There is a world of landscape design opportunity hiding in broad daylight. The dark canvas of nightfall offers an incredible potential for using light to paint an entirely different world than what we see during the day. In fact, our eyes see only one level of light during the daytime. When Rye Beach Landscaping has an outdoor lighting design project, our landscape lighting designer will use three levels of light to create depth and focal points.
The brighter the light, the darker the shadow. The common solution for security lighting is to mount 300 watts of light above the garage or corner of the house. Instead of being safe, it provides a dark shadow for a would-be trespasser to hide in. We can take that same 300 watts of light, spread it out over eight or ten fixtures, and cover a wider area with ambient light. Ambient lighting is relaxing also – causing less dilation of the pupils, making it easier on the eyes than a motion-detecting spotlight.
If our canvas is “night,” our paint is the “light.” We can replicate moonlight through the trees, bring out textures, and provide safe passage for your feet with soft path lighting. Daylight is always from the top-down. That is how we normally see the world. With up lighting, we can create a very different view by reversing daylight. Without a doubt, it is the artistic challenge of low-voltage landscape lighting design is what we enjoy the most.
Lifetime fixtures, professionally installed. There is a science behind landscape lighting design that can’t be ignored. Rye Beach Landscaping’s landscape lighting installers are trained and certified through Cast lighting.
Landscape lighting on the New Hampshire seacoast must be durable enough to withstand the salt and elements specific to our area. We install only the best quality solid bronze fixtures – the only finish besides, copper that will endure the salty air. The most common failures in a landscape lighting system happen at the connection points. All our wire connections are properly volted and weather tight. Each lighting zone has a central service hub for easy access.
Environmental stewardship. As with everything we do – whether using biodiesel in our trucks or paperless invoicing – Rye Beach Landscaping is concerned with minimally impacting our environment. Because of this, we are big promoters of LED landscape lighting technology. The quality of LED lighting has improved greatly over the past several years. We can balance color in an LED lighting system as well as we can in a traditional halogen-based system. But the similarity ends there. LED landscape lighting technology is superior in every way.
Perhaps the best savings is in your electric bill. An average LED lighting system will save up to 80% compared to the cost of a halogen-based landscape lighting system.
Today’s landscape lighting technology embodies everything we believe in at Rye Beach Landscaping – art, technology, and good Earth stewardship. Call us today to see how we can light up your night!
