Lighting is a very important, aesthetic component of the landscape that is very often overlooked. Up-lighting, to accent the architecture of a home, or the the natural beauty of a specific accent plant or tree with great branch structure can be a year round interest during the nighttime hours of your property. The function of low voltage lighting around sidewalks, patios, and common areas can be very useful for softly lighting the areas during twilight hours. This can be very helpful for safety concerns around waterways, steep drop-offs, or stairways. Using the lighting to direct accessible paths can be very inviting vs. spotlights or overhead structures for lighting.
