    • Several years ago we decided to enhance our beautiful lot in order to enjoy the landscape after dark. We were pleasantly surprised to learn of the trial period, during which we were able to enjoy the lights while deciding which lighting position showed our lot at its best. We are now enjoying our fabulous yard both day and night. I... More

    Casting Your Home in the Best Light

    Last updated 7 years ago

    Does your home have curb appeal? Does your front door welcome your family and friends into your home? “Remember, when guests visit, the first thing they notice when they arrive is the front of the home – and it’s also the last thing they see when they leave," says Toby Boyd of manufacturing company Phillips Professional Luminaires.

    This ALA article offers some suggestions for things to consider when upgrading their outdoor lighting. According to the American Lighting Association (ALA), consumers should "look for outdoor lighting products in a family of sizes so they can maintain a theme throughout their residence."

    Other suggestions include:

    • Start with the front of the house: Starting in one spot can often help homeowners develop a complete outdoor lighting package
    • Size is as important as style and color
    • Check to see that your outdoor lanterns are rated for a minimum of 75 watts of incandescent or 20 watts of compact flourescent lighting
    • Consider what your lighting installation will look like at night and during the day
    • Consider using energy-efficient lighting with CFL (compact flourescent lamp) bulbs, or use low-voltage halogen systems and timers as an energy-saving alternative
    • Consult with a lighting professional

    Create a Lighting Portrait: Helpful Landscape Designs and Tips

    Last updated 7 years ago

    When the sun sets and the lights go down, what does your home look like? Strategically placed lighting opens your eyes to the beauty of your home's exterior in addition to making your home safer. Before you choose light fixtures, though, you should design and create a lighting portrait.

    Here are some helpful tips from Silver Moon Landscape and Architectural Lighting as you create a lighting landscape of your own:

    • Drive or walk around your neighborhood at night. Look at the many ways in which people light their property, until you find the look you like
    • The focal point of a home is usually the entrance. A well-designed lighting system should "direct" you or your guests to your front door
    • Ask yourself these questions: What is my focal point? What levels of light do I want to achieve? What overall effect am I trying to create?
    • A well-lit home should include fixtures that are hidden from sight. The focus of the lighting portrait should be the home. The source of the light should be difficult to find and provide as little glare as possible.
    • When trees, shrubs and flowers are lighted, it brings out their color, form and texture.

    Silver Moon Landscape and Architectural Lighting offers a full range of customized design services, from consultation to turn-key installation. For more information about our services and for more helpful design hints, please visit our website or call us at (888) 472-8701.
