A lot of things go into designing a garden, and you wouldn’t want all that to be concealed by the dark once evening falls. With good landscape lighting, you can highlight the beauty of your yard and your home’s architectural features. Moreover, lighting pathways will make it safer for you to walk around the exterior areas of your home.
WiHome Integration can help you set up a custom home automation system that’ll let you control all the lights from one keypad or remote. WE can also guide you through the different types of landscape lighting to find the best match for your home.
Typically used to create a moonlit effect, these fixtures are installed high on trunks and branches. They are made with a long, cowl-shaped shroud around the bulb to eliminate side glare, and they can also be used to light lawns and paths. To avoid frequent repairs or replacement, you should consider durable copper and brass housings with LEDs for your downlight.
This type of landscape lighting is versatile and compact. It is fitted with bulbs that cast a narrow beam, which is great for lighting tree trunks, garden structures and house features.
A wash light produces a soft, diffused light. It’s often recommended for illuminating garden walls, privacy fences and flat facades.
Flood casts a wider beam than a bullet at about 40 degrees or more. It is also usually brighter than a wash light, and its collar is known to minimize side glare. This type of fixture is used sparingly to light tall trees or wide house facades. Make sure to consult with your smart home installation company to determine the best position for your flood light.
In this type of landscape lighting, the bulb is placed inside a waterproof housing that’s embedded on the ground. It is often used to light the underside of plant foliage or the base of a wall or facade.
