How Low-Voltage, Subtle Lighting Can Add a Whole New Dimension to a Yard

Posted by San Diego Landscaper on Thursday, 30 July , 2015

Plant life is something that adds a certain look of class to almost every yard, but there is a point of no return where it all can become too much. People don’t want their yards to look like jungles, so after a while it’s time to simply let the plants that are in place flourish and do what they’re supposed to do. That’s usually the best approach, but it doesn’t necessarily work for people who want to continually improve the outdoor portions of their homes. For them, there are other options.

One of those options is outdoor lighting. Many people shy away from this idea because they fear that it’s expensive and complicated, but below you’ll find an overview of examples of how low-voltage, subtle lighting can add a whole new dimension to your yard. Anyone who is interested in adding this component to the look of their property should take some time to contact experienced San Diego landscape professionals to find out more about how this is done.

By Giving Your Plants More Time to Shine

Beautiful plant life should be enjoyed as much as possible. People work hard choosing, planting, growing and maintaining plants no matter where they live. Homeowners shouldn’t have to say goodnight to their plants when the sun goes down. If some low-voltage lighting is added to a yard, those beautiful plants will be on display for as long as you want them to – day or night.

By Adding the Illusion of Size

When night falls, people tend to view the world only as far as they can see it. That means that all of the work that went into a landscaped yard is wasted because no one can see it and appreciate the full size of your space. When someone adds low-voltage lights to a yard, the entire space remains visible regardless of whether it’s sunny, cloudy or pitch dark.

By Adding a Sense of Warmth and Comfort

When a yard is illuminated with subtle lighting that’s strategically placed around a yard, it will provide an entirely different feel for someone who is spending any time in that space. Light creates a sensation of warmth, especially if it’s soft enough that it doesn’t overwhelm anyone who may happen to be enjoying that area at the time. There are few things more comfortable than standing among lighted plants at night and watching them move with the breeze.

As stated above, many people hesitate to move towards obtaining outdoor lighting for their yards because they fear that it will be a major expense. That is not necessarily the case, particularly if someone chooses a low-voltage option. If you are ready to add this special dimension to your yard, all you need to do is contact the San Diego landscaping professionals at Juniper Landscape Company today to schedule an initial consultation and so you can find out what can be done with your home.

    I have a side strip of yard which is on the street. The original landscaping was VERY high maintenance and not attractive. I was always out there cleaning up the leaf litter or be fined by the HOA. I hired Juniper Landscape Company. They came out and actually listened to what I wanted. They... Read More

    Juniper Landscape Company has been fantastic. Before them, we ran through three or four other lawn and landscape maintenance companies who did spotty and sometimes outright poor work, were not always reliable and who ended up creating problems for us in a variety of ways. That experience led us to subscribe to Angie's List... Read More
