These two topics are a little far apart. We decided to group them together though because they can really be the finishing touches that can complete a great landscaping project. You don’t have to be a photographer to realize that lighting is super important. Even if you are just looking for landscape lighting to make sure that you can enjoy your backyard patio at night. Getting the right people on the job can be key. You want just the right amount of light to where you can see, but it isn’t too bright to the point where you may feel that you are being questioned by the FBI. As far as hardscapes go we can build all sorts of walkways with different designs that will allow your property to stand out!
Planning Your Hardscapes
Time and time again we have come across homes or other types of properties that have sidewalks or walkways that seemingly lead to nowhere. That can work sometimes if you are planning on building a fountain or something that the walkway could actually lead to. Maybe it did lead to something, but the plan was scrapped later on. In any case, we think it is important to plan hardscapes so that they don’t only look good, but they are actually functional in a way.
Putting In Lighting Before or After Everything else?
This is a common question that we get from clients. For the most part, we like to say that we want to put in lighting at the end of the project. The reason we say that, is when everything is set up it is easier to pick what you want to illuminate and what you don’t. We know that sometimes you really don’t have a choice. If you get the chance to chose though doing lighting when everything else is set up is a good idea!
What Type of Lights Are We Going To Use?
One of the things that you have to ask yourself when installing a light is, what is the purpose of having this light here? Sometimes people are going to want to have a light with a motion sensor that is going to turn on when they arrive home. Other people are going to want to light up their patio so that they can hold parties at night! You get the picture! The type of lighting that you are going to want to have is going to depend on the type of activity that you are going to be doing there.
We believe that when it comes to hardscapes you should have the opportunity to not play it safe. What we mean by that is, if you are looking for a little more than a simple gray concrete path you are in the right spots. We can create all sorts of hardscapes that come in all shapes, colors, and sizes. Just an FYI, small pools and fountains are also part of the equation! What is it that you want to build? We also offer drainage solution service.
