There are many practical reasons to light your property. But if you want your property to really stand out as something special, you’ll want to work with an outdoor lighting expert who knows how to use dark as well as light to create artistic lighting effects.
The most important element here is actually your dark areas, because the dark provides a foil for your lighting effects. Often the most beautiful effects are seen when there are crisp, definite divisions between light and dark.
These can be achieved in various places on your property, whether it be highlighting the architectural features on your facade, or shining light through the branches of a tree to create pleasing shadows on a wall or the ground. Whatever effect you are looking for, it can be achieved if you have the budget for it.
