Themes and Functional areas can be achieved using a "Lighting Portrait" designed and installed by a Outdoor Lighting Specialist. 

Balancing the Lighting Aesthetic and using proven Lighting Techniques can showcase your home and garden. Landscape lighting is best described as "Painting with Light."

"The challenge with landscape lighting is that most people don't immediately see all the possibilities," says Joe Rey-Barreau, director of the Lighting and Design Center at the University of Kentucky. "Outdoor lighting can be both functional and aesthetic. It's an art to understand how much light to place on a house or determine where the focal points are."

If designed correctly, outdoor lighting can be an extension of your home decor and can extend the use of outdoor spaces to the home while providing safety, atmosphere and space definition. Outdoor Lighting bring trees and shrubs to life at night and accentuate features around your home that are not obvious during the day. It can also be very effective in hiding unwanted features such as trash cans or utility areas.
