Light the Way with Landscape Lighting

As the summer months start to wind down and days begin getting shorter, it may be time to consider lighting up your yard. Here at Paradise Landscaping, we know the value of having the appropriate landscape lighting installed around your home. Not only is the location of your lighting important, but also the type of lighting, the quality of the lighting, and even the purpose. Here are some types of lighting you can have installed around your home, and why it's important.


Wash
Wash lighting throws out a soft, diffused light that is ideal for brightening flat facades, privacy fences, and even garden walls. It can be hard to decide what type of lighting is important in your space, and Paradise Landscaping would love to share our knowledge with you.

Garden
This type of lighting is ideal for gardens and pathways. They sit about 18 to 24 inches off of the ground and cast a beautiful light below them. Unlike many other types of lighting their style and color are boldly on display and can look beautiful in your Lake of the Ozarks landscape.

Downlight
Are you looking for a light that would cast light from a high position? Downlights are often attached to tree trunks or branches from up high to be aimed down at lawns, paths, or even the tree's own foliage to create a moonlit effect. You won't want to skimp on materials with this type of lighting so you don't have to have them repaired frequently.

Bullet
Bullet lights are very versatile, compact fixtures and are often fitted with bulbs that project a narrow beam. This is perfect for areas where you need precise lightings around your landscape, such as house features, tree trunks, and garden structures.

Flood
Flood lighting generally casts a wider beam than bullet lighting, and it is brighter than wash lighting. A collar minimizes the glare that this light could produce, and you'll want to have it installed sparingly to light up tall trees or wide house facades.

Well
On well lights, the bulb is set down inside a waterproof fixture that is buried in the ground. You can get light without seeing the fixture. Well, lights can be used to illuminate the underside of plant foliage or light the base of a facade or wall. They can have fixed bulbs or swiveling bulbs depending on the need.
