Prior to the installation of landscape lighting in this homeowner’s backyard, it was dismally dark after nighttime arrived. The chief concern was their inability to fully see where they were stepping when making their way to their pool area and pergola. In order to rectify this, we combined pathway lighting and a few uplights to bring the path to life, as well as the surrounding foliage. Now, the homeowners can see precisely where they’re walking and there’s essentially no space for someone to hide after dark. It’s a perfect example of combining aesthetic lighting with practical lighting to add beauty and safety to the property at night.
Imagine the walkway above without any lighting. What’s the first thought that comes to mind? If you’re thinking you wouldn’t want to walk through that area come nightfall, you’re not alone. It’s human instinct to avoid dark and uninviting spaces. We were able to change that completely with just a few very carefully placed pathway lighting fixtures. In addition to the pathway lighting, we were called back to the property to install downlighting, commonly referred to as “moonlighting”. We crafted a unique downlighting design that cast a subtle wash of illumination onto the area from the surrounding trees – hence the name “moonlighting."
In the image above, you’ll notice the patio isn’t overly illuminated. That is a very key component to ensuring your lighting is aesthetically pleasing after dark. We aim to create a relaxing atmosphere in your home’s outdoor living spaces without the illumination becoming overpowering. Now these homeowners can relax on their patio at night with complete visibility and nearly all dark spots have been removed from their property after nighttime’s arrival!
