You’ve created your dream landscape, so now it’s time to plan your lights! The finishing touch to complete your vision is to make sure you can enjoy it by night, too. With just a flick of a switch or two, you can take your property out of the darkness and create a beautiful display. Proper lighting is clearly important for safety, but don’t underestimate the aesthetic pleasure a well-thought-out and expertly executed lighting plan can bring to your daily life. Using spectacular products from Unique Lighting, Gerbert & Sons will carefully design and install a lighting scheme to highlight your home’s most appealing architectural features and draw attention to your gorgeous landscape, and illuminate your outdoor living spaces so they can be enjoyed at any hour.
Adding few tree-mounted lights will bring an inviting glow to a swing or pergola, while two cross beams of light work to softly illuminate a fountain or arbor, without the harsh shadows caused by using only one light source. Fixtures placed near the base of a stone wall highlight the different stones’ striking textures and colors, while adding a little accent of light to nearby plantings. New types of lightbulbs can be buried in the ground, which lets you benefit from their light without seeing the fixture themselves, drawing attention to your home’s best features by softly washing them in light. Bringing in an exterior pendant light adds style and elegance to your outdoor dining and entertaining areas, creating a intimate and welcoming atmosphere for any gathering. And have no fear- when lighting your property, we’re careful to avoid using too much light, and we make sure any light fixtures are positioned correctly, since we never want to have light shining into an interior room, misdirected lighting that creates uncomfortable glare, or an overpowering amount that dims your view of the stars. Correctly designed lighting using the latest LED technology helps save energy and money, while adding beauty and style to your property.
