Everything You Need to Know About Exterior & Landscape Lighting

The team at Legendary Lighting has some invaluable tips on outdoor lighting to ensure that your lighting needs are met with the perfect solution.

Create an Outdoor Lighting Design 

It’s important to hone in on the purpose of installing outdoor lighting. Are you looking to accent architectural features or foliage? Do you want brighter lights for your outdoor living area? Are you searching for atmospheric lighting to provide a sense of warmth and comfort? Having a clear purpose can help you plan your lighting to provide exactly what you’re looking for.

Highlight Key Features

Some of the best outdoor lighting simply highlights important features on your home and property. For instance, uplighting a particularly beautiful tree, or small pathway lights along your various walkways add just the right touch of class and function. By adding well-placed feature lights, you can draw attention to certain elements and easily create a sophisticated look. 

Choose the Right Outdoor Lighting Fixtures

It’s important to select light fixtures that seamlessly integrate with the aesthetics of your yard and home. It’s also important to consider materials that will withstand the elements. Legendary Lighting uses copper exclusively because it holds up well with any type of weathering, looks fantastic throughout each season, and withstands the test of time.

Select Smart Lighting

It’s an added bonus to have complete control over your exterior lighting. Legendary Lighting offers easy button ignition for your gas lanterns, complete with reliable wind guards so you don’t have to think about your exterior lighting. Electric copper lanterns can offer smart lighting control systems for your convenience.
