What You Should Consider About Lighting and Landscape DesignWe've talked a lot about various hardscaping and landscaping needs on this blog so far, and with good reason. Everyone wants their home to look great, which means good interior design and a great exterior as well. Whether it's your front yard or your backyard, landscape design experts understand how to make your property look its very best. Sometimes this means making the most of what is currently on your property, or it may mean completely revamping the overall look of the area.

While pavers and outdoor kitchens and grills are all important, we haven't talked about another major facet of landscaping and hardscaping: lighting. Yes, whether it's natural light or it's light from fixtures, the lighting of your property can make a major difference.

How Natural Lighting Affects Landscape and Hardscape Decisions

You might be surprised by how much natural lighting affects decisions regarding your landscaping and hardscaping needs. If the sun hits part of the patio a certain way, you might not want a reflective surface of some kind in that place since it will bounce the sunlight into a nearby window. Similarly, noticing the way the light hits your yard gives you a good idea of where to place overhangs, shades, and so forth.

We'll make sure that your landscape and hardscape needs are customized to the property, which means taking into account the current look of your home and the way natural light affects your property as well.

Existing Light Fixtures and Landscape/Hardscpe Decisions

It's also important to consider the existing light fixtures that may be present in and around your property. Sometimes there are wall lights, post lights, hanging lights, or landscape lights that are quite nice and complement the décor of the house itself. It's crucial, if customers like their existing light fixtures, that we design a yard that is also complementary to the look of the fixtures and/or the quality of light that they produce.

Consider New Light Fixtures for Porches and Patios

Sometimes it's a good idea to change the light fixtures around the exterior of a property. Doing so can enhance the overall look of a home, or even emphasize the great design work that has gone into the yard.

Landscape lighting can cast dynamic shadows on stones and vegetation while also illuminating a path, for instance. Or a post light or hanging light can give the property a nice, warm feel. When revamping a property, the overall look of all design elements is carefully taken into account.  And lighting, is an important piece to the overall design.
