Outdoor Lighting

A thoughtful outdoor lighting design can be a great way to show off your landscape at night and highlight the architecture of your house. Extend your outdoor gatherings with family and friends in the evening by ensuring you have the proper landscape lighting design. Fredell Enterprises uses low-voltage outdoor lighting in Colorado Springs to provide accent and spotlighting for architecture, trees, and water features. Low-voltage LED path and step lights provide increased visibility and safety when trying to walk around your yard at night. Improving the outdoor lighting around your home can also provide more security. The subtle glow of low-voltage lighting provides enough light to illuminate small areas but does not overwhelm a yard with glaring light. The Kichler and Alliance lights we use to operate from low voltage transformers with both timers and photo-cells meaning that your outdoor lighting comes on when the sun goes down and can be programmed to turn off whenever you would like. The LED fixtures we use utilize bulbs that last up to 10 times longer than traditional bulbs.

Outdoor lighting in Colorado Springs should be refined and not overpower the home or landscape. Subtle highlights on the structure of a tree or a boulder creates interest. Similarly, soft lighting along a path or at steps guide can guide a visitor safely around a yard or to a front door. Not only can you take advantage of your beautiful landscaping and backyard during daylight hours, but with our help, you can enjoy your time outdoors into the evening.

 

Nightscape

Your front or backyard can look as beautiful at night as it does during the day with the proper low-voltage outside lighting design. With ambient lighting, accent lighting to highlight special design features, and task lighting for security and safety, your outdoor living space can be beautiful, functional, comfortable, and safe. Many outdoor living space designs include an outdoor fire pit, an outside bar and/or kitchen, seating arrangements, and water features. Highlighting these areas and other special features while making them easily accessible at night is best done with landscape lighting. Lighting is a crucial element of an enjoyable night landscape, and the landscape lighting experts at Fredell Enterprises in Colorado Springs know how to design the perfect low-voltage outdoor lighting system for your unique outdoor living space.

Low-voltage lighting fixtures add class, style, and beauty to the outside of a home. Choosing soft, non-glare path lighting that directs light downward provides your guests with enough illumination to lead them safely and gently from the driveway to your front door, or from the back door out to your deck, barbeque area, or poolside. Using uplighting to enhance the beauty of a specific tree, bring out the texture of a stone wall, or highlight a water or architectural feature will help add drama to your space.

Illuminating stairs with soft lighting helps your guests safely navigate when visiting your outdoor area at night. Many of these lighting techniques can be seen incorporated into this special project which was featured in the national trade publication Landscape Architecture and Specifier News. The seven-page article highlights a project our company designed and constructed in the Broadmoor area.
