Landscape Lighting in Highland Heights, Ohio
What better way to say “I’ll leave the light on for you” than landscape lighting at your Highland Heights, OH, home? Whether you’ve lived in Highland Heights for years or you’re a relative newcomer, the community’s friendliness and charm does help people feel welcome. Take that a step further with the welcoming glow of landscape lighting on your property.
Professional landscape lighting can gently wash the landscaping of your yard with an understated glow, or it can shine a proud light (not too bright!) to focus on a special tree, water feature, or plant grouping that you want to highlight. The best landscape lighting in Highland Heights, OH, will also say “Welcome” and “Watch your step!”
At Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Northern Ohio, we see that every yard is unique, so we custom design a landscape lighting plan just for your property. To do that, we’ll meet with you at your home and walk around the property with you. We’ll ask questions about what you hope to achieve with landscape lighting so we can be sure to accomplish that for you. The design consultation is free. If you’ve never had landscape lighting before, you might not know quite what to expect, but through the design consultation you’ll learn the scope of what it can accomplish.
Some Highland Heights homeowners focus on lighting for safety, and others want their new lighting to show off the beauty of their yard and all the work they’ve put into it. The good news is you don’t have to choose between safety and beauty. Professional landscape lighting will accomplish both of those goals. That’s why it’s important to hire a professional firm to design and install your lighting.
In terms of your family’s safety, we’ll look at lighting your driveway, walkways and steps. We set the light fixtures in and around landscape features such as hedges along paths, trees or shrubs along the driveway and bushes flanking your front steps.
To enhance the beauty of your yard at night, we can use several different lighting techniques for different effects, again depending on your priorities. There’s nothing quite like the moonlighting effect we achieve by placing a soft light shining down through a tree, casting a pattern of light and shadow through the leaves. You don’t have to wait a month for the moon to cycle back through. It will come back to that same tree every night.
We recommend adding lights in the back yard as well as the front, especially if you have outdoor living spaces like a patio, deck, pergola, fire feature or water feature. Landscape lighting can enhance your enjoyment of those outdoor spaces, so you’ll get more use out of them than you would without lighting.
We use high-quality outdoor fixtures with LED bulbs, and you’ll be happy to know that LED lighting uses about 80% less energy than the halogen lights everyone used previously. Our copper and brass fixtures stand up to our Northern Ohio weather and acquire a beautiful patina over time.
