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!

 

 

 

 

Have Your Landscape Lighting Repaired at the Start of the Year

It’s a new year and your to-do list for the start, and for the rest of the year is undoubtedly growing. There are probably plenty of items you wanted to do or have done recently, but put off because of the impending holiday season. Now that it’s over, it’s a great time to make the year’s start productive. If your landscape lighting isn’t what it was, or parts seem to have burned out, have it repaired now.

Have Your Landscape Lighting Repaired at the Start of the Year.

Your landscape lighting may seem like something that belongs lower on your list of priorities. However, think of all the things that your lighting does for your home. There are the little benefits, like enhancing your home, making it look like one of the most beautiful in the neighborhood. Missing lights take away from the glamour of your setup.

There is also nighttime vision. If you make use of your backyard, or patio at night, you want to be able to see. You want your guests to be able to see, too. Plus, if you have to go out at night for some reason–to inspect or do some late-night task–it’s important that you have as much light as possible, even if you have a flashlight.

Security is one of the bigger reasons to have your landscape lighting repaired immediately. Don’t let your home spend any longer without outdoor lights that help deter criminals. Get those missing and broken lights repaired so that you can get back to feeling safe for the rest of the year.

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.

The Benefits Of Outdoor Lighting

As a homeowner, you are always looking for ways to add to your home, whether for additional value, or additional comfort. While many people spend hours preparing the inside of their homes, many seem to forget about the exterior. There are many ways you can add to the exterior of your home, and outdoor lighting is one of the simplest and most effective ways to do so. You can add just a few accent lights, or light up the night, all according to your preference. Below, we took some time to lay out a few benefits of outdoor lighting.

Security

 

Here in Texas, many of our homes are visited by nighttime critters and garden-eating deer. However, with outdoor lighting, these animals will find our home significantly less inviting! Additionally, the lights will make your home a difficult target for unwanted human visitors as well. Statistics show that darker homes are at greater risk of break-ins when compared to homes with lighting systems.

Functionality

Outdoor lighting makes it easier for yourself and your family to navigate around your property at night. You could light up the yard for safe play time for the kids, or just light up the patio for pleasant dinners outside. The possibilities are infinitely customizable to your preferences!

Furthermore, many of our systems come with options for motion sensors and timers, so you won’t even have to lift a finger to enjoy your new lights. If you are interested in learning more about our outdoor lighting options, give us a call at  817-345-3696 and speak with one of our specialists. We have been providing lighting services to DFW for years, and we would love to show you the difference our designs can make!

 

Patio Lighting & the Benefits

DFW’s restaurants and home patios need patio lighting and here’s why: The patio is the place to be most of the year. Known as one of the warmer places all year round, we should embrace the idea that most of the time we experience gorgeous evenings that are spent with either family or friends or even solo. Sometimes these evenings are low-key or intimate and sometimes they’re large group gatherings with a busy and loud atmosphere. Either way, laughably, it would be nice to see each other during these times.

Benefits to Patio Lighting

Most restaurants do a decent enough job of keeping their patio lighting on once the sun sets. The only thing that’s a real turn off for most restaurants is that the mood that could be felt inside an establishment didn’t carry outside. Outside, many restaurants have simple lighting that may be too bright or too dim outside – or maybe even just too simple.

Out to Dinner

For businesses with patio space and whom entertain guests after sunset, remember that the atmosphere of your fantastic establishment is what brought them there in the first place. You begin to lose your visitors when they start to feel as though their leaving – lighting can help you with this.

Entertaining at Home

At home, embrace the warm evenings with appropriate patio lighting, especially when you invite family over who don’t get to enjoy such nice weather most of the time. Entertaining a group of guests outside is always nicer with the right atmosphere. Sound and lighting are the two largest factors of setting atmosphere and keeping it.

Get the Right Patio Lighting for You

There are many affordable options on the market that will allow you to easily upgrade your patio space. Something like party patio lighting (Strings of medium bright bulbs that hang overhead) might even do the trick. If you’d like to get a little more elaborate and really do your patio some justice take a look at some of the options Majestic does with feature and fixture lighting.

There’s always more we can do with our spaces, business and personal. Let Majestic Outdoor Lighting help you with your outdoor lighting set up by calling (817) 345-3696. Our specialists can discuss affordability and ideas with you anytime.

Steps to Ideal Landscape Lighting

Landscape lighting provides an ideal way to create a more entertaining, beautiful, and safer outdoor environment for your home. Difficulties arise, however, when you get confronted with the sheer wealth of options for landscape lighting. For an easier job with the design of your set-up, keep these tips in mind.

Consider Your Reasons

Landscape lights add both beauty and functionality. Before you begin the design of your layout, you should identify a primary goal. Do you want to illuminate pathways for ease of walking? Highlight different landscape elements? Or is security your primary aim? Regardless of which you choose, keep it in the forefront of your mind. When you sit down to design your lighting, new emphases may get added; but you should never get distracted from your main goal.

Understand Different Techniques

Outdoor lighting has defined itself through various techniques. Deck lighting, for example, generally gets used to illuminate safety hazards such as stairs and raised walkways. Grazing, a technique that works well with climbing plants, uses lights placed within 12 inches and parallel to a target. Floodlights work well with trees, while flower-focused lights can highlight elements of your landscape.

Landscape lighting

Outdoor lighting can both accentuate design elements and make your home safer.

Consider Cost

Cost for landscape lights can vary dramatically. The type of bulbs you use, the fixtures, and the wattage requirements all contribute to the cost. As you plan your strategy, you should also consider the monthly adjustment to your electric bill. Work with a professional designer, such as Majestic Outdoor Lighting, can actually save you money in this regard. A professional installer will help you design landscape lighting to your needs for as cheaply as possible. You will not waste money on unnecessary fixtures, or set up an inefficient system.

Benefits of Outdoor Motion Sensor Lights

Outdoor Light at Night

Motion sensor lights can make a nighttime arrival more comfortable.

Motion sensor lights spring on immediately when they detect movement within their range. The next time you consider some additional outdoor lighting, keep in mind these three benefits to a motion sensor set up. To learn more or inquire about outdoor lighting options in the Metroplex, do not hesitate to contact Majestic Outdoor Lighting at (817) 345-3696.

Key Benefits

Ease of Arrival: No one likes to arrive to a darkened house after nightfall. We can install outdoor motion sensor lights that illuminate your drive or door upon arrival. The comfort of this feature cannot be overstated, as you no longer have to fumble in the dark for keys. You also no longer have to leave the light on all night, simply for it to illuminate your return.

Crime Prevention: Darkness provides a lot of comfort for would-be intruders. If a thief approaches your home after nightfall, motion sensor lights will spring to action to blow their cover. Best of all, the intruder will never know whether they tripped a motion sensor — or whether someone inside the home has seen their approach.

Animal Deterrence: Most nocturnal pests strive to avoid light. If you live in a more rural area, you understand the annoyance of skunks, raccoons, and possums that lurk near your house. As these animals approach, intent on raiding your trashcans or assaulting pets, motion sensor lights can encourage them to scurry.
