Is outdoor lighting something you have considered, but you are a little hesitant to take the plunge? Perhaps you have heard a few myths that need to be debunked. Some common misconceptions people have about outdoor lighting might include things such as:

  • It is too expensive.
  • My property is too small (or too big).
  • It will detract from my existing landscaping or architectural features.

If any of these thoughts have ever crossed your mind, or if you would just like to learn more about outdoor lighting, you are in the right place!

Misconception #1: Outdoor Lighting is too expensive.

Here at Houston Lightscapes, we strive to deliver the most high-quality end result without our customers having to break the bank. Customer satisfaction is our top priority from start to finish, which is why we offer a free consultation before getting started. We want to hear your vision for the property, whether it is your home or your business. During this consultation we will also listen to your budget concerns and will create a plan that works for your property as well as your pocketbook. We use low-voltage, durable LED lights mounted into brass fixtures, which are proven to hold up against the passage of time and natural elements. We also offer a maintenance program to ensure the longevity of your outdoor lighting.

Misconception #2: My property isn’t the right size.

No property is too big or too small. Our experienced lighting team will listen to your goals for your property and then use that to bring the design to life. Do you enjoy grilling out on the weekends? Do you want a well-lit yard so the kids can play in safety even after dark? Is your yard small, but you would like to add light to make it feel larger? We can do all of these things and more! Not only does adding outdoor lighting increase the curb appeal of your property, but it also creates a safer environment.

Misconception #3: It will take away from my existing landscaping or architectural features.

Think again! In fact, outdoor lighting does the opposite. You can use various lighting techniques to highlight and accentuate your favorite features about your property. From water features such as pools or garden ponds all the way to architectural features such as columns or bay windows, you can choose anything you like to be the focal point of your lighting display. Our installers are also experts at putting lighting systems into place. The only change to your yard that you notice should just be the amazing new lights, and you should see minimal to zero impact to your lawn, home, and landscaping.
