Accent Lighting

Accent lighting is utilized to create a dramatic effect that makes homes and landscapes come alive at night. Outdoor landscape accent lighting focuses light and attention on an object from the ground or a tree mounted fixture location. The object can be a shrub, tree, wall, or architectural feature like a gazebo, arbor, statue, or water feature. Accent lighting is available in a wide range of light spreads including uplights, flood lights, well lights, and mini and micro fixtures. The type of accent light is dictated by the mature size of the plant or the size of the hardscape area to be illuminated.

Path Lighting

Path Lighting enhances your outdoor environment’s beauty and safety. We offer a wide array of path and spread lights. Each light is designed to fit into the landscape architecture and shed soft and balanced light where it is needed without troublesome glare or hotspots. A standard path on an 18” stem will give 6’ of light around the fixture. Path Lights are used along sidewalks, stairs, and anywhere you may want to differentiate your landscaping from the home.

Line Voltage Lighting

Mercury Vapor (Moon Lighting)

This technique is used by placing 120V fixtures at higher points in trees. The lights give off a very soft glow equivalent to that of a full moon. Mercury vapor area lighting can also be done with up-lights. These up-lights give a great contrast to the low voltage accent lighting.

There are many other landscape lighting techniques used to highlight the home as well as the landscaping. This is why it is imperative to work with a designer who is creative and well-versed in the ways of illumination. For this reason, all of our designers have 10+ years in the lighting business.
