Ask the Experts – Tips for Choosing the right Landscape Lighting Professional

You’ve done your best to create an appealing and aesthetically pleasing curb appeal for your home. Your next step may include illuminating your landscape, increasing security, and enhancing the look of your yard or business.

Here are some key things to consider when choosing a landscape lighting professional

  • Understand the purpose. Is security your primary concern or is the goal to illuminate a specific focal point in your yard?
  • Know your budget. You want the best and most affordable option and your lighting professional can help you develop a lighting plan that aligns with your budget. 
  • Expertise. Spend the time to ensure the lighting team is skilled in their approach to the lighting recommended for your property. Choose a professional service that is experienced and creative in the venture to illuminate your home.
  • Read the reviews and ask for referrals. Referrals from real people, satisfied with the work performed is the true test of any professional.
  • Product Knowledge. Question the professional about the new trends in landscape lighting installation, light pollution, and lighting methods to best accentuate water features, plants, and trees.
  • Warranty.  Make sure that the lighting expert you are considering offers a warranty on both their installation and the product they install.

Four reasons to install landscape lighting may include:

  • Security lighting. Installing security lighting may help to detract criminal activity.
  • Curb appeal. Location is important when valuing real estate.  Location is also important in the positioning and placement of landscape lighting.
  • Water features. Whether the focal point is a pool, pond, or fountain, an outdoor lighting expert can design and install lights to enhance the water feature with a warm, soft glow.
  • Pathway lighting. Safety and security are a big priority for enjoying your outdoor living space at night. Pathway lights become a functional way to address that concern.
