Exterior lighting is just as important as interior lighting. Outdoor lighting has a big impact on the look of your garden and patio and has a functional and safety aspect too. There are many options when choosing outdoor lighting so having your Landscape Contractor available to walk you through this process is important.
If you want to enhance your existing space at night, consider adding built in lighting to your patio, deck or water feature. Outdoor lighting has come a long way and now includes 12 Volt LED lighting which is cost effective and more eco friendly. Lighting comes in many different styles, colors and themes so be sure to consult with your Landscape Contractor.
If you are looking to purchase outdoor lighting on your own, look for lighting fixtures that are made of durable die cast and aluminum tubing, brass, and copper fixtures. They tend to stand up to the elements. It is also important to be aware of your electrical source before installation, make sure there is an exterior grounded outlet. If you don’t have one of these available, please consult with an electrician to have one installed. It’s a good idea to have your local electrician install an outlet with a GFCI (Grounded Fault Circuit Interrupter).
For a great selection of quality lighting, we recommend Kitchler, a Canadian made lighting company.
