Fall Nights Need Lights

 String Lights

String Lights

As our Phoenix temperatures drop, we want to spend time enjoying the evenings outdoors. Landscape lighting installation options become something a homeowner may consider. Not simply because the days are shorter, but also because finally being able to spend time in a cooler setting brings updating our outdoor lighting to the forefront of our minds.

On this topic, we offer some lighting options, old and new, for you to consider as potential additions to your landscaping:

String lighting

One of the hottest new looks in lighting is comprised of strands of Thomas Edison-replica globe lights, such as those which cross 83rd Avenue over Peoria’s ‘P83’, the ‘pedestrian-friendly regional destination’ that is the home of the Peoria baseball field, and featured at several local restaurants. 

The festive decor is one that can be copied in the backyard with a few strands of globe lights over the patio overhang, or string lights hung from trees.

Spotlight or accent lighting

Judiciously placed lighting can showcase the most attractive features of a landscape. Who doesn’t love lights which show off the beautiful architectural features of a home, or a single beam which makes the arms of a paloverde tree stark against the backdrop of a wall?  

Pathway lighting

There is something so satisfying about an illuminated path. “This way,” it seems to say. The fact that we won’t trip because we’ll be able to see is a big plus, too. 

LED strip or rope lighting

Lighting strips or rope used to highlight steps, bricks, or paths is a relative newcomer to the scene, but we don’t think this one is going to be dying out soon. LED lighting is trendy for its high-quality lighting and economical operation.

Well lights or in-ground lighting

These are partially or wholly buried, for a clean landscape look which readily offers low-level light along walls and building edgeways.

Low voltage landscape lights

Low voltage landscape lighting can either shine downward or be used at ground level, for example, against a wall or other feature that needs illumination without a prison-yard-like glare.
