Many perennials, such as the Angel’s Trumpet shown here, bloom in the evening.

The addition of outdoor lighting will enable you to enjoy the ever-changing colors and shapes of your garden and landscape season after season, night after night. From the delicate first buds of your cherished rose garden, to the rose hips left behind when the blooms have ended. Strolling through the evening landscape will enable you to view your plantings and blooms in a unique way for many flowers are at their peak beauty at night. Perennials such as the Angel’s Trumpet (Brugmansia), Casablanca Lily and Evening Primrose are night-blooming and reach their fever pitch in the evening. There is much to see within the night landscape and lighting will ensure you never miss a moment of the splendor!

Here is a list of just a few of the endless benefits of landscape and garden lighting:

  •  Landscape and garden lighting adds value to your home and property while providing the finishing touch to your landscape design. Soft washes of  romantic light will greatly boost the WOW factor of your home, gardens and landscape during all seasons.
  • Adding outdoor lighting will give you the chance to show off your creativity and any unique features present in your garden(s) and landscape.
  • Adding accent lighting throughout the landscape, such as path and sidewalk lighting will make your yard safer for evening enjoyment, while creating ambiance.
  • Adding landscape and garden lighting creates loads of curb appeal!
  • Adding specialized landscape and garden lighting, such as tree lighting or statuary lighting will add depth and mystery to your evening landscape.
  • Adding low-voltage LED  landscape and garden lighting will save money in operational costs over traditional outdoor lighting. Low-voltage lighting consumes about 1/3 the electricity compared to traditional systems and is more environmentally sustainable from a “green” perspective.
