Landscape Lighting for Pleasure and Safety - Outdoor Lighting Experts

Murray Landscaping specializes in creating beautifully lit landscapes. In helping you design and implement your landscape lighting plan, we take a number of things into consideration.

Safety is always a top concern. Outdoor lighting is a great way to keep your family and visitors safer after the sun goes down. The more landscape lighting you have, the safer everyone will be!

Security goes hand in hand with safety, but is typically a little more specialized. Security is important anywhere, even in towns like Kalamazoo, Portage, Battle Creek, Richland, Gull Lake and Mattawan, where crime rates are low. The best way to avoid becoming a victim is to make yourself an unappealing target. Adding outdoor lighting elements to your landscape like floodlights, spotlights, motion activated systems, and anything that casts a lot of light on your exterior walls, windows, and entrances makes unwanted intruders keep moving down the road.

Light Pollution
Light pollution is another landscape lighting consideration. The Midwest, including Michigan, is one of the most affected parts of the globe.Depending on your community and personal interests, you may want to consider outdoor lighting that is designed with light pollution in mind. This can include having your outdoor lights set on a timer, or using lower watts or tightly focused directional lighting, instead of huge, high power spotlights, to illuminate your landscape and your home's fa├žade. We are very experienced with giving the right amount of attractive, safe lighting, without causing issues with light pollution.

Color Temperature

This is an easily neglected and misunderstood component of landscape lighting design. Outdoor lighting, like all other types, is measured by temperature, to describe its coloration. Don't be confused, the higher the temperature, numerically, the cooler, or bluer it looks. When light is described as cool or warm, this refers to more blue or more yellow-orange, respectively. Cooler lighting can look more natural in your yard, while warm landscape lighting can add intimacy to a small space, like a fire pit or outdoor dining area. A thoughtful combination of the two may be just the ticket to give your landscape the night-time look you've always dreamed of. Our landscape lighting design will incorporate your preferences for the lighting color temperature.

Design Focus and Styling

What do you want the focus of your landscape lighting to be? Some of our clients prefer to emphasize the home and the architecture, while others prefer to put the focus on the natural accents of the landscape, like trees, bushes, or water features. Also think about whether you are looking for a natural look for your landscape, or a more dramatic setting for your home. This is all about your personal preference and vision, but our expert lighting professionals at Murray Landscaping will be able to guide you and implement your preferences.

These days energy consumption is a priority for many when planning a new outdoor lighting project. In the past few years LED lighting has dropped in price to become competitive with incandescent, and it is the most energy efficient type of outdoor lighting available. We will help you choose from a spectacular array of options and casts for beautiful, quality light. In addition, in most cases our landscape lighting experts can convert your existing landscape lighting to energy efficient LED lighting, without the need to replace your fixtures.

Murray Landscaping will help you weigh the pros and cons of different types of landscape lighting, construct a lighting plan to fulfill your priorities, and then implement that plan in an efficient, cost effective manner.
