The Importance of Outdoor Garden Lights

Garden Lights

Garden Lights Can Both Accentuate Your Garden and Provide for Safe Nighttime Enjoyment.

If you have put forth the effort to create an impressive outdoor garden, you should also attend to its lighting needs. In addition to practical benefits like improved safety, garden lights can also accentuate your garden’s standout elements. As evening falls, a well-curated garden will become a different environment entirely. Garden lighting lets you enjoy everything that your garden has to offer!

Accentuate Standout Elements

Garden lights draw attention to your garden’s best elements, and can create unique effects when correctly installed. For example, lighting on a tree can create a dappled effect when applied to the canopy. Subtle lighting can also accentuate sculptures or water elements, and will create a unique impact through careful installation.

Safety and Convenience

Wandering through a garden in the dark simply isn’t safe. In the absence of lighting, safety concerns would make you actually avoid your garden after nightfall. Landscape lighting can create an invitingly ambient atmosphere that draws you and your visitors to the garden. It can also illuminate pathways and potential hazards to ensure safe enjoyment.

Security

A well-lit property will help deter thieves and trespassers. If your garden represents a substantial portion of your property, you should absolutely have it lit for security. Gardens without lighting can become refuges for trespassers to observe your home. With proper lighting, you can rest easy in the knowledge that your garden remains a safe haven.

At Majestic Outdoor Lighting, we can provide for exceptional garden lights in Dallas, TX. To learn more or schedule installation from our professional team, simply give us a call at (817) 345-3696.

Adding Lights To Your Home

 

lights

In the world we live in today, we have to be careful with every single thing we do. It may seem economical to turn your lights all off at night, but that leaves a window right open for someone to be able to sneak into your yard or break into your house. There are several things you can do to keep safe and protect yourself from things like this from happening. When you add lights to your yard, you are drawing positive attention to your home. Instead of it being something negative, it is something that will keep your home safer.

 

Adding flood lights – If you add a few floodlights to your backyard, it will keep the main parts of the house lit up. This is a great idea because it will keep people from being able to just walk up to your back door without having someone potentially see them.

Ground Lights – Adding lights to the ground in front of your house not only looks beautiful, but it will add an extra level of security to your home. Not many robbers are going to choose the most well-lit house on the street to break into because they are more likely to become caught.

With just these few options, you can see why it is a good idea to add lighting to your home. We can go over options and pricing that works best for you if you call Majestic Outdoor Lighting at (817) 345-3696.

Exterior Lighting 101

We know that outdoor lighting provides aesthetics, security, and safety to your home, but which lighting is right for your exterior and your budget? The Majestic Outdoor Lighting experts can discuss your exterior lighting options, and help you find the perfect match.

Find Out Which Type of Exterior Lighting is Right for Your Home

Our Exterior Lighting Options Will Illuminate and Protect Your Home.

 

Security Lights

Many homeowners look for exterior lighting that can provide security in their yard. For these individuals, spotlights or floodlights may be the answer. Floodlights are generally inexpensive and attach directly to the exterior of your home. They come in multiple sizes, styles, and brightnesses, and can be sensitivity adjusted. Spotlights, on the other hand, are used in landscaping and can provide accent as well as security lighting. These lights, however, are slightly more expensive because new wiring must be run during installation. These lights look great highlighting trees, bushes, and flower beds, and can provide an extra level of security throughout your yard.

Accent Lighting

Multiple types of accent lighting are available to allow you to create the precise look you want. Uplighting is the most commonly used accent lighting and attaches to the bottom exterior of your home to provide light in an upward sweep around the outer perimeter. These lights are available in different brightnesses and styles and can be programmed as motion sensing or continuous power lighting solutions. Walkway, flower garden, and poolside lights are also common and are typically flat cans that install flush with the ground. These lights project a dimmer light directly upward to provide a luminous accent throughout your space.

Considerations When Choosing Your Lighting

When choosing your home’s exterior lighting, consider the space to be covered as well as how bright you prefer the light to be. Some lighting options, such as floodlights, offer levels that extend from extremely dim to blindingly bright. Consider whether your light’s purpose is security or appearance to help you decide on strength, direction, and cost.

No matter which type of lighting you want for your home’s exterior, the Majestic Outdoor Lighting professionals are ready to provide you with expert installation that’s quick and convenient. Call us today at __PHONE__ to learn more about our exterior lighting services.

How Outdoor Lighting Provides Additional Security To Your Home

Is your home as safe as you would like it to be? There are many things you can do to add security to your home, including adding lights! Today we will go over the various ways your home can benefit from strategic outdoor lighting.

Throughout your property, there are different styles and techniques that lighting can be arranged in. The right lighting will add ambiance to your pool, your garden, and any outdoor seating areas. However, when done properly, these lights can be far more than accent lighting.

Safety Lighting

Putting lighting outside of your home makes your home safer. For example, lights around the pool ensure nobody stumbles in at night, and lights around pathways keep you safe from critters and other hazards in the dark. Additionally, your outdoor lights can be designed to improve security.

First of all, no trespasser wants to be seen, so having lights around the property can keep intruders from risking your yard at all. However, if you don’t want to have the lights on all of the time. Our motion sensor lights are designed to only come on when they sense motion. This way, if anyone does decide to creep around in the darkness of your yard, the lights will snap on and illumniate the property.

If you want to improve your security system with outdoor lighting, contact Majestic Outdoor Lighting today at (817) 345-3696. We provide great services at fair prices, and we are committed to customer satisfaction. To get an idea of our results, be sure to check out our gallery too!

Maintenance Visits For Outdoor Lighting

After we set up your lights, we do our best to make sure everything is ready to brighten up your property for many seasons to come. However, as with anything, lights age, and the weather can uncover hidden wires over time. In order to keep everything in the tip top shape we installed it in, we do offer an regular maintenance program, to make sure you continue to get the most out of your investment, and your home keeps it’s beautiful custom glow. Below, we’ve described the basic services included in our maintenance plans.

Lens Cleaning

Similar to the way the headlights on your car start to develop a foggy glow over time, your lighting lenses can do the same. During our maintenance visits, we remove these lenses, soak them until they are clear again, and return them to their places.

Fixture & Wire Adjustment

Because the wind and rain can uncover your wires over time, we come in and rebury or hide them as needed. This is as essential for longevity as it is for aesthetics, as hidden wires are safe wires from pests, feet, and the elements. If any of your fixtures have been loosened or become crooked, we can fix and adjust these issues as well.

Bulb Replacement

Every light bulb will eventually burn out, but you don’t have to worry. High or low, our team is happy to replace burnt out bulbs as needed!

Contact our office today at 817-345-3696 to learn more about our lighting maintenance program. Our appointments start as low as $300 and we can adjust the services as necessary for your personal lighting needs!

2017 Poolside Lighting Trends

poolside_lightingDallas / Fort Worth homeowners looking to transform their backyard pool into a visual paradise should consider the lastest poolside lighting trends. If you plan on entertaining guests by the pool in 2017-2018, the time is now to invest. Majestic Outdoor Lighting offers poolside lighting services to residents of DFW. While popularity comes and goes for many styles of outdoor lighting, certain setups have established themselves this year. Check out these latest trends:

Floating Lights

We’ve all seen lights surrounding the pools exterior, but what about inside the pool? With floating lights, you can be the talk of the neighborhood. These light floats add a certain decor to your pool and backyard. There is also a party and entertainment element to these lights which will make your backyard the place people are talking about.

LED Lights

For those homeowners looking for the most cost-efficient lighting, LED is still popular on the market. When people think about LED lights by their poolside, they should think color versatility and energy efficiency. The aesthetic benefits include serene, atmospheric, lighting, along with an accentuation of the water.

Uplights

If you want lights that shine upwards to illuminate your backyard setting, uplights are the choice for you. This style creates a distinct atmospheric vibe that highlights the pool during the dark of night. This lighting is also good for pets, specifically ones that attempt to get away in your backyard, over or through a fence, especially when homeowners are swimming and entertaining guests. Call (817) 345-3696 for poolside lighting in Dallas / Fort Worth.

The Cost of Professional Landscape Lighting

How Much Does Professional Landscape Lighting Cost in Dallas Fort Worth?

Answer: It depends.

Let me explain. While we cannot give you an exact price until we meet with you, we can give you a general idea of what it will cost you. In general, you can expect to pay anywhere from $5,000 to $10,000 for your professionally designed and installed landscape lighting system. That being said, we have installed landscape lighting systems for as low as $2,500 and some that cost well over $50k.

The following factors will impact the overall price of your landscape lighting system.

Design & Layout

Many homeowners get hung up on how many lights they want installed. A professional landscape lighting design is not as much about the number of fixtures installed but more importantly about the effect that the light fixtures produce. In some cases you don’t need as many lights in a particular area that you might think and in other cases, it may take 3-4 lights to accomplish the goal of the lighting design.

So, while the number of lights is a factor in coming up with the end price, it is best to first come up with a landscape lighting design that you like. If the price for that design fits within your budget, then go with it. If not, then you can start to back out lights to get to your budgeted number. That being said, Majestic recommends rather than taking lights out of a design, to just focus on one particular area so that you get the most bang for your buck when it comes to a landscape lighting project. Removing lights from the initial design will compromise the overall look and you may not be as happy with the outcome.

Location

The location of your lights will affect the price. For example, if you have a larger property where the lights are more spread out, we will be using more wire and more labor to install them. If you have tall trees and want “moonlighting” installed, it will also be more wire and more labor to get up the trees. We normally go up approximately 40-50 feet. If you want lights built into steps, walls, columns, driveways, etc., it usually requires multiple trips to prewire so that will also affect the price.

In addition to security, outdoor lighting also ensures safety.

Quality

There are many different manufacturers to choose from. All of them have different levels of quality, price points, and warranties. While it would be impossible for a homeowner to research all of the different options available, Majestic has spent years researching and testing lights in-house to ensure that we offer the best options available to our clients. With every landscape lighting design, we offer several different options, all with different levels of quality, warranty, and price so you can decide which will work best for you.

Extras

Our standard landscape lighting systems turn on and off with a digital timer that adjusts for daylight savings. If you want more control via switches, remotes, apps, we can custom tailor any special requests. For example, we can install lights over your basketball area, kids play area, or outdoor kitchen and have those lights on a separate switch so they are not on every night. We even have lights that change colors for holidays and can be controlled individually. We can customize any landscape lighting system to your personal needs.
