Landscape lighting has many benefits for both business and homeowners. Outdoor lighting enhances your property’s natural and architectural beauty, increases security and safety, and creates a warm and inviting atmosphere for you and your guests. A well planned design can accomplish all of that and more.
But maybe your fixtures are starting to look a little outdated or worn. Maybe you need an update on some fixtures. Where do you start? Things have changed significantly over the past few years when it comes to styles and lighting technology and it may be hard to make sense of all of the information that is out there. Here are a few ideas that may help you to determine how to upgrade and update your existing lighting system. A small change, properly done, can have a significant impact on your landscape lighting system.
Have a look at the style of your existing fixtures. Is it still the look you are seeking? Updating the style of the fixtures can make your lighting system look fresh and current. New fixtures can also upgrade the performance of your existing outdoor lighting.
If you’re updating your outdoor fixtures, maybe it’s time to convert some of them to LED. This can be done by replacing the existing halogen or incandescent bulbs with LED bulbs on some newer fixtures, or by investing in new complete LED fixtures where LED bulbs are not compatible. LED bulbs are typically brighter, have longer life expectancy, and are very energy efficient.
Please be sure to review the owner’s manual and manufacturer recommendations for your fixtures before you replace the existing bulb with a LED bulb. If you are unsure, it may help to have an outdoor lighting expert review your existing fixtures and provide you with advice on what would be required to complete a LED conversion.
It may be that you have done some renovations, adjusted your landscaping, or changed the exterior of your home. This is an excellent opportunity to review your outdoor lighting design and make any adjustments that you would like. Have a look at your current lighting system at night and take note of anything that you feel is not adequate or performing as you’d hoped it would. This is the best place to start.
If you are not sure about how to proceed when it comes to reviewing your current outdoor lighting system and design, hire our professionals for the most current trends and products available within your budget. This is also a great time to expand an existing design. Have some great security and exterior lighting, now it’s time to treat your back yard or that new garden.
