An experienced landscape lighting designer has the potential to transform the outdoor area of your home. And with summer almost upon us, now could be the perfect time to choose a custom landscape lighting design in Atlanta. Starting the process of redesigning your outdoor lighting, may seem overwhelming with so many choices and different options to choose from. But, by keeping these three things in mind, it will be easier to ensure that you enjoy the process and have the perfect solution by the end of the process.
Get an Idea of What Your Home Could Look Like
Work with your landscape lighting installer to get an idea of what you can expect from your custom installation. At we offer a no-obligation free consultation where you can ask any questions that you might have, as well as getting a good idea of what the finished installation will look like.
Working directly with the installer will give you an opportunity to share what you’re looking for as well as get helpful advice and tips on how to get the most from your lighting installation. From there, our team will be able to draw up a landscape lighting design plan specifically for your home.
Choose Only the Best Fixtures
It’s important to work with a landscape lighting installer who only uses the best quality components when designing and installing an outdoor lighting system.
At Southern Landscape Lighting Systems, we use only the best products setting the bar high in terms of the quality of our products. This holds true for the full range of corrosion-proof LED lighting fixtures, wiring, and lamps. They can weather extreme outdoor conditions and remain looking good even after a couple of years.
It’s also important that the lighting performs well. LED lighting fixtures offer a long-life expectancy and consistent, high-quality light output. For low-voltage installations, it is considered best practice to use a number of different voltage transformers. This allows lamps to use a lot less energy (usually between 50% and 60%) without compromising on the quality of the light. Here there should be a balance between delivering the right amount of illumination with the intensity of the beams.
Work with LED Lighting for Your Outdoor Lighting Installation in Atlanta
LED technology is environmentally friendly which means that you don’t need to choose between the option of beautiful light or an energy efficient lighting solution. LED lighting offers much higher efficiency (with a saving of up to 80% in electricity costs) and longer light life that is easy to
manipulate in terms of controlling the light intensity and directions. LED lights are incredibly durable and function well even in extremely hot or cold temperatures.
New LED lights are far superior to previous LED technology because new technology LEDs are available in a range of color temperatures, not just the bright, hard single dimension white light. They are also ‘instant on,’ there’s no delay, flicker or need for the bulb to warm up and, because they do not contain any harmful materials, you can reduce your carbon footprint. LED bulbs have a life expectancy of over 50,000 hours. Keep in mind though, that the lifespan can vary based on the quality of the LEDs, the way that the system is designed and the environment in which they operate.
