Atlanta outdoor lighting is increasing in popularity as people are becoming more aware of the benefits it offers. With improvements in mosquito control in Atlanta – mosquito misting systems effectively creating a barrier to flying insects – deck and pool areas are more pleasant places to be at night. Pool and landscape lighting can be used to illuminate your pool and the areas around it that make your home so beautiful.
By installing outdoor landscape lighting, you can not only light up your deck and pool, but also other features around your home. You can highlight your favorite trees or flower beds with dramatic colors, or illuminate them with a soft natural look. Imagine a fountain with the water backlit to display a beautiful glittering crystal shower against a backdrop of the softly lit exterior of your home.
Landscape Lighting and Your Imagination
You can achieve an almost unlimited range of effects with landscape lighting, such as picking out the paths and walkway in your yard or garden with softly glowing lights and defining the boundaries around your home. You can highlight steps, gates and other functional aspects of your home. Your yard can look totally different at night than it does in the daytime. It’s difficult to highlight the best elements of your gardens or yard during daylight hours, but at night you can use your imagination.

Multiple Outdoor Lighting Circuits
Deck barbecues become more fun against the backdrop of a yard enhanced at night with accent lighting and soft artificial moonlight creating a wonderful atmospheric effect all around you. Accent lighting can also be used to provide extra illumination to outdoor dining areas , patio tables and pool loungers. It is possible to operate the different types of lighting and their locations from multiple circuits, so each can be activated with its own switch.
Your entire yard need not all be lit at once. You can have the option to activate lighting circuits when and where you wish, highlighting different parts of your yard or your home at different times. One evening your fountain can be shimmering white, and the next you can illuminate it with a soft blue color with a blue or red crystal shower rising and falling from the fountain. Beautiful effects for beautiful gardens!
Landscape Lighting for Security and Safety
Which brings us to safety: you can set your lighting on a timer or on a light meter, so that your yard or home exterior is lit up when visibility reaches a certain level. This tends to deter intruders: they would generally prefer the yard, paths and exterior of your home not be lit up. This type of security lighting should be installed in the darker areas of your yard and at entrance points. It makes it more difficult for thieves or vandals to hide when entering your property.
Safety is another factor. Steps, pools and other hazards can be a risk to your family and visitor at night. You can make your entire property safer if such hazards are lit at night, at least until bedtime. So, at a minimum, you should light the entrances and walkways through your driveway and yard to your home so it safer and easier for visitors to avoid tripping hazards.
Fire Up Your Imagination – Make it Real
However, apart from security, safety and functional purposes, landscape lighting is simply a beautiful, if not a dazzling way, to present your home and its surrounding assets. Don’t hide what you have at night – what looks ordinary in daylight can appear magnificent at night when appropriately illuminated. A simple path through the yard, from the gate to your doorway, can be fairy walkway for young children when lit up at night with twinkling lights.
Your yard and garden are your canvas. Night Vision, Atlanta’s top landscape lighting company, will provide you with the means to convert that into a work of art that will WOW your neighbors and visitors. Atlanta outdoor lighting allows your imagination to become real!
