How It Works
Every design begins with your goals. We begin our lighting design process by setting up a complimentary consultation with you. In this consultation, our designers will work with you to determine what your vision is for your property. What do you want to use your outdoor space for? Which areas or features do you want to highlight? Our lighting designers work to create functionality and stunning ambiance while factoring in the unique architecture of your home. We offer free nighttime lighting demonstrations where you can see what a potential design will look like on your property.
After nailing down your vision for your home, our designers will schedule a time to install your residential lighting design. It’s quick, efficient, and non-invasive. By the time we leave, you’ll barely know we were ever there – sans the beautiful, new lighting system you’ll have as a result. Once everything is installed, we will come back for a nighttime demo where you can see your home lighting design in action. From there, we will make any adjustments and tweaks to your exterior house lights that you would like. We don’t leave until you are 100% satisfied with your design.
We only use low voltage, long-lasting LED fixtures for safety and easy maintenance. All the fixtures are of high quality and made of brass. We want to make sure you have long-lasting fixtures that will hold up against the elements and the natural passage of time.

Residential Lighting FAQs

How deep is the wire buried?
We bury our wires 8-10 inches into the ground for safety and discretion.
How invasive is burying the wire?
Our digging process for wire burial during residential lighting installations is very discreet. Unlike when digging for irrigation, we do precision digs that cause minimal to no disruption. After the wire is pushed into the ground, the ground is stitched back up. You won’t know we’ve even been there when we’re done.
Is there an average number of lights needed for each installation?
Each house is different and will be evaluated on a case by case basis. Because your property is completely unique, your residential lighting installation will be curated specifically for your property’s needs. Every property is a blank canvas. Some properties may require more lights than others, but there is no standard or average amount of lights needed. Our pricing is per light, so our team will work with you to create a plan that accomplishes your goals and stays within your budget.
Should I install lights on the second floor of my home or on the ground?
Your satisfaction is our highest priority, and although we are happy to install your lights on the second or higher floor, we generally recommend a ground placement. We recommend having lights placed on the ground shooting up as opposed to from the roof or higher story shooting down for a couple of reasons:
1. You don’t have to depend on someone to change a bulb if and when your bulbs burn out. If placed on a second or third floor, you will need a professional to do so.
2. When lights are placed higher up and shooting down, the hot spot is near the roof, so the eye is drawn somewhat unnaturally upward. When placed on the ground level shooting up, the hot spot is comfortably at eye level.
How long should I keep my lights on for at a time? How much will it cost to run the lights all night?
We recommend leaving your residential lights on from dusk until dawn. Overnight lighting not only boosts security, but also casts your property in stunning light. You’re investing in a custom lighting display, so we always recommend you utilize it. Our bulbs are warrantied for a long time, so there is no risk of overuse. Running your display overnight is not cost-prohibitive either. The power usage is pennies per month when running a 12 volt LED system.
Our team of experienced professionals will make sure your lighting system is safely installed. Depending on the number of lights you would like, our team will choose a quality transformer that will support a system of that size. The installation process begins with wiring the transformer. A skilled professional can then install the transformer on the wall of your home or property. Houston Lightscapes will work to assemble the LED lights and put our custom made fixtures together with industry approved bulbs. Once the lights have been assembled and connected, our team will cover and bury any wires, finishing up the installation process.
