Incorporate Different Lighting Techniques
Light is an incredibly unique medium with which to work, and there are various methods that professionals can use to illuminate all kinds of properties effectively. When planning the layout for your new outdoor lighting system, you should keep a few basic lighting techniques in mind. Downlighting and uplighting are, as their names suggest, methods of illuminating areas or focal points from either below or above. These vantage points can be utilized for both ambient lighting, which covers large areas, or spotlighting, which focuses on specific features. All of these techniques can be combined to enhance the beauty and safety of your property once night falls.
Consider Layout Challenges
One of the most challenging facets of outdoor lighting design is knowing how to use light. Because it can act as both a particle and a wave, light can be tricky to predict for those who do not have experience with it. When planning your new project, consider any challenges you may face with your layout. Trees and shrubs that are compact and dormant in winter can obstruct your light come spring, and the locations you choose for your fixtures must have suitable power outlets readily accessible.
