“Well, I already did step 1 by finding ideas on what to light and lighting effects. Now, what and where will I light in the yard?” Mike frowns.
“Uplights for the walls, especially where those plants are. I’m going to use those landscape lighting techniques I just read about, see how good they work in my yard. Guess I’ll also see about getting those Unique Lighting systems fixtures. If the pro’s use them then they’re good enough for my yard.”
But first, Mike wants to try out the flashlight test so he can get an idea of what works and what doesn’t. He waits for it to get a little darker before grabbing his flashlight and heading out into his yard.
While out there, he also decides to get lights for the pathway around back and garden lights for the shorter plants.
As for moon lighting the patio, well, in Mike’s words, “That’s a job for professionals. I don’t need to be climbing up trees, that’s dangerous. Nobody needs to do that unless they do it for a living.”
On a serious note, please do not attempt to install lighting high off the ground as it can be dangerous.
Now Mike just needs to get Patty’s help, or approval, for the landscape lighting design so he can get to work. Or he can hire a professional lighting team (like our team) to do all the work for him.
