How to Choose Focal Features for Minneapolis Landscape Lighting Illumination

CHOOSING WHAT TO ILLUMINATE IN YOUR MINNEAPOLIS LANDSCAPE LIGHTING DESIGN IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST TASKS FOR OUR OUTDOOR LIGHTING DESIGN TEAM

Each home and landscape present unique opportunities for creating a gorgeous custom lighting design. Sometimes the homeowner has a favorite tree, shrubs or statuary they are adamant about illuminating, but other times homeowners feel they don’t have a specific landscape feature worth highlighting. That’s where Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Minneapolis comes in to work our design magic.

Tree Lighting

One of our favorite techniques for adding focal points around a landscape is by choosing the most unique, the most decorative or the tallest tree(s) on a property for highlighting. Trees are majestic and stunning in their own right. Whether you have 50 trees on your property or 5, we can choose the right trees to apply focal lighting, creating points of light for your enjoyment. The best part about tree lighting is that deciduous trees change so much throughout the year, making landscape lighting a great way to enjoy the transformation of the seasons.

Focus on Flowers

Flowers, blooming trees and flowering shrubs make for perfect focal features in your landscape lighting design. Our copper and brass fixtures will blend right into the greenery allowing your purple, pink, white or yellow blooms steal the show. During the bright light of a sunny day your flowers might wash out a bit, but with focal lighting from Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Minneapolis your pinks and purples will be more vibrant, your yellows and oranges will be richer and your reds will be bolder.

Create Your Own Focal Feature

Our landscape lights are designed to be concealed within your landscape for a focus on the illuminated. However, we do have one exception. Our attraction lights are gorgeous daytime sculptures that act as artistic landscape lighting at night. They create designer shadows across your walkway and landscape, becoming a focal feature themselves. They are perfect for creating an anchor in the midst of a large flower bed.  A perfect alternative to a fountain, garden gnome or landscape flag.

If you’re ready to illuminate your gorgeous Minneapolis or Lake Minnetonka landscape for nighttime enjoyment, call today. Our nighttime demonstration is complimentary and is sure to impress. (763) 317-0827
