OUTDOOR LIGHTING

Outdoor lighting is a landscape feature that is often overlooked.  Cooking and entertaining are greatly enhanced by outdoor lighting.  Landscape lighting is essential for safety purposes as well.  Walking down a dark path at night poses the risk of tripping over grade changes.  A dark landscape also makes it impossible to see any dangerous animals that may be hiding in the landscape, which is a very real risk in Colorado Springs.  Additionally, lighting is an effective way to prevent crime because it deters possible offenders.

In addition to all of these benefits, outdoor lighting can be an excellent way to create an ambience and set a mood; whether it’s romantic, festive, or peaceful.  It can also be used to call attention to particular focal points such as a water feature or a piece of art.  Lighting fixtures come in a wide range of styles and colors to match nearly any style of house.  They can be placed in trees, on walls, under eaves and can shine upwards or downwards for as many different effects and shadow patterns as one can think of.
