What is the Effect of Downlighting in Collierville, TN?

While your home’s outdoor living spaces may become unusable after dark, whether due to being so far from any visible walkway, or complete lack of illumination, we have the perfect solution. While nearly everyone is familiar with low-voltage outdoor lighting, not as many are familiar with “moonlighting”. Moonlighting is, simply put, downlighting, as opposed the much more common uplighting services we perform. Moonlighting is as exactly like it sounds. We’ll place fixtures in trees to cast very subtle illumination onto your outdoor living space. It’s called moonlighting, as it mimics the soft and subtle illumination that’s provided by a full moon. It’s never overpowering and always creates the perfect atmosphere for your outdoor patio, pergola, or gazebo.


As you can see in the image above, the downlighting fixture is creating a very gentle and soothing amount of illumination through the leaves and onto the homeowner’s future patio location. We were working directly with their patio builder to ensure that we were able to safely and securely run wiring before the ground was completely covered in concrete and other nearly impenetrable surfaces. This is just one of the reasons we’re your premier outdoor lighting company in Collierville, TN, and surrounding areas. We take great pride in our ability to bring your outdoor lighting dreams to reality.

Once these homeowner’s patio is completed, we’ll return to their home after dark to make any necessary adjustments. This includes dialing up or dialing down the illumination levels, as well as to ensure the spread of the lighting is adequate and does, in fact, create enough illumination for the area while still creating a relaxing and soothing environment after dark. It’s just one of the many hallmarks of a true professional outdoor lighting company.

In the image above, you’ll notice that we did implement a lot of uplighting; however, there are a few areas that are being illuminated from above (downlighting). This cascading, symmetrical application of different types of lighting was so effective, we’ve been called back out to add more lighting fixtures. That’s how you know the lighting was correctly designed – when the homeowners realize just how impactful low-voltage outdoor lighting is for their outdoor living spaces.

Also, did we mention that low-voltage outdoor lighting doesn’t cost an arm and a leg? Our most common price point for the design and installation of an average outdoor lighting system is in the range of $1,200 - $1,800. It truly depends on how many lighting fixtures your home will require to adequately illuminate all the key focal points. Once we’ve established the baseline for your home’s outdoor living area lighting, you can always add more fixtures later on.
