Custom Landscape Lighting is one of the best ways to increase the value, safety, security and beauty of your home. Unfortunately, landscape lighting is a challenging task — especially for amateurs.
In this article, we’ll tell you about four important reasons that you should hire a landscape lighting design specialist to lightscape your property.
Ensure Easier and Less Costly Maintenance
A good landscape lighting design specialist will make sure your garden lighting is not only beautiful but also practical. That means it will be less costly and easier to maintain.
To do this, landscape lighting designers incorporate as many lower maintenance techniques as possible. LED Light Sources that produce higher brightness per wattage of power consumed for higher performance, will need less maintenance and ideally, less consumption of electricity.
They’ll also protect power cable inside of rigid conduit pipe, set up junction and distribution boxes where necessary. Engineering a system in this manner helps prevent against future wire damage and costly repairs, makes service and repairs easier and makes future system expansion more economical.
Your landscape lighting design specialist will also think about the best places to locate transformers and fixtures around trees and shrubs to maximize effect and efficiency and lower your utility bill.
In the long run, these cost savings will probably pay for the original price of hiring the landscape design specialist.
Take Advantage of Their Project Management Experience
Creating a beautiful garden lighting design is one thing, actually making it a reality with a proper installation is a lot more difficult. And therein lies the value of hiring a landscape lighting design/build specialist.
They’ll produce a creative effective design, they have all the industry contacts for all the different and best products that will be needed, and they’ll be able to effectively schedule and organize the work-flow of the project. These are serious responsibilities and you want to hire a specialist who has years of experience taking care of them over and over again.
Think of hiring a great chef. Sure they might know some delicious recipes, but what’s really important is that they know how to execute them perfectly.
Add Value to Your Property
It’s pretty obvious that adding dazzling garden lighting to your property will boost your property value after dark. Not only financial resale value increases but increase in property utility and usability after the sun has set. Safety and security is a byproduct of a comprehensive outdoor lighting plan. Security cameras operate better with the addition of effective light to the space.
These Value increases will pay for the cost of hiring a landscape lighting design specialist multiple times over.
Ensure Your Garden Is Gorgeous after Dark
Designing great garden lighting is more involved that you may think. On one hand, you need to create a striking work of art positioning the best light sources to accent architectural features, statuary, flowers, trees, and bushes etc. And on the other hand, you need to specify, conceal and arrange that hardware so it is somewhat concealed in the landscape, create the optimum effect and make the system easy to maintain so that system remains operational and effective over a long period of time.
It’s a delicate balance between art and science.
Furthermore, a landscape lighting design specialist will bring a plethora of creative techniques and ways to conceal the light sources to the table that you would never have considered: Down lighting, silhouette lighting, Mirror lighting etc.
