Types of Outdoor Lighting

Many types of lights can be used to enhance your landscape. What you install depends on the goals you have in mind. Here are some examples of the types of fixtures we recommend for outdoor lighting:

  • Floodlights emphasize fountains, sculptures, and trees on your property.
  • Wall wash lights help unique architectural features stand out.
  • Spotlights illuminate porches, driveways, and house numbers.
  • Downlights bathe your patio in a mood-setting glow.
  • Garden lights illuminate pathways, flowerbeds, and sitting areas.
  • Deck lights create a relaxing atmosphere on decks and patios.
  • Step lights make it easier to navigate your property after dark.

In addition to choosing the types of fixtures you want, you must also decide between solar and wired landscape lighting. These options differ in their setups, short- and long-term costs, maintenance requirements, features, and aesthetics. If you’re not sure which option is best for you, the electricians at Genz-Ryan can help you decide.

Benefits of Outdoor Lighting

Installing outdoor lights on your property serves to benefit you in many ways:

  • Improve curb appeal at night: The right landscape lighting can make your home look absolutely stunning when the sun goes down. Impress your neighbors, guests, and passersby with professionally installed lighting in the front yard.
  • Increase home security: Motion-activated security lighting can frighten away any intruders who dare to approach your home. Even simply bathing the exterior walls in light is often enough to deter would-be burglars and vandals because they don’t have a dark corner to hide in.
  • Enhance personal safety: Strategically placed step lights and other landscape lighting can eliminate your fears of tripping over a hose or losing your balance on the stairs while taking out the trash at night.
  • Enjoy more outdoor fun: Who says the party has to end when the sun goes down? Outdoor lighting ensures the excitement can extend well into the night. Then, sensors and timers save energy by turning off the lights automatically during the day.
  • Boost resale value and interest from homebuyers: Because of all these benefits, you can expect outdoor lighting to help your home stand out from the crowd when you put it up for sale. You may even be able to increase the asking price as a result.
