Regardless of how well-designed and installed your landscape is, if it doesn’t have the right kind of illumination, you wouldn’t be able to use it once the sun goes down. This is why a good landscape designer will always incorporate landscape lighting design and installation as part of the boarder landscaping project.
We at Fikes Design LLC are one of the leading garden lighting contractors in Penrose, NC. We have handled a significant number of projects for customers in and around Hendersonville, Asheville, Brevard, and Waynesville.
Types of Yard Lighting
The different types of lights we can install ion your property are:
- Lamp posts
- Boundary wall lights
- Paver lights
- Outdoor kitchen lighting
- Underwater light fixtures
- Recessed lighting for stone decorative elements
- Patio lights
- Step lighting
- Lighting other outdoor elements
- Pool lighting
These fixtures have to be used in the right proportion to achieve the right effect. We also use lights to focus on interesting features and installations in your landscape, such as old and artistic-looking trees, colorful plants and shrubs, waterfalls etc. In fact, with the right type of lights we can highlight the attractive features and hide ones that aren’t too flattering to your landscape.
Energy-Efficient Landscape Lighting
Even as we design custom outdoor lighting solutions for you, we realize that so many lights can also result in very high utility costs. This is why we recommend the use of LED lights. These offer 80% energy-efficiency, last for up to 40,000 hours and emit cool light. They are also available in a range of colors and hues and this gives you the design flexibility to create ambience you want, on your property.
Other Energy-Efficient Lighting Installations
In addition, we use relays, dimmers, transformers etc. to add to the energy-efficiency aspect. While it’s true that the upfront cost of LED lighting is higher than that of standard lights, they offer value in the long term as they provide thousands of hours of illumination. The cool light they emit doesn’t affect the plants even if the exterior lighting fixtures are very close to them.
