Cape Cod Landscape Lighting

There is no reason why you can’t enjoy your landscaping even after the sun goes down.  With the proper landscape lighting, your outdoor spaces are more inviting, secure and beautiful.  Cooper Landscaping, Inc's landscape lighting makes access more safe and secure, and reveals the daytime beauty of your outdoor environment.  New, energy efficient lighting technologies and lower voltages make landscape lighting less expensive and safer.
 
 One common technique is uplighting, which focuses light and attention on an object from a low fixture location.  The object can be a shrub, tree or architectural feature like a gazebo or arbor. Bullet or well type fixtures are specified according to the mature size of the plant or the size of the hardscape area to be illuminated.
 
 Pathlighting uses low fixtures which direct illumination down and outward.  These fixtures are shielded on top to prevent glare.  They are used along walks, stairs and anywhere else that safe night access is required.
 
 Another technique is downlighting, or moonlighting.  Usually accomplished with bullet type fixtures placed above eye level on a structure (or even in a tree), this technique illuminates general areas for safety, security and aesthetics.  Fixtures and lamps are chosen for the required brightness and width of illumination.
 
 Backlighting, or silhouette lighting, provides a special effect by illuminating a fairly large surface (like a wall) using a wash light fixture.  This causes objects in front of the lighting to appear as silhouettes.
 
 The technique of shadowing also uses lights directed toward walls, but they are placed in front of the objects, so shadows play on the wall.
 
Numerous other techniques, and combinations of techniques, are available to increase your home security, safety, enjoyment and value.
