Various Reasons for Installing Outdoor Lighting

Installing outdoor lighting is typically done for various reasons that include aesthetic and practical considerations such as:

  • Highlighting shrubs, landscape beds, ponds, or a favorite tree
  • Creating a clear, safe path on walkways and driveways
  • Providing a well-lit entranceway with both functional and stylish fixtures that accent the unique décor of your home
  • Adding value to your home, while also saving money with highly efficient LED bulbs

Spotlighting, Uplighting, & Other Lighting Techniques

Path lighting and uplighting represent two of the types of lighting techniques commonly found in West Des Moines properties.

In order to best illuminate your property, we utilize techniques that include:

  • Spotlighting – This showcases your favorite areas of your home with fixtures that will create eye-catching scenes throughout your property
  • Down Lighting – this creates light in your landscaping that is angled down. When a light is placed above an object, the results seem more like natural light. This is a great option for lighting up outdoor living spaces.
  • Path Lighting – a lit pathway provides a practical safety feature and illuminates your hardscaping at night
  • Uplighting – show off a tree’s natural beauty and shape with lighting that works from the ground up

Proper Outdoor Lighting Deters Trespassers & Helps Prevent Trips & Falls

A well-lit home provides extra safety and security, as proper outdoor lighting can help illuminate pathways. Floodlights and lighting around entryways provide a deterrent against trespassers. Sufficient lighting also helps prevent the hazard of tripping for homeowners, family members, and friends. Keep yourself and your guests safe from otherwise avoidable trips and falls by giving your property adequate lighting.

Modern LED bulbs provide energy efficient lighting, are easy to maintain, and have a much longer lifespan than more traditional lighting options.
