Improved Safety and Security

Landscape lighting enhances safety and security by illuminating pathways, stairs, and potential hazards, reducing the risk of trips and falls. Well-lit outdoor areas also deter trespassers and intruders by eliminating dark hiding spots and increasing visibility around your property, providing you with added peace of mind.

Increased Property Value

Professionally installed landscape lighting not only enhances the aesthetics and functionality of your outdoor space but also adds value to your property. Well-designed and properly maintained landscape lighting is considered a desirable feature among homebuyers and can significantly increase the resale value of your home.

With strategically placed landscape lighting, you can extend the usability of your outdoor space well into the evening hours. Whether you're hosting outdoor gatherings, enjoying a quiet evening on the patio, or simply taking a stroll through your garden, landscape lights create a warm and inviting atmosphere that allows you to fully appreciate your outdoor environment after dark.

Highlighting Key Features

Landscape lights can be used to highlight specific features of your property, such as trees, shrubs, architectural elements, and water features. By strategically directing light onto these focal points, you can create dramatic visual effects and draw attention to the unique characteristics of your landscape, enhancing its overall beauty and charm.

Energy Efficiency

With advancements in LED technology, modern landscape lighting systems are highly energy-efficient, consuming significantly less power than traditional incandescent or halogen bulbs. LED lights also have a longer lifespan and produce less heat, reducing maintenance and operating costs over time.

Landscape Lighting Installation Process 

The installation process for landscape lighting begins with a thorough consultation and design phase, where we collaborate closely with our clients to understand their vision and goals for their outdoor space. Working hand-in-hand with our design team, lighting fixtures and designated accents are carefully selected to bring that vision to life. Once the design is finalized and approved, our skilled installation technicians take over, completing trenching and laying low-voltage direct burial wires throughout the landscape. These wires are then brought to designated locations and back to where multi-zone wifi transformers are installed to power the system. Fixtures are strategically placed according to the design plan, ensuring optimal illumination and aesthetic appeal. Our technicians conduct thorough inspections of all installed fixtures and junctions, ensuring durability and resilience against outdoor elements. Before completion, our team returns for an evening light setup and walkthrough with clients, providing comprehensive education on operation and maintenance to ensure long-lasting enjoyment of their landscape lighting. Throughout the entire process, our focus remains unwavering on delivering high-quality results that not only enhance the beauty but also the functionality of your landscape.

Lighting Techniques.

Techniques that set us aside from the the rest. We KNOW Landscape Lighting


Placing spotlight-style landscape lights at the base of a feature and angling them towards it creates a striking highlight effect, perfect for accentuating specimen trees, statues, or water features. By adjusting the distance and angle of the lights, you can customize the intensity and direction of the illumination, offering versatility in highlighting different elements within your landscape.


Silhouetting in landscape lighting involves placing lights behind a feature and angling them away towards a solid structure, such as a wall or fence, rather than towards the feature itself. This positioning creates a dramatic effect where the solid surface reflects soft light, casting a striking shadow of the object in front of it.


Shadowing in landscape lighting involves positioning lights towards a specific feature, similar to highlighting, but with softer light that creates a gentle glow around the feature. This technique casts a subtle shadow onto a solid surface behind the feature, adding depth and dimension to the outdoor environment. Shadowing is particularly effective for features with movement, like tall grasses swaying in the breeze,


Washing is a landscape lighting technique commonly used on walls and rows of shrubs to create a soft, ambient glow across surfaces.It's achieved with wide-angled floodlights of low wattage, which spread light evenly across the surface.

Up & Down Lighting

Up-lighting is a striking technique that highlights a particular feature by placing a light directly below it and angling it upwards. Depending on the intensity and placement of the light relative to the feature, up-lighting can create shadowing, silhouetting, or washing effects, adding drama and depth to the landscape. Conversely, down-lighting involves placing a light in an overhead space and angling it down at a feature, often under the eaves of a home. This technique creates a pool of light at the base of the structure it's attached to, offering a subtle and elegant way to accentuate landscaping elements such as statues, specimen trees, or water features.


Moonlighting is a captivating landscape lighting technique designed to replicate the gentle glow of the moon. Achieved by placing light fixtures within a tree's canopy and angling them downward, this method casts soft, dappled shadows through the leaves, creating a serene and enchanting ambiance reminiscent of moonlight filtering through branches. This subtle and naturalistic effect adds depth and allure to outdoor spaces, perfect for enhancing the beauty of gardens, pathways, and seating areas.

Path Lighting

Path lighting is primarily functional, providing illumination along stairs and walkways to ensure safe navigation in outdoor spaces. This technique utilizes down-lighting to cast light onto the paths below. When installing path lights, it's important to consider potential risks to the fixtures, such as being kicked or struck by a mower. Careful placement and selection of durable fixtures can help mitigate these risks while effectively lighting pathways for both safety and aesthetics.

In-Grade Lighting

In-grade lighting is a discreet landscape lighting technique commonly integrated with hardscape features to provide illumination without drawing attention to the fixtures themselves. Typically, well lights are used for in-grade lighting, installed flush with the surface to maintain a seamless appearance. This technique is particularly useful in areas where traditional above-ground fixtures might pose a tripping hazard or detract from the aesthetics of the space. By blending seamlessly into the landscape, in-grade lighting enhances safety and ambiance without disrupting the visual flow of the outdoor environment.

Hardscape Lighting

Highlighting stone features, retaining walls, outdoor kitchens, steps, handrails, benches, and other architectural elements with landscape lighting adds depth and visual interest to outdoor spaces. By strategically placing lights to illuminate these features, you can enhance their texture, color, and architectural details, creating a stunning focal point in your landscape. Additionally, lighting up pathways, walkways, and garden edges not only serves a functional purpose by making walking safer, but it also enhances the overall beauty of your outdoor environment. Soft, ambient lighting along pathways adds a charming and inviting atmosphere, guiding visitors through your garden while showcasing its beauty during the evening hours.
