Remember these tips before installing shrub and tree illumination on your property.

There is no denying that having your landscape properly illuminated makes a big difference. In fact, when it comes to everyone’s safety, incorporating tree illumination into your outdoor lighting design can be an excellent way to ensure that you safely entertain guests and add some visual appeal to your landscape. As the sun begins to set, it becomes important to make sure that people can see where they are going — and to know where central plants, shrubbery, and trees are located. As your family or friends park in your driveway, they will need to know where trees are located to avoid hitting them. Here are some of the best tips and tricks to keep in mind when it comes to tree illumination to maximize the safety of your property overall.

Ideal Illumination Fixtures And Proper Placement

There are basically two different types of tree illumination fixtures you can choose from — directional uplights and in-grade uplights. In fact, both types can be great when it comes to effective and efficient lighting for your trees. However, directional uplights are more versatile. By comparison, in-grade uplights tend to work best for low-profile trees. Ultimately, they are ideal for smaller trees because they can easily get a light down low to effectively and efficiently illuminate small or lower-to-the-ground trees that you might have on your property.

Every Tree Is Unique

All trees are not created equal. There are no two trees that are exactly the same. In reality, different trees will require their unique and specific lighting features to ensure they are adequately illuminated. Ultimately, using various light bulbs in varying sizes can more effectively and efficiently illuminate the various trees of your property. 

Proper Balance And Effective Arrangement

For the most part, having your trees illuminated is great, but it will require proper balance and arrangement of lighting features. Coordinating your trees’ lighting to amplify their illumination is essential for homeowners. The reality is that creating balance is key to building a quintessentially safe yet aesthetically pleasing exterior lighting design for your home. Discuss your tree illumination goals with the experts at Professional Electric Inc. to determine how best to balance the lighting effects on your property. We can help you find the best way to balance and range your lighting to maintain safety and visual appeal.
