Are you ready for summer!? It is almost here and if you have kept up on our posts, you would know that this year is the summer of light at Richmond’s Landscaping. Outdoor Light that is! If you are looking to get the ball rolling on your outdoor lighting, here are just a couple things to think about when planning where and how much light to add to your space:
Look around your yard at night and find the places that could pose potential hazards for your family or your guests. Lighting up things like sidewalks, paths and steps adds a sense of security and makes your guest feel at home in your yard.
2. Eats and Seats
Figure out the places that you would like to have outdoor seating and also where you would set up an outdoor dining area when entertaining in your outdoor living space. These are the places that you will spend the most time relaxing, so it is very important to light this area up so you are able to enjoy it at anytime of day.
Look around your yard and think about your favorite areas. Is it a water feature, a piece of art, maybe where your kids like to play. Keep these spots in mind for lighting as you want to draw attention to the features in your yard, as well as have plenty of light in your favorite spots!
