What Are Landscape Lighting Systems?

If you’ve made a considerable investment in the exterior of your home, you undoubtedly want to show it off. This is why landscape lighting systems are ideal. Not only can they help illuminate your beautiful lawn, landscaping, and home during the dark hours, but they can even offer a measure of security. There’s a lot to consider, however, so we’re going to take a close look at what exactly landscape lighting systems are, why they’re useful, how they get installed in the first place, and what might happen if the installation isn’t done by experienced professionals.

What Are Landscape Lighting Systems & Why Should I Have One?

Landscape lighting systems are decorative lighting system that helps to highlight your lawn, landscaping features, and the architectural aspects of your home. It allows you to bring a different dynamic to the exterior of your property at night while enhancing the aesthetics and providing a more personalized appearance. It can help your home be just as interesting at night, as it can be during the day.

The lighting is used to accent various features of your home. It can be used to light pillars, trees, and more. The lighting can also be used to highlight walkways, entryways, brickwork, exterior living spaces like decks, and more. The primary goal will be to help unite the interior with the exterior, making your home a pleasure to look at, no matter the time of day.

How Are Landscaping Lighting Systems Installed?

If you are thinking about having a landscape lighting system installed, the first step is to reach out to your local experts at IDL Company to speak to a Lighting design professional. They will set up a date and time to meet with you at your home to provide you with a custom landscape lighting design plan.

It will often be approached as an artistic endeavor, making sure to provide the right style for your home. Your lighting designer will help you create a unique and unified approach to lighting the exterior of your home and highlighting various landscaping features. They will talk to you about color temperature and the best types of fixtures to use for a particular space, but ultimately the final decisions will be yours.

Once the project has been well-defined in scope and reach, the lighting expert will provide you with an estimate for the project, which you can then either accept or decline without any obligation. If you accept, they will work with you to determine a scheduling solution that you find convenient and will book the installation for that time.

When the team shows up to install your landscape lighting system, they will come will the necessary items, tools, and equipment. They will be ready to complete your project that day, or within an agreed-upon timeframe. While some small residential installations may only take a day or less, more complex or extensive systems can take multiple days to complete.

Once everything has been installed, it will be time to test and adjust the system to its final parameters. Simply installing lights isn’t enough, you need to make sure they are properly aimed and fully functional. This ensures you are left with a beautiful, functional landscape lighting solution that will highlight your home for a long time to come.

What Can Happen If A Landscape Lighting System Is Installed Incorrectly?

Installing a full landscape lighting system is a very complex task, and while many people would be comfortable hanging a single motion light above the garage or a single spotlight under the flagpole in the yard, it’s best to leave the installation of a landscape lighting system to a professional. Not only are there commercial-grade components that need to be obtained, assembled, installed, and configured, but they will all need to be hard-wired into the home’s power system.

Having someone other than a professional lighting expert install a landscape lighting system can lead to significant problems down the road. This can be as simple as installing lighting fixtures that cannot accept replacement bulbs, to wiring something incorrectly and causing a fire. Using an experienced, licensed, and insured lighting professional is the best way to make sure your installation goes off without a hitch, and that you can enjoy beautiful, safe lighting going forward.
