To put it simply, outdoor lighting — when installed and utilized correctly — is one of the most effective enhancements out there for your property.

The proper exterior lighting system can turn even the dullest of patios into a vibrant hot spot that you and your family will want to spend countless hours enjoying. Unfortunately, some homeowners aren’t aware of the areas of their properties that are best equipped to fully utilize outdoor lighting, which can lead to lighting that fails to illuminate the best aspects of their yards and homes.

What’s worse? Some homeowners choose cheap outdoor lighting systems from their local box stores, which aren’t built for longevity and get consistently duller over time. This can make for an uninspired and unimpressive outdoor lighting display and can discourage you from ever spending time outdoors at night.

Luckily, by hiring an outdoor lighting professional — who has years of experience designing and installing the best quality exterior lighting systems (like NightVision Outdoor Lighting) — you can effectively create the most vibrant lighting display. At NightVision, we know exactly where to place outdoor lighting to highlight the best areas of your property.

In order for you to understand how the proper outdoor lighting system is designed and installed, let’s explore the areas of your property where exterior lighting works the best:

Outdoor Lighting For Your Landscaping

Installing landscaping in your yard is the perfect way to add character and charm to your property’s outdoor areas. Whether you choose to install rockwork, shrubbery, trees, or fountains, proper landscaping can fully encapsulate your sense of style and make your outdoor areas instantly more attractive.

With that said, while landscaping is fully visible and beautiful during the day with natural light, all of this beauty can disappear at night without the proper outdoor lighting system. At NightVision Outdoor Lighting, our Atlanta homeowners request landscape lighting the most, as it can make a massive impact on the curb appeal of one’s home.

Using our industry-grade LED lighting fixtures — which are extremely longer lasting than your standard halogen light bulb fixture — we meticulously design each landscape lighting system to highlight y our yard’s best features. This means when you spend time outdoors at night with your family or friends, your rockwork, foliage, and fountains will be fully illuminated and stand out in a professional manner.

Landscape lighting can draw attention to your outdoor features in an interesting and dynamic way. For example, our professionals can illuminate the canopy of your favorite tree from below. This type of lighting can have a very impressive effect, as the contrast between the dark leaves and the light from below is quite striking.

NightVision Outdoor Lighting can also incorporate deck lighting elements in such a way that they create a sense of ambiance without highlighting any one particular feature. We can even design a lighting set-up to mimic the glow of natural moonlight, creating an oasis of soft exterior lighting in your yard. We can also use our knowledge of landscape lighting to set your pond or garden apart from the rest of the yard and illuminate its best features. Your friends and family will enjoy the newly created atmosphere for years to come.

Home Accent Lighting

Here in Georgia, the climate is ideal for spending time outdoors. During the summer, the evening is often the best time to be outside, as the days can reach very high temperatures. Well-designed exterior lighting can help you fully take advantage of your yard. A nighttime stroll through your garden can be very pleasant, but not if you can’t see the flowers or your next step. Our landscape lighting designs will make your yard as inviting to wander through after sunset as it is during the day.

The home exterior lighting specialists at NightVision Outdoor Lighting can use path lighting and deck lighting techniques to transform your yard into a place where you will always enjoy spending an evening. You will be proud to show off our landscape lighting work to your friends.

Outdoor Path Lighting

It is not easy to watch your step in the dark, but exterior lighting can help. Landscape lighting can guide walkers along a path, such as a driveway, stepping stones, or between the beds of a garden. We also provide deck lighting to guide your guests up and down steps or around the deck area.

Residential outdoor lighting is an appealing and effective way to define boundaries between different parts of a yard. It is also an important safety feature if your yard contains steps, a pond, or varying elevations. A properly lit path can prevent an uncomfortable fall.

Although home exterior lighting is aesthetically pleasing on its own and can enhance the overall appearance of a yard, it is typically a supporting player in the overall deck and landscape lighting plan, and is designed with this role in mind.

By keeping outdoor lighting subtle, other effects will be able to stand out. For example, path lighting is usually kept close to the ground or oriented so that the beam points downward, so as not to distract walkers and cause them to accidentally walk off the path.

Professional Deck Lighting

A deck is a great place to relax or entertain, and our outdoor lighting installation will allow you to get the most out of your deck at any time of day. NightVision Outdoor Lighting is prepared to meet your deck lighting needs to create a stylish and safe outdoor environment.

There’s nothing like sitting out on your deck with a book or a drink, enjoying the view and the good weather. What a disappointment it would be if, after spending a pleasant afternoon outside on your deck, you were forced to retreat inside when the sun went down.

Like any other part of your home, your deck should be available to you at any time and not have its use limited by a lack of light. NightVision Outdoor Lighting, your landscape lighting specialists, can make your deck the perfect evening escape with high quality exterior lighting.

No longer will nightfall confine you to the indoors. By allowing us to illuminate your deck, you will not only enhance your home’s appearance, you will also be increasing your home’s usable space.

Well-designed deck lighting and landscape lighting can help you create the atmosphere you want for your outdoor living space. If you enjoy entertaining, you may want a very brightly lit deck so that you can bring the party outside.

However, you may prefer a softer, dimmer environment for a quieter, more intimate setting. Whatever your preference, NightVision Outdoor Lighting can help you create the exterior lighting effect you’re looking for.

In addition to enhancing ambiance, landscape lighting is an important safety feature. If your deck and paths are not well lit, there is always the risk that someone will misstep and fall. This is especially a concern for stairs.

Proper deck lighting ensures that you, your family, and your friends will always have enough light to avoid stumbling while walking up or down the steps to your deck. Knowing that your deck and paths are safely lit will give you peace of mind while entertaining and enjoying your outdoor space.

NightVision Outdoor Lighting uses only the highest quality landscape lighting fixtures and our deck lighting components are the best in the business.

We will design and install the lighting for your deck to your complete satisfaction, as well as provide service and replacement for the lighting fixtures.

We are confident that you will be pleased with the ultimate outcome of our work. Contact our experts today to get started on your next lighting project.
