your walkway much more safe while adding beauty and charm to your overall landscaping. 

Lamps

Outdoor lamps provide an even greater decorative statement. Whether you’re choosing a sleek and crisp modern style lamp on your pool deck, or prefer an old world style post in your flower garden, these large lighting pieces are sure to create an impact. 

Spotlights

Spotlights provide an excellent opportunity to showcase specific areas of your lawn that you enjoy. Well lights can be buried beneath the ground to highlight your favorite garden fixture or rose bush from beneath, without distracting anyone it’s hardware. Lights can be mounted to tree trunks or the home itself and pointed downwards onto areas of your yard that are used more often at night. Bullet and Wash lights help homeowners customize their lighting options by pointing a beam directly at an object you want to stand out, like a garden statue or water feature.
