Outdoor lighting is a bright idea that sparkles year-round, and thoughtfully placed outdoor lights bring your garden to life. Forget about blinding spotlights on the garage doors and runway-style footlights along the front walk. EMCO lighting professionals know how to direct the lights to accentuate exterior features that matter and make them memorable.
Outdoor lighting is done wrong so many times, but a landscape that is properly lit is just magical. Clients should consider night lighting
to highlight striking features and create dramatic shadows. Pathways, steps, gazebos, patios, walkways, trees and plants are just a few of the items EMCO LIGHTING
designers can enhance with properly placed lighting.
Outdoor lighting opens up your outdoor living space, and extends the length of time you can enjoy the outdoors. Lights play an invaluable aesthetic role in the overall look of your home and garden, and add to the value of your home as well.
Terrific outdoor lighting should really be part of every good garden design right from the start, Well-lit landscaping adds depth and dimension to the experience of a garden, and creates a warm welcoming area for your family and friends.
Garden designers have strong opinions about lighting because outdoor lights and beautifully designed gardens naturally go hand in hand. Pretty garden features such as a particularly sculptural tree, a fountain or a rugged stone wall can be just as handsome at night as they are during the daytime. You don't want to overdo it, but proper lighting shows them off gently and tastefully.
Of course, outdoor lighting also can make your home and garden safer, but well-designed path lights do more than show visitors the way to the front door. They make the approach more interesting by setting up a play of light and shadows. The fixtures are often hidden, so you find yourself following the path and enjoying the experience, not marching in step with a chorus line of mushroom-shaped lampshades.
