Hardscape lighting options not only make spaces safer at night, but they also make them more beautiful as well. If you’re working with new construction, it’s easier to integrate hardscape lighting. However, if you’re working on lighting for a hardscape that’s already complete, solutions are still available. For example, you can install new hardscape lights around an existing patio or pool, as well as on stairways. In this guide, we here at Valley Landscaping, Stone and Patio want to take you through some hardscape lighting options. You’ll be able to see what’s available, how to get more information and contact us to find out which might work best for you.
Commercial Hardscape Lighting Options
If you’re a business owner, you’re aware of the significance of curb appeal and safety day or night. You want to create a place that’s safe and beautiful for employees, as well as anyone else coming onto the property. Some examples include:
- LED outdoor lighting
- Motion-sensor lighting
- Recessed lighting
- Task lighting
Eliminate shadows on your business’s property while simultaneously adding interest to the property. Highlight fountains, paths, visitor areas, outdoor dining, and more. If you’re considering expanding your patio area into your yard or installing a fire pit on your property, then having subtle lighting can be a boon. Not only will your guests appreciate it but also it’ll increase the value and appeal of your property.
Deck, Driveway, and Patio Lighting
These hardscape lighting options are a beautiful addition to your home’s landscape. No matter if you’re highlighting an outdoor fireplace or retaining wall, these lighting options add interest to your outdoor designs. Incorporating these options enable you to create outdoor living spaces that are elegant and eye-catching.
Use hardscape lighting options to illuminate gardens, pathways, and walkways on your property. Prevent trips and falls by balancing security lights with outdoor living lighting. That way, you’re naturally enhancing the beauty of your outdoor living and gardening spaces. You can also incorporate solar lighting into your hardscape designs to take advantage of lighting up spaces immediately as the sun starts setting. These options are also energy-efficient and help reduce your utility bills. Having garden lighting allows you to enjoy your property for more of the day. Also, it gives you the opportunity to host early evening and evening events while still highlighting your landscaping.
Outdoor Living Hardscape
Our experienced landscape designers can show you how pathways throughout your property can create a garden-like feel. Thus, your backyard will feel serene and full. Also, we specialize in the installation of permeable pavers. This is a great way to not only give the exterior of your home a new look but care for your property. Permeable pavers are an excellent way to minimize drainage problems, which when handled poorly can lead to major issues with both your home and property.
Examples of Hardscape Lighting Options
Your property might not be the same as your neighbor’s, but that doesn’t mean many of these won’t work.
- Accent your firepit’s benches with flanking lights
- Add hardscape lighting along a beautiful stone wall
- Create architectural symmetry using lighted paver stones
- Enhance your brick entryway using column lighting
- Include light-up cobblestones or pavers in your walkway’s design
When you’re thinking about improving your property’s exterior, don’t let the options overwhelm you. It might be tempting to fill every space with lighting elements. However, that creates a busy design that casts off too much light. Instead of working on this project alone, consider contacting Valley Landscaping, Stone and Patio at 410.983.6261 to learn how we can help with your hardscape lighting options.
