I consulted several (6) lighting vendors and none were able to match the level of service and innovative design that Lindsey could. Her company is top notch as they have the utmost professionalism, competitive pricing and patience given my indecisiveness. It is not often that vendors exceed my expectations, but Southern Landscape has! 2 weeks after our first lighting installation we have already had the company back out to add even more. This is truly THE best lighting vendor in the business!! Thank you Lindsey!”
Alpharetta’s landscape lighting expert, Lindsey Rodericks is often asked similar questions by prospective clients, “Many clients that approach us for an outdoor lighting installation have never had one installed before, and they generally ask these three questions: Is outdoor lighting something I should prioritize? How do I get started? And should we use LED lights?”
Answering the question of whether outdoor lighting is a priority, Rodericks explains from her experience, the importance of outdoor lighting as both adding to one’s quality of life, and as a safety and security precaution. Lighting up your outdoor area means that you can spend more time outside. With shorter daylight hours during the winter months, it is still possible to enjoy being outside, even after it gets dark. Beautiful outdoor lighting also adds to the curbside appeal of a home, so if you’re thinking of selling your home at some stage, an outdoor lighting installation is the right way to go. From a safety and security perspective, a yard that is well-lit is safer when navigating steps, and uneven pathways are less risky to navigate. In addition, potential burglars are less likely to target a home with grounds that are well lit.
Aiming to shed light on the question of how to get started, the team at Southern Landscape Lighting Systems recommends taking a walk around your yard and identifying for yourself what areas you would like to highlight. Determine if there are any obvious safety or security concerns and try to imagine how you would like your garden to look. From there, an outdoor lighting specialist would come in and, through detailed questions and a series of suggestions, develop a customized outdoor lighting design.
The question of whether to use LED lights or not is one that Rodericks receives regularly. LED technology has made huge advancements in recent years, and it is now possible to get softer, more natural looking LED lights rather than the harsh, too-bright light that LEDs provided in the past. As an LED bulb can last up to 20 years, they are a relatively cost-effective, low maintenance option for an outdoor lighting installation. They are also extremely energy efficient, so energy costs are reduced, and more durable which means that they are less likely to be damaged when exposed to the harsh outdoor environment.
