Safety Lighting is specifically designed to provide lighting on paths and entrances for the sake of safety in walking, sitting and/or entertaining. Safe lighting can alert you to wildlife and those who are not welcome on your property, and can illuminate an area for better visibility.
Types of Lighting Effect
Spot lights are used here to bring attention to a certain area of interest, such as a particular plant/tree or an element in the landscape design. Accent lighting is also used for Water Features.
This can be accomplished in a number of different ways, whether it is to create illumination for a walkway, plants… can be also used on the eaves of your house to present an effect onto your house.
Illumination of an object in your garden such as a statue that has an uneven surface to create a bright lighted surface with shadows for an awesome effect.
Illuminates a particular focal point in the landscape. Objects to consider highlighting can be garden statuary, fountains, ornamental sculptures, etc.
Moon Lighting Effect
Designed to mimic natural moon lighting, this effect uses specific light placement to romantically down cast light into an area.
There are so many available options in pathway lighting, whether it’s for aesthetics, creativity and function, there really is no limit to your unique style.
This technique silhouettes the focal point in a way that creates a sharp elliptical light pattern behind it. The light is positioned in a way to create a radiant effect around the object of interest.
The effect here is to utilize light to create the appearance of texture and drama via shadows. Up-lighting can emphasize garden features such as fountains, statues or plants by casting their shadows in specific areas.
We use this effect to highlight special trees in the garden, or possibly casting light in an upward fashion to brighten the under-story of a particular tree, etc.
Rather than highlighting specific features of an object, this effect works to better define its form onto a backdrop.
Wall Washing Effect
Used to create a uniform or clean light on a background wall while also giving indirect light to surrounding foliage.
Water Feature Lighting
A variety of effects and techniques can be implemented to add drama or bring attention to specific areas of your pond, waterfalls, or other water features.
