Outdoor Lighting No No's To Avoid

Failing to look into LED lighting for your outdoor space.
The LED lighting isn't just the trendy thing to do when it comes to light fixtures. It's a wonderful innovation that has many benefits.

Not getting big enough lighting fixtures for your landscape.
It's important to consider the size of your landscape when choosing your lighting. Whether you are going to have lights installed around your water feature, or you want to put a large post light by your sidewalk - keep the size in mind. While you may be trying to save money initially, after it's installed the only thing you'll be able to notice, is that it's dwarfed in size by your bushes. If you want lighting installed, create a budget and get the correct size for your yard.

Having too much lighting around your landscape.
There is such a thing as "over lighting" you landscape. Not only can you have too much lighting, but you can also have those lights arranged incorrectly, or aimed in the wrong direction. This can make it difficult to see when you're walking through your yard. If your lights are aimed incorrectly, it can mean that your lights could be shining through your neighbor's windows, or even blinding people who drive past. Too much of a good thing can be a bad thing. Rely on the expertise of your Lake of the Ozarks landscaper and we'll create a space that everyone will love.

Not investing in an automated lighting system.
Have you ever come home at night and realized that you forgot to turn the outdoor lights on? Now you're stumbling down the sidewalk in the dark with your bags of groceries, wishing that you had installed the automated lights. Automated lighting systems aren't just practical, but they are economical. By having your lighting on a timer, you are eliminating the possibility of having to pay for your electric lights being on when you don't need them.

Adding poor-quality lighting fixtures to your landscape.
A major mistake you can make when you are purchasing fixtures to choose the low-quality pieces. While you may save money at the start, you won't feel the same when you have to replace every year or two. Paradise Landscaping is proud to be a preferred vendor for Kichler LED lighting. They provide a decorative path and spread, low profile hardscape, water feature, deck, and accent lighting. They also offer a 15 year or 40,000 hours warranty for whichever comes first.
