Landscaping is as integral a part of your home as the interior, providing a lovely yard to enjoy warm days and pleasant nights. Professional landscaping can be a major undertaking, but it can also improve the value of your home a great deal, as well as offering years of enjoyment for you and your family.
Most people don’t realize the various elements that go into quality landscaping, which can go far beyond plants and pathways. Electrical lighting, in particular, plays a key role in the process. While discussing your landscaping options with a gardener, you may want to consult a qualified electrician to get his or her opinion as well. Here’s how lighting can improve your landscaping.
In the first place, you don’t use your yard in the daytime alone. Evening parties, barbecues, and even just a few drinks after hours can be made easier with a nice yard to enjoy them in. Lighting ensures that you can use the yard in the evening with safety and comfort. Without the lighting (or with inadequate lighting), you’ll be denying yourself a key portion of the day and limiting the use of your yard in the process. A good lighting system helps you take full advantage of those days and nights when it’s too nice to stay indoors.
There’s also the idea of aesthetics. When properly deployed, your lights can do wonders for the atmosphere in your yard: highlighting key spots or providing an overall sense of warmth and wonder. It makes your yard more inviting, facilitating get-togethers or quieter evenings at home with your family. All of that comes along in addition to the most basic function of lighting: allowing you to find your way in the dark. An adequate lighting service can provide that basic function, but a good one – working in conjunction with your landscaping service and with a clear sense of what you want to achieve with the yard – can help make it so much more.

Pendant Lighting Does It All
- All-purpose illumination: Space pendants throughout the room for overall lighting. The larger the area, the bigger the pendant light should be.
- Task lighting: Focus pendant lights on a specific work area, such as over a sink or desk area. One small pendant may be sufficient for certain task applications.
- Accent lighting: Highlight specific areas of your kitchen to create interest and depth to your design.
Pendants should be hung at a height that doesn't block views across the kitchen. Featured pendants: Progress Lighting's Dynamo collection
Hanging a Kitchen Pendant Light
- Pendant lights should hang 12-20 inches below an 8-foot ceiling. For each additional foot of ceiling height, add 3 inches.
- Pendant height can also be measure up from the surface below the light/ Provide a 30-36 inches clearance above tables and countertop, especially those used for task lighting.
